Book of the day: Arabella the Heavenly Cat

This tiny hardcover picture book, printed in 1969, is almost too cute for words. It is about a cat called Arabella who goes to heaven in a basket (of course). When she comes back home & misplaces her basket, it becomes her mission to find a way back to cat heaven. The story is gorgeous but the drawings are what completely won me over.
I found this little gem buried in a stall at the Macclesfield market a couple of weeks ago. The stall belonged to a couple who were selling native plants, Christmas decorations and strangely enough only books about... cats. Oh, the people we have met on our market adventures!
