Publisher Comments:

T.S. Eliot pays tribute to Mr. Mistoffelees, The Run Tum Tugger, Macavity: The Mystery Cat, and a variety of other cats in this engaging collection of humorous poems. Originally composed to amuse Mr. Eliot's intimate friends, to whom they were sent anonymously, these verses have proven irresistible to cat lovers, lovers of nonsense, and admirers of T.S. Eliot throughout the English-speaking world.

Eliot’s famous collection of nonsense verse about cats — the inspiration for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Cats. This edition features pen-and-ink drolleries by Edward Gorey throughout.

Kid-like poetry, ohetry, woetry, rhyming, timing, occupying our minds, making us chortle, snortle and ortle! One of my faves. I read it aloud to my 4-8 year olds and they love it too. I pick it up for kid gifts.
