T. S. Eliot’s Macavity – the mystery cat and most famous master-criminal cat of them all! – is brought to life by delightfully humorous illustrations from Arthur Robins, a timeless magical partnership.
We are temporarily only able to ship Faber Shop orders to addresses in the UK.
‘Macavity’ (the mystery cat!) is one of the best-loved poems from T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats – the inspiration for Cats: The Musical – beloved by generations of children and their parents.
Now, Macavity is given a new life in this stunning picture book with illustrations from Arthur Robins that perfectly convey all the wit and humour of Eliot’s creation.
To sit alongside other classics such as The Gruffalo, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, and Spot.
Arthur Robins' witty and robust illustrations bring Macavity up to date, delighting a new generation of readers.
And 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
The illustrations capture all the wickedness, it is lovely to be reminded of such a great poem
