My Nine Lives by Clio

Illustrated by: Marjorie Priceman
For Ages: 4 - 8
What a discovery!
A remarkable book has been found -- the journal of a cat. Written between 3,000 B.C. and the present, this "first-feline" account by one Clio records her nine extraordinary lives, and contains information...that could rewrite history.
How fascinating to read, in Clio's own words, the story behind her naming of the constellations.
How charming to see miniature self-portraits illustrating her ingenious invention of the alphabet.
How beguiling to hear her description of making the Mona Lisa (clearly a cat aficionado) smile.
And there's so much more!
Discovered under a dusty couch by Clio's current owner, here is a startling document sure to astound historians, cat lovers, and children alike.
