9780151686568: Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats

This classic book contains a lovely collection of poetry on cats originally written by T.S. Elliot for his godchildren and friends, and the loveable felines featured in this book were the basis for the well-known and extremely popular musical 'Cats'. This book would make an excellent addition to the bookshelf of any home. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Eliot throughout the English-speaking world.
