"Pussy and Doggy Tales" is a collection of 13 short stories for children about dogs and cats published by Edit Nesbit in 1899 – she who wrote “The Railway Children” and “Five Children and IT” amongst many others. The collection follows the lives and adventures of various cats and dogs which are further enhanced by 18 pen and ink illustrations by L. Kemp-Welch.
This charming children's collection will appeal to animal-loving children and would make for perfect bedtime reading.
