The writer's cats

Barbery, Muriel

"A humorous and touching story that pays tribute to creativity, beauty, the poetry of the everyday, and to the ingenuity and sardonic humor of cats. 'The Writer's Cats' tells the story of four felines, each with a very distinct personality. There's Ocha, the leader of the gang, a tough guy with a soft heart; there's bandy-legged, affectionate Mizu; There's the phlegmatic and refined Petrus, lover of flowers; and finally, there's pretty Kirin, narrator of this bewitching story. Together, they have decided enough is enough! They deserve recognition for the assistance they have provided their owner over the years; they demand acknowledgment not as mere muses but as co-creators. Kirin, chuffed beyond measure to have been elected their representative in this important matter will present their case." --
