A Fresh Look At Cats illustrated by Sir Abner Graboff in 1963 !!! :)

This marvelous book was written and illustrated by one of the most talented illustrator of the mid century : Abner Graboff.
I was looking for this book for a long time because i'm a cat lover too and i was so happy when my husband offered me this book for my birthday !!! :D
That's funny because this book was inspired by Abner's own cat called Tarzan. :)
In fact, his 3 boys proved excellent collaborators on A Fresh Look At Cats, shadowing Tarzan constantly and reporting their observations to their father.
Cats are so inspirational, i would love illustrate a book about my Crazy Cat one day ! :)

Enjoy !!! :)
