Description
Striking collage illustrations bring to life a boy's comparisons of his beloved cat to Isis, goddess of Egyptian myth. The goddess Isis was the revered daughter of the earth and sky. The cat Isis is a family pet who is just as special. This dazzling work of paper- and photo-collage, painting and pen-and-ink illustration is both an homage to a beloved feline and a journey into the realm of Ancient Egyptian myth and the goddess Isis. Through a series of lighthearted comparisons between his cat and its goddess namesake, the boy narrator reveals both similarities and differences between the two worlds. An ideal book for pet lovers and lovers of ancient history alike
