'Macavity' (the mystery cat!) is one of the best-loved poems from T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats - the inspiration for Cats: The Musical - beloved by generations of children and their parents.

Now, Macavity is given a new life in this stunning picture book with illustrations from Arthur Robins that perfectly convey all the wit and humour of Eliot's creation.
To sit alongside other classics such as The Gruffalo, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, and Spot.
