"Once upon a time there was a very old man and a very old woman. They lived in a nice clean house which had flowers all around it, except where the door was. But they couldn't be happy because they were so very lonely..." So begins Wanda Gag's 1928 masterpiece, Millions Of Cats, and this little treasure is as fresh and appealing today, as it was almost 75 years ago. The old man, wanting to make his wife happy, sets out to find her a cat. He travels far and wide until he comes to a hill covered with cats. "Cats here, cats there,/Cats and kittens everywhere,/Hundreds of cats,/Thousands of cats,/Millions and billions and trillions of cats." But which one should the old man choose to take home with him? Just as he picks out one pretty kitty, he spies another he can't leave behind and then another, and on and on until soon he's bringing all "those hundreds and thousands and millions and billions and trillions" of cats home with him..... Ms Gag's engaging text begs to be read aloud, and youngsters will revel in "helping" you read the entertaining singsong refrain over and over again. Her charming black ink illustrations are filled with marvelous detail that captures the story beautifully. Perfect for kids 3-7, Millions Of Cats is a timeless classic to read and share now with family and friends, and with future generations in the years to come.
