This cute little back-to-back book contains two short folktales about magic cats! Its size makes it ideal as a stocking filler or small precious gift for someone special.

One of the retold folktales is the well-known "King of Cats" tale, the other one "The Magic Sausage" I found in my book of folk- and fairytales from the region of Germany where I grew up, collected by a contemporary of the Grimm brothers, Franz Xaver von Schönwerth. Stories in his collection also contains elements of the "King of Cats" story, though not the version I was familiar with.

I re-told and illustrated my own versions of these odd little tales - one featuring my mother, the other my brother-in-law - and screenprinted them by hand onto 270gsm grey colourplan paper. The small booklet measures 10.5 x 7.5 cm when folded up, and contains both stories back-to-back - you won't have to buy two copies to get both books: it's a two-in-one!

It's a perfect gift for for cat-lovers, cat-mums, ethnologists, printmakers and anyone who loves strange encounters.
