Inside Book:

"Fun, fanciful, and even informative." —People The first comprehensive history of felines—from the laps of pagan gods to present-day status as meme stars—as revealed by a very learned tabby with a knack for hunting down facts Since the dawn of civilization, felines have prowled alongside mankind as they expanded their territory and spread the myth of human greatness. And today, cats are peddled on social media as silly creatures here to amuse humans with their antics. But this is an absurd, self-centered fantasy. The true history of felines is one of heroism, love, tragedy, sacrifice, and gravitas. Not entirely convinced? Well, get ready, because Baba the Cat is here to set the record straight. Spanning almost every continent and thousands—yes, thousands—of years, Baba’s complex story of feline survival presents readers with a diverse cast of cats long forgotten: from her prehistoric feline ancestors and the ancient Egyptian cat goddess Bastet to the daring mariners at the height of oceanic discovery, key intellectuals in the Enlightenment period, revered heroes from World Wars I and II, and the infamous American tabbies. Baba, a talented model in addition to a scholar, goes beyond surface-level scratches, pairing her freshly unearthed research with a series of stunning costume portraits to bring history to life. A paws-on journey through the feline hall of fame, with in-depth research and four-legged testaments that will make you rethink who defines history, A Cat’s Tale is a one-of-a-kind chronicle that introduces readers to the illustrious ancestors of their closest companions and shows, once and for all, that cats know exactly what they’re doing.

A vibrant, heartwarming graphic novel about two irresistible cat friends on a journey to find their forever home—a journey inspired by the magic of art and storytelling. Cilla and Betto are two friends who need a place to call home. The docks in Valletta are too wet, and the scraps of food too scarce. The city’s streets are too busy, and the humans too unreliable. But what about the quiet garden from old kitten tales—a place where all cats are welcome, and the humans are always kind? Could the stories really be true? As Cilla and Betto embark on a grand adventure to find out, they begin to spin a tale of their own—one that will take them through the art and stories of many journeyers who came before, and that will bring them to a surprising destination.

Book Summary:

The moment you meet Stray, you're anxious to know what happens next. Troas Alexander has written in a sequence of events that hold the reader's attention and will have children laughing as they learn. A Cat's Tale provides a great opportunity for adults to teach children about making the right choices. This is such an entertaining way to teach moral and ethical values to children. -Loretta A. Reid, M.Ed, M.Div., D .Min, Educator and Minister Troas Alexander has the ability to make the story come alive as she describes the adventures and challenges of the main character, Stray. The author's sense of humor makes this story a fast read because it is a fun story. Troas Alexander's A Cat's Tale encourages children to form positive character - building traits by seeing the effects of the main character's negative choices. A wide array of teaching activities may be developed from this story. -Gayles E. Evans, Ph.D., Assistant Professor Facilitator, Advisor, Library Information and Media Studies, Chicago State University A Cat's Tale treats the concept of the after-life in an honest and understandable manner. This story will help children understand the necessity of making wise choices. A Cat's Tale also teaches the value of friendship, home and family. Troas Alexander has presented a story that can be used as a tool to help children learn to follow rules. - Reverend Lucille Lewis Jackson, M.A. Ed, Reading Specialist Troas Alexander's A Cat's Tale delightfully presents a lesson of responsibility and consequences parents often attempt to teach to children. I'm sure children who are read to, or even older children who can read the story independently can relate to" wanting to do what they want, regardless of others." Young children who are accustomed to animated movies with animals will be drawn in by the adventures (or rather misadventures) of this willful cat. Troas Alexander's descriptions of living in" HY-Dees" and the characters there were priceless. A Cat's Tale will cause many children to reflect on their own attitude and behavior relative to responsibility. The story brings smiles and chuckles. The characters and their names are colorfully depicted. Troas Alexander shows that lessons to be learned CAN be presented with humor and non-threateningly. Some children (and adults) have lessons to learn, particularly in today's "me" culture. - Audrey B. Gilliam, Ed. D., Elementary School Educator Troas Alexander presents a delightful, entertaining experience through A Cat's Tale. The characters are exciting, creative and realistic. The author excels in giving the reader's imagination a real workout. This story causes children to reflect upon their own views and actions relative to assuming responsibility, following rules, and treating others with respect and kindness. This is an excellent book to stimulate conversation between parent and child, as well as teacher and student. Although written for children, adults too, can relate to the sense of morality and ethics to which the book alludes. -Evonne F. Blakey, Ph.D. Professor of Early Childhood and Elementary Education (retired), Chicago State University Troas Alexander's A Cat's Tale is a story that provides suspense, laughter and sheer entertainment. The excitement builds to a shocking crescendo with the surprise ending-it catches the reader off-guard. The story is interesting, enjoyable and provokes deeper thought to one's choices and life's outcomes. With or without illustrations, I believe that children's attention and imagination will be challenged. -Reverend Esther J. Mitchell, Administrator/Principal, J.W. James Memorial Christian Academy

Book Summary:

Controversial painter Elaine Risley returns from Vancouver for a retrospective of her work. Here, in Toronto, the city of her youth, she confronts the submerged layers of her past – her unconventional family, her eccentric and brilliant brother, the self-righteous Mrs. Smeath, and the two men Elaine later came to love in diverse and sometimes disastrous ways. But it is the enigmatic Cordelia, once her tormentor, then her best friend, whose elusive yet powerful presence in her life Elaine finally comes to understand. The realm of childhood and growing up, with its secrecies, cruelties, betrayals, and terrors, has never been so brilliantly evoked. By turns disquieting, humorous, compassionate, haunting and mordant, Cat’s Eye is vintage Atwood.

