The Catamount by Sarah Van Arsdale


The Catamount is a book-length narrative poem starring the mountain lion of New England and illustrated by the author. We are excited to be publishing this under our children's book imprint, Little Nomad. 

What People Have To Say

“In this haunting illustrated poem, seasons and millennia pass, history and nature meet, all in a few stanzas. Through the loping rhythm of her words and the kinetic line of her drawings, Sarah Van Arsdale brings the legendary forest cat to crouching, slinking life.”

— Alison Bechdel, American cartoonist of Dykes to Watch Out For, author of Fun Home (2006), and recipient of the 2014 MacArthur Fellowship
