The Nine Lives of A Cat A Tale of Wonder

This tale of wonder is told for children; with which view, it has been carefully designed and very nicely printed. For some time past, it has arrived at the dignity of a popular Nursery Tale in the Author’s family ; and it is hoped it will merit the same good fortune elsewhere. It will be worth while explaining, that the circle in each page is made to represent some object ...more

Recommends it for: Morbid children
Recommended to Shane by: Meghan
This is a charming and ridiculous little picture-book about how a cat came to lose all 9 of its lives. It is full of detailed colorful Victorian illustrations, mostly of a cat with manlike muscle structure being nearly-killed. We are spared the actual moment of the cat's death, but the cat's ghost is pictured wailing and waving a hankerchief.

A fluff kid's book back when kids books were violent and good/dreadful.

A fun spot-check for history. Didn't particularly enjoy it, but definitely appreciated it, and the art.

This book is very old from 1860, they said it's for the children but OMG !!! all are about how the cat was killed ! I don't think this is suitable for any children ! it's a nightmare story book !

Charles Henry Bennett was a prolific Victorian illustrator who pioneered techniques in comic illustration.

Born on 26 July 1828, Bennett was the eldest of three children. As a child, Charles developed a passion for art, drawing for his inspiration on the motley crowds he saw daily in the market. As an adult, Charles became part of the London bohemian scene, and was a founder member of the Savage Cl
