Synopsis

Thomas Gray in Copenhagen In Which the Philosopher Cat Meets the Ghost of Hans Christian Andersen by P.J. Davis

A sequel to the widely successful Thomas Gray, Philosopher Cat, Philip J. Davis' latest continues the adventures of the internationally popular feline and friend. Could it be that Hans Christian Andersen - who wrote so lovingly of inchworms and ugly ducklings - was an unrepentant despiser of cats? That's the rumor that the philosophical feline, Thomas Gray, and cohort, Cambridge don Lucas Fysst, (whose last name doesn't rhyme with fist ) are determined to snuff out. In Copenhagen to attend a philosophers' convention, they go on the hunt for a missing Andersen manuscript that will set the record straight. A whimsically written and illustrated tale - part history, part parody, and all fun. Davis is Professor Emeritus of Applied Mathematics at Brown University and author of No Way: Essays on the Impossible.

Reviews

A thoughtful, measured, relaxed mix of fact and fantasy. Thomas Gray is the kind of cat that spends its mornings hunting rabbits and its afternoons pawing over palimpsests. You should make her acquaintance, she will enrich your life. Ian Stewart, New Scientist, on Thomas Gray, Philosopher Cat
