About the Book

At a country house party Cornelius Appin announces that he has discovered a method by which animals can be taught to speak. His latest pupil is none other than Tobermory, the ginger cat belonging to his hosts, Sir Wilfred and Lady Blemley. As the guests express astonishment and incredulity, Sir Wilfred goes off to find Tobermory, who is lounging in the smoking room waiting for his tea. What Appin claims is true, and Tobermory demonstrates his remarkable talents with a number of embarrassing and revelatory comments which prove more than a little uncomfortable for the assembled guests.


The Author

Saki

Saki (H.H. Munro) (1870 - 1916) was the author of numerous short stories, often humorous and macabre, and full of eccentric wit and unconventional situations. His best known collections include Reginald (1904) and The Chronicles of Clovis (1911). He also wrote the novel The Unbearable Bassington (1912), a marvelous social satire of the upperclass Edwardian world. He was killed on the Western Front during the First World War.
