Old Toffer's Book of Consequential Dogs (Hardback)

£14.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

I've rounded up a rowdy assembly

Of my own Consequential Dogs

As counterparts to Eliot's mogs.

Mine are a rough and ready bunch:

You wouldn't take them out to lunch . . .

But if they strike you as friendly, funny,

Full of bounce and fond of a romp,

Forgetful of poetic pomp,

I trust you'll take them as you find them

And, at the very least, not mind them.



T. S. Eliot's best-selling collection of practical cat poems has been one of the most successful poetry collections ever. At last, in the 80th year of Old Possum's Cats, we have the companion volume that Eliot had envisaged, written by master poet Christopher Reid.



This wonderfully witty and varied collection, illustrated in full-colour by the brilliant Sara Ogilvie, is perfect for younger readers to appreciate. A book that will be enjoyed by generations to come, perfect for reading together!
