Peter Leeming | 1 comments This was a children's book I read in primary school in England about forty years ago. The book followed a boy who discovers a talking cat. The cat is wise and the boy wishes to emulate it. The cat offers the advice "Think before you act and wash before you think." The boy follows this and so do others, with eventually the world becoming a better place because people are thinking before they act (and washing before they think). The book was illustrated and had a funny illustration of clothed humans washing themselves like cats.
I cannot remember the author's name or the title of the book. Any help on this will be gratefully received.
Thank you.
