A stunning new edition of T. S. Eliot's beloved cat poems Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, containing beautiful original colour illustrations by Axel Scheffler. Cats! Some are sane, some are mad and some are good and some are bad. Meet magical Mr Mistoffelees, sleepy Old Deuteronomy and curious Rum Tum Tugger. But you'll be lucky to meet Macavity because Macavity's not there! In 1925 T.S. Eliot became co-director of Faber & Faber, who remain his publishers to this day. Throughout the 1930s he composed the now famous poems about Macavity, Old Deuteronomy, Mr Mistoffelees and many other cats, under the name of 'Old Possum'. In 1981 Eliot's poems were set to music by Andrew Lloyd Webber as Cats which went on to become the longest-running Broadway musical in history. 'If cats, witchy or not, are your child's thing don't miss the new Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.' The Times 'A lovely edition of an old favourite . . . it will be enjoyed again and again.' Carousel 'Classic cat poems . . . are given a delightful new look.' LoveReading4Kids

“Hurrah for the Practical Cats”

This delightful collection of poems needs no commentary per se. I bought the book as a gift for an adult friend, and I think I chose the wrong edition. This one gives the impression that it is a children’s book, which... More
