Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats

I can't even begin to describe how excited I am to have come across this book! The writing by T.S. Eliot is a complete thrill, the pictures by Edward Gorey fantastic! I will be carrying this book around with me everywhere I go for the next couple of days, reading and re-reading, aloud and to myself, until Tom can't bare to hear me recite the virtues of the Jellicle cats or the antics of Jennyanydots or Skimbleshanks the railway cat any longer! SO glad to know that a book as fun and whimsical as this still exists, there needs to be more!
