Meet the cats on Grandmother's farm in twelve delightful poems.

Countless cats live at Grandmother's farm. They hide in the shade under the porch, prowl through the grass, doze in comfortable laps, vanishing as they please into the shadows. They make themselves at home, ruling the farm and the people who live there.

Follow these cats as they wind their way through the twelve poems collected in Cats Vanish Slowly . You will meet B.P., a "bad penny" who's loyal to the bone, Mama Gray with her many kittens, and Buddha, the cat who might be a mystic, or might just be a cat.

Poet Ruth Tiller captures the personalities and moods of each of her cats in clear, concise language easy enough for young readers, but with evocative imagery and varied rhythms that will engage the interest of older readers as well. Laura Seeley's soft and subtle cat portraits bring Tiller's language to life while creating a beautiful, mysterious atmosphere.

If you've ever loved a cat, you will understand why Ruth Tiller echoes a famous Cheshire Cat passage from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for the title of her book. The cats of Cats Vanish Slowly will remain in your heart and mind long after you finish this magical book.
