PANGUR BAN

This is an innocuous, indigenous Irish story about a cat, Pangur Ban, who rebelled against the domestic, rodent-hunting routine of all the other cats, and wanted to lead the adventurous life of a dog. So he ran away in search of excitement but was banished to the isolated island retreat of an aged monk whose work was being disturbed, he thought, by mice and rats. But the place was actually infested with fairies and Pangur Ban took it upon himself to rout the Queen. It's a minimal story, simply but adequately told. The offhand pictures have some Celtic stylization and have been tinted a horrid shade of green.
