What to expect

Listen to this collection of celebrated classic cat stories read by an ensemble cast of beloved audiobook readers – including Samuel West, Lorelei King and Imogen Church.

Classic Cat Stories is an anthology that includes fairy tales and fables from the likes of Rudyard Kipling and Charles Perrault as well as comic tales from Saki and E. F. Benson.

But above all, we love them and you’ll find here stories about all kinds of cats that tug at the heartstrings like The Man of the House by Ethel Colburn Mayne and other stories which celebrate their curious ways.
