Item description for A Pussycat's Christmas by Margaret Wise Brown...

There are certain sounds---the rustle of tissue paper, the melody of a Christmas carol---and certain sights---the light of a fireplace fire, the sparkle of Christmas ornaments---that signal the coming of Christmas. To Pussycat, the essence of Christmas is made up of all of these sensations, which capture the mystery and beauty of this favorite holiday. Margaret Wise Brown's affectionate text, first published in 1949, has been reillustrated by Anne Mortimer in a glowing new edition, perfect for cat lovers and Christmastime revelers to enjoy for many Christmases to come.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Pussycat's Christmas?

A Pussycat's Christmas  Dec 30, 2007
This is a wonderful book - one of my grandaughters favorites. It's a great one to read aloud.
Pussycat Xmas  Nov 15, 2007
Great Xmas book for the cat lover, and anyone who loves cat will recognize their cat and the Christmas tree.

author of "Hobo Finds A Home"
A Christmas Ornament  Mar 18, 2006
Our family sets out A Pussycat's Christmas every year when dressing the house for the holidays. Last year our copy got dropped in a bucket of water. A calamity that required immediate purchase of another copy and express shipping.
It's a charming tale. The illustration is excellent. Especially if you have a "Pussycat" look-a-like as we do this little book will become a part of your Christmas too.
Another great Brown book!  Oct 18, 2005
As usual, Margaret Wise Brown is as tuned in to animals as she is with children. She uses a kitten's viewpoint to describe the wonders of Christmas-sights, sounds, smells, and the way cats delight at playing with everything-wrappings, ribbons, ornaments, decorations. A beautiful, descriptive story.
Purrr-fectly told through the eyes of a Pussycat!  Jun 23, 2005
Ann Mortimer's illustrations are outstanding. Margaret's word's capture "cat" PURR-fectly!

I love the way Margaret writes - I have MANY of her books.

For anyone who has a cat and Christmas: "...She went POUNCING around in it... and she ATE some it..." "... she waited for something to fall, crash and to break" SO Cat!

This book is great fun to read outloud with kids listening!
