Age: picture book readers!
Macavity, Macavity, there’s no one like Macavity,
He’s broken every human law,
He breaks the law of gravity…
A celebration of the worlds most mischievous cat, featuring gloriously funny illustrations.
This fabulous cat is a fictional character who is described in a poem in Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, by T. S. Eliot. I knew this picture book was special; the size, colours, scope, and even the font add to the beauty of this picture book.
Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats is given new verve in this spectacular picture book.
Arthur Robbins illustrations perfectly convey all the charm, fun and wit and of Eliot’s creation. Macavity will be read by adults to children and it will be enjoyed by both, through all the multiple readings.
Many thanks to Faber & Faber for the review book.
