An excellent stocking present for cat lovers of any age. A magical combination of poem and illustration presented well as a pleasing, small, full-colour hardback. Perfect - or should I say purrfect? (Carousel)

A prefect gift of a cat lover, whatever their age! (Your Cat)

About the Author

Eleanor Farjeon came from a family of famous people – her father was a novelist, her grandfather an actor and her three brothers became well known as composers, novelists and producers. Her first book was published in 1916, a collection of poems called Nursery Rhymes of London Town. Her next book Martin Pippin in the Apple Orchard made her famous as a writer for children. After her death in 1965 the Eleanor Farjeon award was set up in her memory, to give recognition to outstanding figures in the world of children's books.

Anne Mortimer is recognised as one of the finest contemporary painters of cats. She is a member of the Society of Botanical Artists and of the Royal Miniature Society, from whom she received an honourable mention for the most outstanding miniature of the year. She lives in Dartmouth, Devon.

I remember fondly the poem by Eleanor Farjeon from my childhood and was delighted to find this book on Amazon. It is delightful. I bought it for my great nephew, who is 2 and loves cats, he is thrilled with it and treats it with great care.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful cats 15 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The illustrations of cats and background are beautiful and very detailed My only regret is
that the book is smaller than expected. A lovely gift for a child or any adult cat lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a classic 6 Nov 2009
I bought this lovely, beautifully illustrated poem for my daughter when she was one. She is now ten, and has only just decided to part with it, with a lot of heartsearching, and only because she could pass it on to my new great-nephew, who is two, so he can love as much as she did. A truly charming, gentle and adorable book.
