Published posthumously, Le Cain's ( Growltiger's Last Stand &Other Poems ) last book proves a rousing finale. Mr. Mistoffelees, themagical conjuring cat, is among the liveliest and most winsome of allof Eliot's felines. As rendered here, he is a majestic and beguilingfigure indeed, with Cheshire-like, glinting eyes, a playing-cardcollar, a magnificent midnight-blue cape displaying the moon and starsand an irresistible aura of intrigue, cunning andself-satisfaction. The cat-burglars Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazerprovide a fitting second act, ingenious and even mysterious in theirown rough-and-tumble way. Throughout, Le Cain not only captures awondrous range of expressions but indulges his considerable fancy forextravagant, whimsical patterns. The result is a visually rich bookthat celebrates Eliot's verbal acrobatics and contributes a few capersof its own. All ages.
