Whiskers and Rhymes - Arnold Lobel

You like cats? Accessible and whimsical little rhymes? What about fun and quirky illustrations? Yes to all three you say? Then this is the book for you!

The rhyme below particularly spoke to me, but I suspect everyone will be able to find at least one that suits them.

Books to the ceiling, books to the sky.
My piles of books are a mile high.
How I love them!
How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.
