Review:
Arthur Robins' witty and robust illustrations bring Macavity up to date, delighting a new generation of readers., Guardian

It is (Arthur Robins') illustrations that make Eliot's superb poetry accessible for younger children. Ideal for reading aloud, the meaning is clear even where the vocabulary is sophisticated. The colourful and cartoon-like drawings have plenty of detail and added humour., Scotsman

The illustrations capture all the wickedness, it is lovely to be reminded of such a great poem., Angels and Urchins

This is a very welcome addition to any bookshelf, whether library or at home. The picture book format ensures it will appeal to the youngest as it should. However, the very modern illustrations suggestive of familiar cartoon worlds, combined with Eliot's genius, make it a book for all ages. Let us hope that there will be more from this partnership. -- Books for Keeps

The choice of Arthur Robins to illustrate the poem was another touch of genius, he can imbue such character into his comic creations - the suspect's line up of cats, for example, is hilarious...I am sure this will prove popular as a picturebook in its own right, but it is certainly a joyous introduction to the poetry of T.S.Eliot., Reading Zone

The slippery exploits of Macavity, just one of the much-loved cats from the classic Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, is vividly captured in the cheerful illustrations in this picture-book version., LoveReading

You'd expect great rhymes from Mr Eliot - and Arthur Robins' brilliant wobbly illustrations bring Macavity to life., Read it Daddy!

The illustrations in this edition are funny and bring an extra dimension to an already thoroughly entertaining read. Don't keep this one just for the children - share it with cat lovers, poetry buffs and the whole family. You can even have a giggle on your own., The Bookbag

Arthur Robbins illustrations perfectly convey all the charm, fun and wit and of Eliot's creation. Macavity will be read by adults to children and it will be enjoyed by both, through all the multiple readings., Teacher Moloney King

It's rare that a poem not meant for a picture book translates so smoothly into the form, but "Macavity" does, coming in at the perfect length and with ample opportunity for illustrations to help build out the story., New York Times
Review:
"It's rare that a poem not meant for a picture book translates so smoothly into the form, but Macavity does, coming in at the perfect length with ample opportunity for illustrations to help build out the story. . . .Like Eliot's verses, [Robins's illustrations] present a world of mischief and hilarity."The New York Times

"Robins has infused new life into the trickster cat." --Kirkus Reviews
