If you are a cat person, you know that cats celebrate Christmas. They marvel at Christmas trees, attack gift wrap, give presents (c’mon! a dead mouse counts!), receive presents, and eat too much. This holiday behavior was shrewdly documented by B. “Hap” Kliban (1935–1990), the closest man to a cat anyone has ever encountered. In this small but robust volume, his dozens of Yuletide cat cartoons and paintings have been collected for a perfectly pleasing Christmastime diversion. As an extra added attraction, never-before-published cat lyrics to wellknown Christmas carols are included, researched and collected by Professor Winkie B. Earmites. “Hark the Hungry Kitties Sing,” “We Wish You a Mousie Christmas,” and “Kitties We Have Heard on High” are just a few of the rousing standards included. 48 pages, 5 x 6 in. Over 40 full-color cartoons and paintings Casebound with dust jacket $12.95 (Canada $17.95) Catalog Number A634 ISBN 978-0-7649-2108-7 © 2002 Judith Kamman Kliban Text © 2002 Pomegranate Communications, Inc.
