  • "Cats! Some are sane, some are mad and some are good and some are bad. Meet magical Mr Mistoffelees, sleepy Old Deuteronomy and curious Rum Tum Tugger. But you'll be lucky to meet Macavity because Macavity's not there! In 1925, T.S. Eliot became co-director of Faber and Faber, who remain his publishers to this day. Throughout the 1930s he composed the now famous poems about Macavity, Old Deuteronomy, Mr Mistoffelees and many other cats, under the name of 'Old Possum'. In 1981, Eliot's poems were set to music by Andrew Lloyd Webber as "Cats" which went on to become the longest-running Broadway musical in history. This charming new edition contains original colour illustrations by the award-winning illustrator of "The Gruffalo", Axel Scheffler."

  • "Katzengedichte: Old Possums Katzenbuch ist eine Sammlung von Katzengedichten für Kinder und Erwachsene. T.S. Eliott schreibt über den Charakter von Katzen im Allgemeinen sowie über die Art einer jeden einzelnen. Im Buch zu finden sind unter anderem Gedichte über Grimmtiger, Rem Tem Tecker, der nur das macht, was er will und über Rumpelmauser und Rattenschreck, die in der ganzen Stadt für Unordnung sorgen. Dazu wird in den Gedichten erklärt, wie man Katzen zu begrüssen hat oder wie sie heissen. Das Buch enthält nebst den zahlreichen Gedichten viele farbige Illustrationen, welche den Inhalt der Gedichte unterstreichen. Die Texte können Anregungen für Schreibanlässe in der Schule bieten. Nicht alle sind jedoch für Kinder gut verständlich, da die Sprache eher den Erwartungen Erwachsener entspricht. Alles in allem ist Old Possums Katzenbuch aber ein gelungenes Werk, welches auch als Vorlage für das erfolgreiche Musical "Cats" diente. Ab 10 Jahren, ***, Selina Streiff."

As Valerie Eliot has pointed out, there are a number of references to cats in T.S. Eliot's work, but it was to his godchildren, particularly Tom Faber and Alison Tandy, in the 1930s, that he first revealed himself as "Old Possum" and for whom he composed his poems."
