    You see, even T. S. Eliot understood that a cat must have (at least) three different names. :-D

    I have to buy the book but which cover is the cutest!? For me, it stands between the couple holding hands and the yellow cover with the kittens climbing a ladder. The agony of choice.

      Yes, worthy of the nobel prize!!

      The ladder version is the first edition. I LOVE the first one because of the well hidden cats in the font. There should be hidden kittens instead of easter eggs…
