When you go off to school, you think I just sleep all day. WELL, BOY, HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU!

Martha may think her cat, Lionel, merely naps while she is at school, but she is quite mistaken. Lionel has a jam-packed schedule. He busies himself during the day by catching up on current affairs, weightlifting, cooking, painting, and — most important — socializing. This award-winning tale of a cat’s private life is presented with humor and panache by the talented Bruce Ingman.
