Product Information

The most famous master criminal cat of them all is brought to life by delightfully humorous illustrations from Arthur Robins.

"It's rare that a poem not meant for a picture book translates so smoothly into the form, but Macavity does, coming in at the perfect length with ample opportunity for illustrations to help build out the story. . . .Like Eliot's verses, [Robins's illustrations] present a world of mischief and hilarity."The New York Times "Robins has infused new life into the trickster cat." --Kirkus Reviews
