Drawing on the hugely successful The Necessary Cat, Nicola Bayley's gloriously individual, quirky homage to the feline race, The Curious Cat gathers all the younger aspects of this wonderful book to bring it to a new audience. Full of cat toys and plants; odd cat words and even odder cat facts; and cat lore and literature, including nursery rhymes and poems, this charming selection is geared towards junior readers. Reduced in size and beautifully redesigned, with a new cover, The Curious Cat celebrates the playful inquisitiveness of kittens and young cats, in illustrations displaying that exquisite miniaturist detail and sly sense of humour that distinguish this favourite artist's work.
Nicola Bayley has illustrated many acclaimed picture books including The Mousehole Cat (by Antonia Barber), which was chosen as the British Book Awards Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year in 1991. Nicola lives in London.More about Nicola Bayley
