"Fine feline fantasies"
Cats always seem at home in the fantasy (and horror) genre
at least in this reviewer's mind since the 1950s Bell,
Book, and Candle; so a genre match-up seems natural. This
fourteen-book collection stars felines as key players in
new renditions of children's fairy tales that target young
and aging alike. The contributors are a virtual who's who
of fantasy as popular children's tales are turned by their
tail. Just a few titles to further explain the lead
cat: "Ali Babette", "All the Pigs Houses", "Sleeping
Beauties", "The Cobwebbed Princess", and "Cat-Friend", etc.
The tales of the tails is a lot of fun for fantasy fans,
and of course feline lovers, and cats (trust me they must
be able to read if they reside in my house -- if they could
