Review Text

  • By Susan Gabbay on June 23, 2010

    Tales of cats, some well-known and many less so, collected by a respected folklore scholar. From ancient Egyptian worship to modern literary portrayals, the cat appears as good or bad--but never indifferent. Delightful nursery rhymes are included, as well as tales from Japan, Korea, Wales, and other traditions around the world. Several appendices supply notes, sources, motifs and a bibliography. Indexed. Not a children's book, but an excellent one for the teacher and storyteller.

    This is a good overview of the history of cats in folklore. It is detailed and includes a list of traditions about cats in the U.S., a list of stories cited, notes, and a bibliography. It was a great starting point for finding good stories to tell. It was recommended on the Endicott Studios website. Since it was published in 1980 I didn't expect to find a copy on Amazon, but of course I did because Amazon is such a great place to find the right book.
