Downton Tabby Book by Chris Kelly

Cat people know that everything is improved by adding cats right? Downton Tabby Book is another one of those things.  It is a new hilarious parody of Downton Abbey, by Chris Kelly, published by Simon & Schuster, just released on December 5th 2013. We love Downton Abbey; so this book arrived just in time for us to purchase for a Christmas read! The story features the Grimalkin family which is the finest and oldest family of cats. The head of the household is the Earl of Grimalkin; other members are his wife Chât-elaine Korat, their three daughters and the Earl’s mother, the Dowager Catness.
