The Mystery Cat

Publisher: Faber Children's Books

Escaped from Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, Macavity is now the star of his own picture book. With new illustrations from Arthur Robins, this timeless rhyme will charm a new generation. Macavity is a dastardly criminal, he's got the police chasing their tails, and the rest of the world wondering how he does it - 'For when they reach the scene of the crime - Macavity's not there!'

Children will love shouting out this joyous refrain as Macavity evades the law time and time again. The bounding rhythm should make even the odd dated word or reference manageable and the scratchy illustration style perfectly suits our uncombed anti-hero. As the hapless police dog scours the pages for clues, Macavity makes more mischief that will entertain and delight. Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity…
