How Do I Love Thee Kitty?
Barron's Educational Series, 2007 - Pets - 86 pages
Everybody who is in love will want to give this book of romantic thoughts to the special person in their life. The title is an allusion to a love poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, but the kittens shown in color photos throughout this handsome little volume are strictly Shakespearean. One contented-looking pussycat rests inside a jewelry box where he is surrounded by pearls. The facing page cites a quotation from The Taming of the Shrew: "We will have rings, and things, and fine array:/ And kiss me, Kate, we will be married o' Sunday." There are 42 delightful kitten photos in total, each accompanied by a quotation from one of Shakespeare's poems or plays, among them, As You Like It, Twelfth Night, The Tempest, Love's Labor's Lost, Romeo and Juliet, and other immortal works. Here is a witty and entertaining gift item filled with delightful illustrations and romantic lines of poetry that still ring true after 400 years.
