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.
