Millions of Cats by
Call Number: Child PZ7.G1214 M55 (1st floor)
Need a moral boost for midterms? This picture book, with macabre fairytale elements that only a pre-WWII published book can naturally pull off, is literally a Battle Royale of cats. The premise of the story is of a lonely elderly couple’s search for a cat companion, but how they achieve this end is (unexpectedly) equally horrific and hilarious.
Despite its appearance, Millions of Cats has acquired a legacy to its name, not only being the oldest American picture book still in print, but as a 1929 John Newberry Award winner as well. Those accolades aside, Millions of Cats is unquestionably worth the read. :)
