It has become an American classic, widely recognized as the first modern picture book. It was a recipient of the 1929 Newbery Honor Book Award and has gone on to sell well over a million copies. With its charming illustrations and rhythmic, singsong refrain, Millions of Cats remains as beloved today as it was when it first appeared three-quarters of a century ago. (Inventory #: 004593)
