Grade 6 Up Three poems from Eliot's rollicking ode to felines, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats (HBJ, 1939), are gloriously and elegantly illustrated by Le Cain. ``Growltiger's Last Stand,'' ``Of the Awefull Battle of the Pekes and Pollicles,'' and ``The Song of the Jellicles'' spring to life with Le Cain's stylish paintings that match and extend each verse of the rich text. Sinister Siamese arranged in triangles represent Growltiger's foe ``armed with toasting forks and cruel carving knives''; chaos reigns as the Pugs and Poms ``Bark bark bark bark/ Bark bark BARK BARK/ Until you can hear them all over the Park''; suave black-and-white cats ``like to practice their airs and graces/ And wait for the Jellicle Moon to rise.'' The clean typeface and layout make Eliot's poetry take center stage framed by the wonderful illustrations. The book is a worthy introduction to a major poet's work and should lead readers on to the complete volume. It will certainly create memories of its own.
