The 15 poems in Old Possum's Book of Pratical Cats are fun, straight-foward poems that delve into the mystery of cats. I especially enjoyed "The Naming of Cats"; it explains the three types of names possessed by every cat. Most of the other poems explore the personalities of cats. Edward Gorey's pen-and-ink drawings add to the charm of the poems. As a movie, this would be definately rated G, even with the battle between the Pekes and the Pollicles. :)
