The Lovereading4Kids comment
July 2016 Book of the Month Young readers will love searching for the mischievous, mystery cat Macavity as they peek under the flaps to hunt for the cat who’s never there, following the clues until they discover the feisty feline himself. In Faber’s first lift-the-flap book, the beloved Macavity the Mystery Cat gets a brand new adventure.
Macavity's a ginger cat, he's very tall and thin;
You would know him if you saw him, for his eyes are sunken in.
He's ... Uh oh!
Macavity's not there!
Inspired by Eliot's classic, unforgettable rhyme and with wonderful illustrations by cartoonist and illustrator Arthur Robins, Macavity's not there! will be a delight to share and explore.

Macavity's a ginger cat, he's very tall and thin; You would know him if you saw him, for his eyes are sunken in. He's...Uh oh! Macavity's not there! Young readers will love searching for Macavity and searching for clues as he carries out his mischief. From the looted larder to the plundered jewel-case, the flaps will reveal a hilarious trail of cat-like destruction, leading delighted readers to The Mystery Cat himself. To sit alongside classic lift-the-flap books such as Where's Spot? and Dear Zoo.
Praise for other Old Possum books by Arthur Robins:
‘Arthur Robins' witty and robust illustrations bring Macavity up to date, delighting a new generation of readers.’
‘The very modern illustrations suggestive of familiar cartoon worlds, combined with Eliot’s genius, make it a book for all ages. Let us hope that there will be more from this partnership.’ Books for Keeps
