Review by Publisher Summary 2

Painting in her familiar and highly popular style, this imaginative artist presents an irresistible array of well-known characters in the great Shakespearean plays, from the tragic Romeo and Juliet to the mischievous Titania, from the beautiful Cleopatra to the roguish Falstaff. In thirty-two entrancing paintings, Susan Herbert opens up an unsuspected world of Shakespeare interpreted by cats with all their winning ways. Her many devoted admirers will find this collection full of the charm and humor of her earlier books; and newcomers to her art will be surprised and enchanted by the finesse she brings to this portrait gallery of cats in unusual guises. 32 color illustrations.
