This is a charmingly illustrated and colourful book that will delight and amuse cat lovers and Shakespeare buffs alike. Margaret Woodhouse, author and illustrator of 'Know Your Cat's Purr Points' and '9 Life Habits Of Highly Effective Cats', uses her clever insights into feline behaviour to capture the spirit of Shakespeare's most rousing verses in cat form.
William Shakespeare saw the theatre in cats. Knowing their love of stealth tactics - "The cat, with eyne of burning coal, Now catches fore the mouse's hole" - and their talent for gripping their audience - "Tom will make them weep and wail" - Shakespeare penned some of his most magnificent words with the feline performer in mind.
Now, at last, this feline theatre is being brought alive on page. This book is a superb collection of transmogrification, and the witty illustrations that accompany Shakespeare's most rousing verses show just how gifted our moggy companions are.
