Book Description
Cats! Some are sane, some are mad and some are good and some are bad. Meet magical Mr Mistoffelees, sleepy Old Deuteronomy and curious Rum Tum Tugger. But you'll be lucky to meet Macavity because Macavity's not there! In 1925, T.S. Eliot became co-director of Faber and Faber, who remain his publishers to this day. Throughout the 1930s he composed the now famous poems about Macavity, Old Deuteronomy, Mr Mistoffelees and many other cats, under the name of 'Old Possum'. In 1981, Eliot's poems were set to music by Andrew Lloyd Webber as "Cats" which went on to become the longest-running Broadway musical in history. This charming new edition contains original colour illustrations by the award-winning illustrator of "The Gruffalo", Axel Scheffler.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book on a late Sunday morning in bed. Ginny and I went to see Cats without having read this beforehand. We didn't know what to expect. The show would have been even better had we read Old Possom's Book of Pratical Cats before. It's very interesting to see how the book had been adapted for the stage. It's fanciful.

    "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" is a set of whimsical poems by T. S. Eliot about feline psychology and sociology and the work inspired the story for Andrew Llyod Webber's one of the longest-running musical "Cats."
