    'The poems in this volume, part of the Library’s popular ‘Little Books’ series, celebrate the feelings many Australians have for their cats — love for their elegance and poise, appreciation for their soothing presence, respect for their independence and aloofness, enjoyment of their antics, and reluctant acceptance of their ‘gifts’.

    'In Little Book of Cats poems by authors such as Les Murray, William Hart-Smith and Gwen Harwood are accompanied by beautiful images from the Library’s collection, including engravings by Lionel Lindsay, a photograph by Harold Cazneaux and a painting by eighteenth-century Korean artist Pyon Sang-byok.'
