A Curious Collection of Cats Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The quirky ways of cats are exquisitely captured in more than thirty original visual poems. From acrobat-flipping to toilet-bowl-sipping, couch-scratching to dog-catching, this insightful collection celebrates the fickle feline in ways that any cat lover will appreciate.

"Every cat lover in the universe ought to own this endearingly wacky collection of poems accompanied by purrfect art. It's an homage to burnish a coffee table...or freshen a litter box. Cats, as Betsy Franco knows, read too." --J. Patrick Lewis

"Step aside Mr. Eliot! Make room for Ms. Franco's fabulous cast of felines. This marriage of concrete poetry and art is one to pore and purr over again and again." --Lee Bennett HopkinsReviews“Cat lovers will recognize the standoffs with arching backs, the cozy touch of the “purrfect” scarf on their shoulders, and the tech-savvy cat who walks across the keyboard to add her own note to an e-mail to a friend.”—Booklist

Synopsis:

From acrobat-flipping to toilet-bowl-sipping, couch-scratching to dog-catching, this witty and delightful collection celebrates fickle felines and all things CAT.
