Millions of Cats

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This charming story first appeared in 1928, and won a Newbery Honor award in 1929, one of the few picture books to do so. It is the oldest American picture book still in print. The moral is simple, but presented in the most delightful pictures with easy-to-read accompanying text (by the author's brother), all in black and white. The author pioneered the double-page format with this book, so that the verbal and the illustrative story moves along simultaneously as each page is turned.

Wanda Hazel Gág (1893–1946) was an American artist, author, translator, and illustrator, best known for writing and illustrating "Millions of Cats", the oldest American picture book still in print. Gág was also an internationally-recognised printmaker. "Growing Pains", a book of excerpts from her teenage and young adult diaries, received critical acclaim. Her books were awarded Newbery Honors and Caldecott Honors.

Our copy is in very good condition for its age, despite having once been in a school library (in North London), as evidenced by one neat stamp inside the front cover. It retains its laminated outer cover, which has protected the exterior against any serious damage that one might expect from its history and probable use. Inside, the binding is firm with no loose pages; all pages clean and bright; no foxing. It is an 11th impression copy from 1974.
