The Language of Cat

Poems

 
By Rachel Rooney
Illustrated by Ellie Jenkins

Reissue of the prizewinning first collection from an author now firmly established as a leading children's poet

Teach me the language of Cat:
the slow-motion blink, that crystal stare,
a tight-lipped purr and a wide-mouthed hiss.
Let me walk with a saunter, nose in the air

Full of wordplay and riddles, with poems that will make you laugh, tell you stories and make you think. Rachel Rooney's prize-winning debut poetry collection, first published in 2011, is now reissued by Otter-Barry books by popular demand, for a new generation of children.
