Little Diana learns from her grandmother that the King of the Cats and his subjects live in the barn and immediately she finds herself a student at Madame Tabby's school for kitten manners. A straightforward and amusing fantasy, written with an economy unusual for its era by a little known author. This book provided Wain with his first break into a lifetime of book, and kitten, illustration (Dale). These cats are more naturalistic than his later ones, all individual characters from the story, with a touch of Wain's style.
