Over the centuries human beings have had such a passion for cats that not only have they invaded our homes - occupying the sunniest corners and sitting on the softest mats they can find - they have also invaded our language.

Norman Thelwell's collection of drawings is a celebration of this.

From 'The cat's whiskers' and 'scaredy cat' to 'Cat's paw' and 'catnap', Thelwell's delicious and sleek drawings remind us of these phrases in hilarious and often unexpected ways.

Moving beyond phrases to words, Thelwell's endearingly witty vignettes also offer punning feline interpretations of such words as 'catarrh', 'platypus' and 'opus.' For lovers of cats and pictures of cats - above all for fans of Thelwell - this latest collection is a must.
