The Matted Cat

By Jess Smith

"Old Scottish songs, stories, poems and haunting music."

(Above from here).

I loved listening to this disk! Don't just take my word for how wonderful it is though... Go to the site linked to above, and download the samples mentioned below the bit of writing about this book.

The songs do have a sad haunting quality. I don't understand all the words, but there's a musical sound even to the reading. :)

It's a bit hard for me to understand, but I can hear why you would love it. :)

Rita & AK:
I don't understand the words either... I think it's Gaelic? I just thought it was beautiful music. And the stories (which are in English, so I did understand those, lol) are fantastic!

Oh... I'm glad it wasn't just me that was thinking, "I don't understand what they are saying!"

Very pretty music.

Nope, Iggy, it wasn't just you... It's all of us. The music is pretty enough thatyou can get past that though, I think! :)
