Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats
by T.S. Eliot
Every kid needs to meet Magical Mister Mistoffelees! T. S. Eliot’s playful cat poems have delighted readers and cat lovers around the world ever since they were first published in 1939. They were originally composed for his godchildren, with Eliot posing as Old Possum himself, and later inspired the legendary musical Cats. Meet Mr. Mistoffelees, Growltiger, the Rum Tum Tugger, Macavity the mystery cat, and many other memorable strays. Even if you’re not a cat-lover, you’ll love this fun book of poetry for kids of all ages. Read the book, then encourage your kids to stage their own theatrical production. Or maybe they'll be inspired to write their own poems about the family cat!
