"A monk leads a simple life. He studies his books late into the evening and searches for truth in their pages. His cat, Pangur, leads a simple life, too, chasing prey in the darkness. As night turns to dawn, Pangur leads his companion to the truth he has been seeking."--

The narrator of this poetic picture-book, a medieval monk and scholar who searches for meaning and answers in his precious books, observes his white cat, Pangur Ban, and compares his own quest with the mouse-hunting skills of his beloved feline...

The figure of Pangur Bán, a beautiful white cat whose talent for mousing was immortalized in a ninth-century poem, written in Old Irish by an anonymous Irish monk, has appeared in a number of children's books and films. British author Fay Sampson has written an entire fantasy series featuring this feline, beginning with Pangur Ban The White Cat, while the successful animated film, The Secret of Kells, includes a feline character of this name. This picture-book retelling of the poem pairs simple, descriptive language from author Jo Allen Bogart with lovely watercolor and ink artwork from illustrator Sydney Smith. I've been meaning to pick up The White Cat and the Monk since it was first published a few years ago, and by sheer coincidence, when I finally got to it today, I was sitting with my sister's young cats and watching their pouncing antics. This definitely improved my reading experience (kittens improve most things, I find), but even without it I would have enjoyed this one. Both text and artwork are lovely! Recommended to all young cat lovers, as well as to those seeking picture-books set in medieval Europe, or featuring an Irish cultural background. ( )

I borrowed this book from the library but intend to order a personal copy. It is a beautiful version of Pangur Bán, a poem written over a thousand years ago. The poem has been translated many times but this illustrated version perfectly captures the solitary contemplative monk and cat. An author's note details the origin. ( )

This is a charming version of the Pangur Bán poem. The illustrations are simple but very effective, I loved the carpet pages and the cat is absolutely charming. I was enchanted by it and I really want a copy of my own to love. ( )

The White Cat and the Monk is, as the subtitle informs us, "A Retelling of the Poem 'Pangur Bán'". "Pangur Bán" is a short verse in Old Irish found scribbled on the margins of a medieval manuscript in Germany that compares the author's work to that of his cat, the aforementioned Pangur Bán. The the cat's name seems familiar to you, that is because the poem provided the name for the cat in the movie The Secret of Kells. The book stays fairly close the the text and the illustrations are nice, with a kind of cinematic expansiveness to them. The only issue is that the number of textless pages means that it is much more fun to read with a partner or two instead of alone. Highly recommended for fans of cats, Celts, and the Middle Ages. ( )

The text’s subtle moral is timeless but also sings with elegiac timeliness — what a wonderful counterpoint to modern life’s hamster wheel of achievement and approval, this idea that there is poetry in every pursuit executed with purposefulness and savored with uncompetitive joy.
