Cats are sleek, and cats are slick. They read, and do arithmetic!

Have you ever seen a cat playing a piano? Or taking a bubble bath with a rubber duck? Find out what cats really get up to when people aren't around! Axel Scheffler's charming and witty illustrations introduce all kinds of cats – making mischief, playing games, singing songs and out on adventures. This collection of hilarious, quirky poems by Frantz Wittkamp are wonderfully adapted from German to English for the very first time by celebrated children's author David Henry Wilson.

With 14 delightfully funny short poems, and full-page colour illustrations by the bestselling illustrator of The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, Zog and many more, this collection is sure to entertain children young and old, and is the perfect gift for any cat fan.
