Über diesen Titel
Yes the Rum Tum Tugger is a
Curious Cat --
And there isn't any call for
me to shout it:
For he will do
As he do do
And there's no doing
anything about it!
The catchy, words of Nobel laureate T. S. Eliot perfectly capture why we're so captivated by those fabulous felines. And in this charming collection, illustrated with works from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, cats come to tea, lose their mittens, go to London to look at the queen, go to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat, and generally do as they "do do," in art and poetry. Poems by classic writers, including Emily Dickinson, William Blake, Vikram Seth, Kate Greenaway, Langston Hughes, and William Carlos Williams, are paired with cat images from around the world, including a court painting by Goya, a Currier & Ives lithograph, a Chinese hanging scroll, an ancient Egyptian figurine, an Arthur Rackham illustration, and a cabaret poster by Toulouse-Lautrec. Children and cat-lovers of all ages will enjoy meeting each one of these curious cats.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3 Up-This playful compendium of poetry and fine art is sure to tickle every feline fanatic's fancy. The collection contains something for everyone, from nursery rhymes to Christopher Smart's elegiac 18th-century paean, "Jubilate Agno." Some selections are familiar, like William Blake's "The Tyger" and Edward Lear's "The Owl and the Pussy-cat," while others are less well known. A variety of styles and cultures are represented in the artwork and poetry. Some poems are paired with their original illustrations, such as a Kate Greenaway's woodcut for John Ruskin's "Dame Wiggins of Lee-," while other groupings cross cultural borders and vast spans of time, such as an ancient Egyptian bronze statue with modern Chilean poet Pablo Neruda's "Ode to the Cat." The book is well designed, with Th?ophile-Alexandre Steinlen's amusing cat cartoons on the endpapers. Choose favorites from this volume and Alice Schertle's I Am the Cat (Lothrop, 1999) to enliven a popular storytime theme. Mandatory for all cat lovers, and "purrfect" for one-on-one sharing.
