A classic picture book that appeared in Faber's very first catalogue in 1929 . . .
Wanda Gag's timeless tale follows an old man who is looking for the perfect cat. But when he finds them the cats are all too lovely to leave so he returns with 'hundreds of cats, thousands of cats, millions and billions and trillions of cats'. How will he choose which cat to keep?
Wanda Gag (1893-1946) was born in New Ulm, Minnesota, the daughter of an artist and the eldest of seven children. Wanda initiated the double-page spread, designing two facing pages as one panoramic scene. In recognition of her rare artistry, she was the posthumous recipient of the 1958 Lewis Carroll Shelf Award for Millions of Cats and the 1977 Kerlan Award for the body of her work.
