Overview

Alexandra Day's captivating Hooray for Dogs (2008) was so warmly received that we decided that the cat lovers of the world should have their say. Our most popular author, Welleran Poltarnees, volunteered for the job. He has shared his long adult life with a series of gray male cats, all named Charles. Hooray for Cats consists of many small sections, each dedicated to one of the many admirable feline traits, inlcuding playfulness, grace, secretiveness, sympathy, dignity, self-reliance and mischievousness. Poltarnees, our master of finding the right image for every thought, has reached in many directions for the illustrations, including childrens books, classic painting, and vintage calendars and advertisements. The result is a feast for cat-lovers.

Meet the Author

WELLERAN POLTARNEES has a lifelong love of gardens. His first memory is falling out of his baby carriage and landing on a bed of odorous white flowers which not only kept him from injury, but made the experience a sensual delight. He collects books about, and pictures of, gardens — but there are few timeless things that he does not so honor. He uses a book called Great Gardens of the World as a guide whenever he travels, and, with the exception of the Boboli Gardens in Florence, which came highly recommended and which he found monotonous — the gardens have always refreshed him. His favorite time for gardens is night. His favorite garden music is Manuel De Falla's "Nights in the Gardens of Spain", and his favorite garden poem is "The Garden" by Andrew Marvell.
