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.
Bruce Ingman is the award-winning children’s book illustrator of The Pencil, Previously, The Runaway Dinner, and Everybody Was a Baby Once and Other Poems, all by Allan Ahlberg. His illustrations have also appeared in several magazines, including British Vogue. Bruce Ingman lives in London.
