KIRKUS REVIEW

Retold through the spontaneous drawings and prose of Hans Fischer is the story of the miraculous puss. His rigorous training to become a cat of such prodigious dimensions is cleverly rehearsed here as he learns to take giant strides--not before he has tried to walk like a biped--, developed a repertoire of simply terrifying expressions, and studied the disguises which will best suit his bold purpose. The illustrations which range from free sketches to completed drawings sustain a free and lyrical quality compatible with the light and humorous tone of the story. Here is real humor, unforced and gracious.
