The author

Denise Dresner has enjoyed writing poetry ever since she made her first book out of cardboard and yarn at the age of six. In 'Cat Limericks' she brings together her love of cats and creative wordplay.

The cat

Micia (pronounced Meecha) - aka Her Royal Meechness, the Meechpod, and the Semi-Autonomous Duchy of Mii-chan - was a stray kitten around four months old when she appeared at the author's door one day, and made it clear she had come to stay. She had a funny and endearing personality - playful, bold, adventurous, and extremely affectionate. A photo of her on a bicycle inspired the first limerick ... gradually more were written and this little book took shape. We hope you enjoy it!
