Macavity the Mystery Cat
Written by T.S Eliot
Adapted and Illustrated by Arthur Robins
Published by Faber and Faber
Oh well I never! Here's a fantastic new book celebrating the wonderful feline creations of one T.S Eliot. In the 75th Anniversary year of T.S Eliot's masterful "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" we find out a little bit more about the most mysterious, the most charming, and the most devious cat of all. Macavity, Macavity - He doth defyeth gravity!
You'd expect great rhymes from Mr Eliot - and Arthur Robins' brilliant wobbly illustrations bring Macavity to life. No fish dish is safe from this devious master criminal, and the best noses in Scotland Yard can never track him down because - as they arrive on the scene, Macavity isn't there!
Charlotte soaked this book up like a hungry sponge, enthusiastically joining in on every turn of the page where the sneaky Macavity outwits his foes to triumph again and again.
What a magical marvellous Macavity he is!
"Macavity the Mystery Cat" is released on 1st May 2014 from Faber and Faber.
Charlotte's best bit: Macavity's many admirers! Purr!
Daddy's Favourite bit: Such a joy to read aloud, and such a fun frolicsome celebration of everything feline!
