LoveReading View on Jellicle Cats

A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month March 2017  T.S Eliot’s best-loved verses, originally published in an anthology, work brilliantly singly in this attractive series of picture books. In Jellicle Cats Arthur Robins captures the wit of the delightful nonsense at the heart of The Song of the Jellicles. How the Jellicle Cats celebrate at the Jellicle Ball when the Jellicle Moon comes out is delightfully demonstrated in his exuberant line illustrations. ~ Julia Eccleshare
