Puss in Books is a celebration of feline wit, intelligence, aloofness and charm as presented through cats in books, with examples from literature, folklore and popular culture. Feline references in books and manuscripts date from before 2000 BC in ancient Egypt, and since the introduction of cats to western households they have inspired writers and artists - from the scribe of the Lindisfarne Gospels to poets of the present day. This selection includes nursery rhymes (Hey Diddle Diddle and Ding Dong Bell); poetry by Thomas Gray (Ode on the Death of a Favourite Cat Drowned in a Tub of Gold Fishes) and T S Eliot (Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats); cats in fiction by Rudyard Kipling, Lewis Carroll and Charles Dickens; current characters such as Splat the Cat, and of course the ubiquitous Puss in Boots himself. Wonderfully illustrated in colour throughout, this is an ideal gift for every cat lover.
