Delightful and quirky illustrations by Martin Leman are accompanied by crazy, amusing, alliterative, onomatopoeic verse by Angela Carter.

The reader goes through the alphabet from Abednigo, who is altogether adorable and lives in Appletreewick, to Wilberforce, who is watchful and wakeful and lives in West Wittering, enjoying the crazy cats and their habits.

As for XYZ, what more can be said than, 'I love my cat with an XYZ ... There is really nothing more to be said' ... so there, just enjoy it!
