Review:

Did you know that white cats are usually deaf? Or that when a cat is frightened it sweats through its feet? Or that ancient Egyptians shaved off their eyebrows to mourn the death of a cat? Any self-respecting cat lover will be delighted to discover these feline facts and more in Nicola Bayley's The Necessary Cat, a lovely, old-fashioned tribute to cats and kittens of all varieties. Exquisitely detailed, whimsical illustrations in diverse styles highlight Bayley's scrapbook-like collection of old-fashioned cat toys (and new ones, too!); cat stats; cat lore; cat poems by such luminaries as William Wordsworth, W.B. Yeats, and Walter de la Mare; cat words; and famous cats and their infamous feats. Feline fanciers of all ages will enjoy pawing through this delightful album--dare we say it's the cat's meow?

REVIEWS
"This is a book to be owned and treasured, but equally to be pored over on a comfortable cushion in the primary school book corner or library...It is not only a celebration of cats, it is a festival of lovely words, pictures and good book production." THE SCHOOL LIBRARIAN "The book looks gorgeous and includes some top-class poetry." YORKSHIRE POST "Nicola Bayley has complied an enchanting anthology of words and pictures about her favourite animal...It might be intended for children, but adults might want to get their paws on it too!" LINCOLNSHIRE DAILY ECHO "The illustrations make this an exceptionally elegant book that cat-lovers of all ages will treasure." GOOD BOOK GUIDE
