There are many things cats can do that children can't, such as lap up milk, leap double the length of their bodies, and use their tongues as combs. There are also a number of things that cats can't do, like sing children to sleep, or get down from trees . . . Abner Graboff combines the voice of childhood innocence with a wonderful sense of fun in his quirky book about the mysteries of cats and their secret lives, inspired by the Graboff family's own beloved cat Tarzan. Told from the point of view of a young child, this whimsical tale is complemented by Graboff's characteristically playful and bold illustrations.
Abner Graboff was a highly prolific artist and children's book illustrator, active from the 1950s to the 1970s.
