Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats
By: T. S. Eliot
NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE – The poems by T. S. Eliot that inspired the movie Cats.
Throughout the 1930s T.S. Eliot composed the now famous poems about Macavity, Old Deuteronomy, Mr Mistoffelees and many other cats, under the name of ‘Old Possum’.
In 1981 Eliot’s poems were set to music by Andrew Lloyd Webber as Cats, which went on to become the longest-running Broadway musical in history and is now a film starring Taylor Swfit, Idris Elba, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Rebel Wilson, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Francesca Hayward and James Corden. With illustrations by Rebecca Ashdown.
