Synopsis

Mr Mistoffelees by T. S. Eliot

Was there ever A cat so clever As magical Mr. Mistoffelees! Following Arthur Robins' critically acclaimed picture book of Macavity, he turns his attentions to the magical Mr. Mistoffelees with delightfully hilarious results. Perfect for ages 3+, children (and parents) will love reading aloud about the Original Conjuring Cat. A highlight of our new picture book list. Reviews for Macavity (already sold 10k copies and reprinted since March): Arthur Robins' witty and robust illustrations bring Macavity up to date, delighting a new generation of readers . (Guardian). And it is (Arthur Robins') illustrations that make Eliot's superb poetry accessible for younger children. Ideal for reading aloud, the meaning is clear even where the vocabulary is sophisticated. The colourful and cartoon - like drawings have plenty of detail and added humour . (Scotsman).

About the Author

T. S. Eliot

Thomas Stearns Eliot (1888-1965) was born in St. Louis, Missouri, of an old New England family. He was educated at Harvard and did graduate work in philosophy at the Sorbonne, Harvard, and Merton College, Oxford. He settled in England in 1915, where he was for a time a schoolmaster and a bank clerk, and eventually literary editor for the publishing house Faber & Faber, of which he later became a director.

He published his first book of poems in 1917.

He founded and, during the seventeen years of its publication (1922-1939), edited the exclusive and influential literary journal Criterion. In 1927, Eliot became a British citizen and about the same time entered the Anglican Church.

Eliot received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948.
