T. S. Eliot’s playful cat poems have delighted readers and cat lovers around the world ever since they were first published in 1939. They were originally composed for his godchildren, with Eliot posing as Old Possum himself, and later inspired the legendary musical Cats. Now with vibrant illustrations by the award-winning Axel Scheffler, this captivating edition makes a wonderful new home for Mr. Mistoffelees, Growltiger, the Rum Tum Tugger, Macavity the mystery cat, and many other memorable strays. It’s the perfect complement to the beloved previous edition, which remains available.

Andrew Lloyd Webber had a brilliant decision to turn this cute book into a smash Broadway musical. As soon as I found out that this book was the inspiration, I had to read it! I didn't realize that it's a book of poetry and I normally wouldn't even bother but the poems are really cute as are the cute drawings of cats. The poems are cute and sweet and it was a quick, enjoyable read. If you've seen "Cats" even once, I dare you to read this without breaking into.song! On second thought it should be required! =)
