A Pussycat’s Christmas

pussycat-aA Pussycat’s Christmas

Margaret Wise Brown

Illustrated by Anne Mortimer

HarperCollins Publishers, 1994, 1949

From the dust jacket: “How can you tell when it’s Christmas? Is it the snow? Is it the rustle of tissue paper? Or the sound of bells? Or the music of a song? Here is all the mystery and beauty of Christmas seen through the eyes of a cat, told in a simple, rhythmic story by Margaret Wise Brown, and illustrated with beautiful paintings by Anne Mortimer.”

First of all, any book with Anne Mortimer’s illustrations and story by Margaret Wise Brown is going to be wonderful. Second, any book that has a beautiful cat at the center of the story is going to be extra wonderful. And third, any book that has a tuxedo cat as it’s star is going to be extraordinarily wonderful!! This book is extraordinarily beautiful and wonderful! The story makes you want Christmas here right now! The pictures make you want to roll in the snow and listen to the quiet of Christmas Eve night. Maybe even spy Santa up in the sky – like PussyCat did! The text is medium size so it is perfect for early readers to read to the younger ones – especially on Christmas Eve. So gather the kittens around and savor a sweet story of wonder and enchantment.

    That looks like a great book. Tuxedo cats are so wonderful.

    This looks like a must have book. I think I’ve done a puzzle of one of these illustrations.
