Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Cats: They wake you up at dawn, nap on your lap, perch on the book you're reading, and sometimes act as though they don't know you. They are a constant source of puzzlement—and joy. In this collection of poems, Dave Crawley pays tribute to the fabulous, finicky felines he has known and loved since childhood, capturing classic cat antics with affection and humor. Tamara Petrosino's watercolor illustrations amplify the humor and depict cats' expressions, postures, and mischievous ways as only a devoted cat owner could.
