Waterstones Says

A beguiling collection of quotes that spans the centuries and the globe, Puss in Books features authors from Cervantes to Colette providing pithy opinions on all things feline.

A charming collection of quotes about cats from our favourite authors, accompanied by artwork in the trademark style of Paul Magrs.

'I love them, they are so nice and selfish' - L.M. Montgomery

This collection of quotes from the literary greats explores just why cats have fascinated, mesmerised and often infuriated writers for centuries. Celebrating the mystery of these daydreaming, snarky, selfish, watchful, contemplative and changeable creatures, Puss in Books helps cat and book lovers to understand these beings who have intrigued great thinkers and writers since the dawn of time.

Quotes include:

'Time spent with a cat is never wasted' - Colette

'Those who play with cats must expect to get scratched' - Miguel de Cervantes

'If cats could write history, their history would be mostly about cats' - Eugen Weber

‘Cats are funny, feisty, loving and usually a little bit crazy. Paul has captured every one of those moods and more in his beautifully animated illustrations. Gorgeous.’ – Jane Fallon ‘This is a glorious marriage of wonderful words and illustrations. Cat-lovers everywhere will be clamouring for it.’ – Milly Johnson ‘As a lifelong cat fanatic and literature addict, this book couldn't be any more perfect for me if it tried.’ – Harper Ford ‘Famous cat quotes and Paul's paintings are the perfect match. He is one of the Kings of Cats and his book is the cat's whiskers of a cat book!’ – Antoine Laurain ‘Exquisitely beautiful and utterly fascinating.’ – Lisa Jewell ‘I read this book smiling at its wit and nodding in recognition of these universally acknowledged cat-truths that any person who is owned by cats will recognise.’ – Charlie Lyndhurst, author of The Cosy Cat Society ‘Transcending genre and age-appeal is not easy, but this delightful, freewheeling romp into the wisdom, weirdness and downright cheekiness of cat-kind does it beautifully’ – Alex Howard, author of The Ghost Cat

“Purrfect Gift”

This is the best little gift book for anyone who loves cats and their long history with authors. I loved the illustrations and the whole feel of the book, cozy and the best additional to a coffee table.
