Cats' Tales From Shakespeare

 
9780007146031: Cats' Tales From Shakespeare

Margaret Woodhouse, much-loved author and illustrator of Know Your Cat's Purr Points, uses her clever insights into feline behaviour to capture the spirit of Shakespeare's most rousing verses in cat form. This is a charmingly illustrated and colourful book that will delight and amuse cat lovers and Shakespeare buffs alike.

William Shakespeare saw the theatre in cats. Knowing their love of stealth tactics – 'The cat, with eyne of burning coal, Now couches fore the mouse's hole' – and their talent for gripping their audience – 'Tom will make them weep and wail' – Shakespeare penned some of his most magnificent words with the feline performer in mind.

Now, at last, this feline theatre is being brought alive on page. Cats' Tales from Shakespeare is a superb collection of transmogrifications, and the witty illustrations that accompany Shakespeare's most rousing verses show just how gifted our moggy companions are.
