T. S. Eliot--Thomas Stearns Eliot 1888-1965

This book was borrowed from the library for the purpose of reading/reviewing.

This is a delish book about cats and their ticklish quirky names and lives. The book is written as funny poems dedicated to cats. It is fun to read, especially aloud. I'd found this book by accident browsing through the library last week. It is exciting to know this book was the basis for the long running musical Cats!
There are several chapters and each of them are short. The illustrations by Axel Scheffler are vibrant and exciting.

Blissful Reading!
