Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats
First published in 1939, T.S. Eliot’s collection of cat poems, written originally to amuse his godchildren and friends, has become one of the all-time favourites of children’s literature.
The naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
So begins one of the best-known poetry collections of all time. The practical cats need no introduction, but this stunning new full-colour version, illustrated by JÃºlia SardÃ , is the perfect companion to Old Toffer’s Dogs. Whether you are a cat or a dog person, you will be enchanted by JÃºlia’s highly original interpretation.
