Publisher Comments:

THE MOTHER OF ALL CAT BOOKS

"The book that single-handedly made 'Cat' a household word. . . . Nobody drew cats like Kliban. Solemn, simultaneously omniscient and dim-witted, they have all the Rubenesque grace of a 1950 Buick. His cats are as difficult to pin down and define as any real cat, and that is their ineffable magic." --From the introduction by Art Spiegelman

"Kliban's work is absolutely what cartooning is all about." -Charles M. Schulz

Synopsis:

Its the mother of all cat books. The book that gave new meaning to wacka-wacka and forever redefined it.
Cat is the classic that started it all. It gave a voice to catmaniacs around the country and launched an entire genre in publishing and licensing. Everybody went crazy.

“Neither cute nor mysterious but instead simply and irreverently, even raucously, very funny.”—Village Voice.

About the Author

B. Kliban's books include Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head, Whack Your Porcupine, Tiny Footprints, and Cat, the bestseller that launched a national cat craze.

I grew up with this book. You just can't understand this unless you're a true cat person. I just love it and want to pass a copy to every cat owner I know!
