Introduction from The Tales of Astro Cat

Dave and Kathleen Horner are charming musicians, and they have written a charmingly lyrical fantasy about a long line of enterprising cats.  The ancestral cat hailed from Siam, the latest scion dwells in the Horners’ own house, and in the intervening centuries these resourceful creatures made their adventurous way through many a land – Italy, England, Ireland, America, even the moon – surviving battles and pirates and hobnobbing with such as Marco Polo, Galileo, Oliver Cromwell, Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, and Charlie Chaplin.  Each of them took a scientific interest in the world around them and especially the guiding stars above them.

The story is embellished with colorful illustrations, and all in all it’s an entertaining way to learn as much as these clever cats do!
