The scholar and his cat, Pangur BánThe poem has been translated and adapted many times over the centuries perhaps most famously by W. Smith, who has previously illustrated the immeasurably wonderful Sidewalk Flowers , imbues the ancient text with contemporary visual language through his singular, elegantly minimalist graphic novel aesthetic. We see the old monk poring over his manuscripts in search of wisdom as Pangur prances around their spartan shared abode, chasing after a mouse and a butterfly. Each is totally absorbed in his task. Complement it with the vintage gem The Story of Mrs. Zelinsky and the contemporary treasure Lost Cat by Caroline Paul and Wendy MacNaughton — two very different, equally wonderful stories about love and humanity enlarged by a feline friend.
