Read full description of the books:
In going through books I’ve read to add to Goodreads, I’m rediscovering some great ones. I reread this one of 42 children’s book illustrators who tell stories about their cats complete with illustrations. Although I think most of them are great my two favorites are: Diane Stanley who tells about a stray cat who has kittens in her laundry room and then moves the kittens behind the books in her bookcase, saying “Like a wise mother, she just thought an early exposure to books would be good for them” The illustration is priceless. And Tom Wharton who discovered his cat Rosebud reads because she began sitting on whatever he was reading. To be able to read in peace, he starting choosing obvious books for her like “Puss in Boots” and “Moby Dick,” but then learned she’ll read anything. He ends with: “For the past year and a half, she’s been reading ‘Gone with the Wind.’ It sits open on a chair near the radiator so she can read whenever she’s in the mood. Every few days I turn the page for her.” Each page of this book is as varied as the artists and their cats, and all are delightful. I love this book!
