About the Book

The Maine Coon's Haiku: And Other Poems for Cat Lovers

Written by Michael Rosen with illustrations by Lee White

In evocative haiku, Michael J. Rosen depicts twenty different breeds of cats --- whether mischievous or mysterious, comical or commanding.

Some cats have names that suggest far-off lands, like the Turkish Angora and the Norwegian forest cat. Others allude to places closer to home, such as California’s ragdoll and the Maine coon. Set against Lee White’s graceful illustrations, with intriguing facts about each of twenty breeds at the end, this charming haiku collection for lovers of America’s most popular house pet provides the purr-fect book to curl up with.
