Product Details


“[Starobinets’s] first title for youngsters translated into English is a trippy, silly tale of cat magic, folklore, and love….Bugaeva’s punny translation will make this a fine read-aloud. A must for those seeking culturally diverse literary experiences.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A madcap and highly original adventure by Anna Starobinets, translated from the Russian, and starkly illustrated.” —The Observer, Children’s Books of the Year

Catlantis is edifying as well as amusing…keeps the reader enthralled to the end in this imaginative epic.” —The Times Literary Supplement

“Referred to as a European classic, Catlantis should find a home here in America too in the hearts of all lovers of animal stories, folklore, and fantasy.” —Allison’s Book Bag (blog)

“A mix of fantasy and all things feline makes this a thoroughly eclectic and enjoyable read.” —Your Cat

“Quite an extraordinary book… wonderfully whimsical and delectable… a book for both children as well as adults.” —The School Librarian

“A self-obsessed house cat must voyage back through the Ocean of Time to find the lost island of Catlantis and save the nine lives of all cats if he is to win the paw of his lady love.” —The Telegraph

Catlantis is a contemporary Russian children’s classic that will soon be available in the U.S. Do NOT let the word ‘children’s’ prevent you from reading this witty ‘feline fantasy of the most amusing and strange kind.'” —Cat Chat with Caren and Cody
