About this title


Classic poems about cats are matched with works of art from the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3 Up-This playful compendium of poetry and fine art is sure to tickle every feline fanatic's fancy. The collection contains something for everyone, from nursery rhymes to Christopher Smart's elegiac 18th-century paean, "Jubilate Agno." Some selections are familiar, like William Blake's "The Tyger" and Edward Lear's "The Owl and the Pussy-cat," while others are less well known. A variety of styles and cultures are represented in the artwork and poetry. Some poems are paired with their original illustrations, such as a Kate Greenaway's woodcut for John Ruskin's "Dame Wiggins of Lee-," while other groupings cross cultural borders and vast spans of time, such as an ancient Egyptian bronze statue with modern Chilean poet Pablo Neruda's "Ode to the Cat." The book is well designed, with Th?ophile-Alexandre Steinlen's amusing cat cartoons on the endpapers. Choose favorites from this volume and Alice Schertle's I Am the Cat (Lothrop, 1999) to enliven a popular storytime theme. Mandatory for all cat lovers, and "purrfect" for one-on-one sharing.
