About the Author:

Thomas Stearns Eliot was born in St Louis, Missouri, in 1888. He came to England in 1914 and published his first book of poems in 1917. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948. Eliot died in 1965.

Arthur Robins is a renowned cartoonist and illustrator of over fifty books, including What Use is a Moose?, Bertie was a Watchdog, and The Amazing Adventures of Chilly Billy, as well as the enormously popular series Seriously Silly Stories.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2—Children and poetry lovers alike will delight in this picture book adaptation of Eliot's famous rhyming poem. Although Macavity the cat burglar often leaves behind a trail of fish bones and paw prints, he proves to be too elusive to capture. Milk and jewels are some of the feline's favorite items to snatch, much to the chagrin of the canines of Scotland Yard. Robins brings the feline to life with his whimsical watercolor drawings paired with a hand-drawn text. A paw or tail can be found escaping at the edge of every crime scene; however, children will delight in finding (and repeating aloud) that "Macavity's not there!" VERDICT This joyful read-aloud will make a fine introduction to young children who are learning about famous authors and poetry.—Maria Alegre, The Dalton School, New York City
