Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An engaging collection of humorous poems. These verses, originally composed to amuse Eliots intimate friends, have proven irresistible to cat lovers, lovers of nonsense, and admirers of Eliot throughout the English-speaking world. “Enough ferocious fancy and parody to knock the spots off most cat books and most...verses” (Time). Drawings by Nicolas Bentley.

About the Author

Thomas Stearns Eliot was born in 1888 in St. Louis, Missouri, and became a British subject in 1927. The acclaimed poet of The Waste Land, Four Quartets, and Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, among numerous other poems, prose, and works of drama, won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948. T.S. Eliot died in 1965 in London, England, and is buried in Westminster Abbey.

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.
