Read full description of the books A Visit to William Blake's Inn: Poems for Innocent and Experienced Travelers:



Overall, this is probably a 4 star book, but it gets bumped up to 5 stars for having my favorite children's poem of all time in it. It's called "The King of Cats Sends a Postcard to His Wife" and you can read the poem online!



Excerpt:

Clouds are gentle walls that hide
Gardens on the other side
Tell the tabby cats I take
All my meals with William Blake

Lunch at noon and tea at four
Served in splendor on the shore
at the tinkling of a bell.
Tell them I am sleeping well.

I love the gentleness and beauty in the idea of a cat worrying about his household in the afterlife; it's a lovely way to think about heaven. And of course, the illustrations are just perfect, too.

I've often given this charming picture book as a gift to friends. Sometimes those friends even have children who enjoy it, too. :)
