Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot

Ages 10+EliotCatscover

Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot is the book on which the Broadway musical “Cats” is based. Having not seen “Cats” since I was a little girl, I hadn’t realized this until I read the jacket cover. Even so, the poems are a lot of fun to read and to read while listening to the “Cats” soundtrack, although the words aren’t exactly the same. It was quite entertaining to read the stories of the cats that Eliot supposedly based on lives of those he knew. I would recommend this book of poems for readers of all ages!
