A stunning new edition of T. S. Eliot''s beloved cat poemsOld Possum''s Book of Practical Cats, containing beautiful original colour illustrations by Axel Scheffler.

In 1981 Eliot''s poems were set to music by Andrew Lloyd Webber asCats which went on to become the longest-running Broadway musical in history.