Have you ever wanted to travel the King’s Highway in Jordan and walk down the famous Siq Gorge to the ancient city of Petra? Or wanted to spend an Orthodox Christmas in Bethlehem? Wondered how you would feel if stuck with a flat tyre in the middle of the Sudanese desert at sunrise? Or pondered about the Call to Prayer as it echoes repeatedly across Istanbul at sunset? Have you ever wondered how so many people live and survive in the Middle East without the rules and regulations of western building, working, and plumbing? Meet Shazam the Jordanian taxi driver, the boys in the Sea of Shoeshine, Mr Ali and his famous Green Door Pizza in Jerusalem, Russell from Noosa, and the Great Paperweights of Giza as you travel on a journey of adventure, mishaps, revelations, architectural wonders, and lack of plumbing, though Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Turkey. And don’t forget the Cats of Istanbul, the Cairo Cat Shop, and Camel School and the Art of Haggling . In 1997, architect Mahalath Halperin, together with her colleague and his wife, Peter and Pauline Buckwell, spent four crazy weeks travelling by plane, train, and automobile throughout the Middle East on a journey to discover architecture, culture, and of course, plumbing. And they found lots of cats along the way. This is the story of that adventure.

Book Summary:

ONCE IN NINE LIVES, SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY HAPPENS. The last thing Gwen Cooper wanted was another cat. She already had two, not to mention a phenomenally underpaying job and a recently broken heart. Then Gwen’s veterinarian called with a story about a three-week-old eyeless kitten who’d been abandoned. It was love at first sight. Everyone warned that Homer would always be an “underachiever.” But the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo with a giant heart who eagerly made friends with every human who crossed his path. Homer scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease, survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwen’s life when he chased off an intruder who broke into their home in the middle of the night. But it was Homer’s unswerving loyalty, his infinite capacity for love, and his joy in the face of all obstacles that transformed Gwen’s life. And by the time she met the man she would marry, she realized that Homer had taught her the most valuable lesson of all: Love isn’t something you see with your eyes. BONUS: This edition contains a new afterword and an excerpt from Gwen Cooper's Love Saves the Day.

Book Summary:

Our feline companions are much-loved but often mysterious. In The Inner Life of Cats, Thomas McNamee blends scientific reportage with engaging, illustrative anecdotes about his own beloved cat, Augusta, to explore and illuminate the secrets and enigmas of her kind. As it begins, The Inner Life of Cats follows the development of the young Augusta while simultaneously explaining the basics of a kitten's physiological and psychological development. As the narrative progresses, McNamee also charts cats' evolution, explores a feral cat colony in Rome, tells the story of Augusta's life and adventures, and consults with behavioral experts, animal activists, and researchers, who will help readers more fully understand cats. McNamee shows that with deeper knowledge of cats' developmental phases and individual idiosyncrasies, we can do a better job of guiding cats' maturation and improving the quality of their lives. Readers' relationships with their feline friends will be happier and more harmonious because of this book.

There are a million cat stories in the naked city. This is one of them . . . There are days when everything seems to go wrong—days that can crack even the hardiest New Yorker: your cab breaks down, an address that Google Maps assures you exists is nowhere to be found, nobody you ask for directions has any idea what you're talking about, you lose your cell phone, it starts to rain and you can't find your umbrella . . . Throw in trying to get three fussy felines to their first appointment with a new vet on time, and that's the day Gwen Cooper is having. As she treks the streets of Manhattan with her three cranky (and surprisingly heavy!) cats in tow, the real question isn't if she'll make it to the vet's office on schedule—it's whether her sanity will still be intact by the time she gets there. A hilarious account of one long day's wacky adventures and misadventures, "Cat Carrier Tango" is the fourth installment in the Curl Up with a Cat Tale monthly story series from Gwen Cooper, author of the smash hit Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale. Meant to be read in a warm bubble bath, or with a glass of wine in hand, it's sure to keep you laughing from start to finish!

