Advance praise for The Big New Yorker Book of Cats
“Covers, cartoons, authors of pieces both longer and shorter, reflect current views of the feline subject in all its glory. . . . The quality, humor and variety make for another successful New Yorker collection.”Kirkus Reviews

“An eminently giftable anthology.”Publishers Weekly

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:24:01 -0400)

Covers, cartoons, authors of pieces both longer and shorter, reflect current views of the feline subject in all its glory, and sometimes disgrace, as well as those of bygone days.
