Summary

Summary

Beautifully rendered charcoal and pencil sketches of cats illustrate this distinguished collection of stories, which celebrate, in high literary fashion, the enigma that is the cat. Illustrations add to the charm and take nothing away from these feline-inspired stories that are written by respected writers such as Mark Twain, P.G. Wodehouse, Damon Runyon, Doris Lessing, Rudyard Kipling, Emile Zola, and more. The combination is nothing less than a collectible discovery for fans of the literary cat.