Book Summary:

A remarkable and thought-provoking new novel set on Israel’s West Bank, by the author of The Breadwinner. On Israel’s West Bank, a cat sneaks into a small Palestinian house that has just been commandeered by two Israeli soldiers. The house seems empty, until the cat realizes that a little boy is hiding beneath the floorboards. Should she help him? After all, she’s just a cat. Or is she? It turns out that this particular cat is not used to thinking about anyone but herself. She was once a regular North American girl who only had to deal with normal middle-school problems — staying under the teachers’ radar, bullying her sister and the uncool kids at school, outsmarting her clueless parents. But that was before she died and came back to life as a cat, in a place with a whole different set of rules for survival. When the little boy is discovered, the soldiers don’t know what to do with him. Where are the child’s parents? Why has he been left alone in the house? It is not long before his teacher and classmates come looking for him, and the house is suddenly surrounded by Palestinian villagers throwing rocks, and the sound of Israeli tanks approaching. Not my business, thinks the cat. And then she sees a photograph, and suddenly she understands what happened to the boy’s parents, and why they have not returned. And as the soldiers begin to panic, and disaster seems certain, she knows that it is up to her to diffuse the situation. But what can a cat do? What can any one creature do?

Book Summary:

The first-ever U.S. edition of this delightful gem based on a letter Joyce wrote to his grandson, revealing the modernist master’s playful side—filled with one-of-a-kind illustrations—the perfect gift for Joyce fans and cat lovers alike. The Cats of Copenhagen was first written for James Joyce’s most beloved audience, his only grandson, Stephen James Joyce, and sent in a letter dated September 5, 1936. Cats were clearly a common currency between Joyce and his grandson. In early August 1936, Joyce sent Stephen “a little cat filled with sweets”—a kind of Trojan cat meant to outwit grown-ups. A few weeks later, Joyce penned a letter from Copenhagen that begins “Alas! I cannot send you a Copenhagen cat because there are no cats in Copenhagen.” The letter reveals the modernist master at his most playful, yet Joyce’s Copenhagen has a keen, anti-authoritarian quality that transcends the mere whimsy of a children’s story. Only recently rediscovered, this marks the inaugural U.S. publication of The Cats of Copenhagen, a treasure for readers of all ages. A rare addition to Joyce’s known body of work, it is a joy to see this exquisite story in print at last.

Book Summary:

Ray Bradbury is, indisputably, one of America's greatest storytellers. The recipient of the 2000 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, he ranks among the most beloved -- and widely read -- of American authors. In The Cat's Pajamas, this "latter-day O. Henry" (Booklist) takes us on an amazing walk through his six-decade career, presenting twenty-two tales -- some old, some new, all but two never before published. Here you will find stories strange and scary, nostalgic and bittersweet, humorous and heart-touching, ranging from the not-so-long-gone past to an unknowable future: a group of senators drinks a bit too much -- and gambles away the United States; a newlywed couple buys an old house and finds their fledgling relationship tested; two mysterious strangers arrive at a rooming house and baffle their fellow occupants with strange crying in the night; a lonely woman takes a last chance on love. The final piece in the collection is a story-poem, a fond salute from Bradbury to his literary heroes Shaw, Chesterton, Dickens, Twain, Poe, Wilde, Melville, and Kipling. The Cat's Pajamas is just that -- the bee's knees -- a touching, timeless, and tender collection from the incomparable Ray Bradbury, and a anoramic view of an amazingly long, rich, and fertile creative career.

Some cats have "accidents" on rugs or furniture. This wily cat raises outside-the-litter-box thinking to an art form! Vashti was a drop-dead gorgeous, snow-white rescue cat whose sweet temper and gentle nature made her irresistible to all. But behind this femme fatale's angelic façade lurked a crafty feline mind and a steely determination to retain sole possession of the person she loved most—by any means necessary. Vashti's challenging, creative spirit would leave its mark on her human's heart as the years went by—and also on the furniture, clothing, and cherished belongings of the friends and boyfriends she viewed as competition for her "mom's" affections. Along the way, Vashti would teach her human mom what true love looks like: rare, beautiful, and more than a little messy. A riotously funny and ultimately tender exploration of the ineffable bonds between human and feline, "The Picasso of Pee" is the latest entry from the Curl Up with a Cat Tale series—true-life short stories from Gwen Cooper, bestselling author of the smash hit Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale. It's the purr-fect read for anyone who knows what it means to love a cat unconditionally, and to be loved wholeheartedly in return.

Book Summary:

Japan's beloved literary masterpiece brought to life in manga form! Soseki Natsume's comic masterpiece, I Am a Cat, satirizes the foolishness of upper-middle-class Japanese society in early 20th century Tokyo. Written with biting wit and sardonic perspective, it follows the whimsical adventures of a rather cynical stray kitten. He finds his way into the home of an English teacher, where his running commentary on the follies and foibles of the people around him has been making readers laugh for more than a century. This is the very first manga edition in English of this classic piece of Japanese literature. The story lends itself well to a graphic novel format, allowing readers to pick up on the more subtle cues of the expressive cat, while also being immersed in the world of his perceptive narration. It is true to classic manga form, and is read back to front. The cast of characters includes: Kushami--His master, who is not good at his job and quite stupid The Kenedas--A conceited couple with a spoiled daughter Meitei--Kushami's friend who is fond of jokes and tall tales A group of local cats including lovely Mikeko, and violent Kuro Beautifully illustrated by Japanese artist Chiroru Kobato, this edition provides a visual, entertaining look at a unique period in Japan's history--filled with cultural and societal changes, rapid modernization and a feeling of limitless possibility--through the eyes of an unlikely narrator.
