    Me gusta mucho la poesía "seria y para adultos" de T.S. Eliot, y además me resulta imposible sustaerme al encanto de este libro para niños. Como amante de los gatos no puedo por menos que admirar cómo el autor refleja en ellos las características más "humanas", siempre con un aire de inocencia y humor que no tiene precio.

    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."
