Oh, Macavity! T S Eliot’s well-loved feline lives again in this sparkling interactive board book. The cat character on the cover intrigues, as Macavity stands there with a huge hunk of iced layer cake, a sneaky expression on his face. There’s a question posed on each left hand page: “Is he in the kitchen?” with the repeated response, “Macavity’s not there!” on the right, an immediate invitation to join in. The well-designed flap reveals just who is hiding where, and on the final page, guess who is hidden under the tablecloth! The pawprints across the page may give a clue. It is Macavity, of course, having helped himself to someone’s 3rd birthday cake and hidden away to enjoy it. Arthur Robins (famed illustrator of Little Rabbit Foo Foo amongst others,) energetically captures this mischievous cat, one we hope readers will meet later in life in T S Eliot’s original poem. A treat to be enjoyed over and again.
