It's thin as a whisker, but young
children will find Thelma Isaacs'
just-published book of verse as
appealingg - as a box full of kittens.
In "Chester, The Elegant Ches-
hire Cat," the Detroiter relates
the un-elegant exploits of a mis-
chievous tabby.
The reader of this very read-
aloudable volume published by
Vantage Press will be scarcely
aware that Chester's presence
among the denizens of Woodland
Lagoon is highly irregular. (The
charming illustrations by Nell
Clairmonte show Chester is obvi-
ously a run-away housecat who has
shown preference to living among
such lovables as Lana Leopard, a
yak named Yuba — who plays a
tuba — and Livermore Loon.)
Mrs. Isaacs, whose own early
years in the Old Country were far
from idyllic, has created a fanciful
world of never-ending childhood in
"Chester, The Elegant Cheshire
Cat"
* * *
Unfortunately, a second book of
verse written by Mrs. Isaacs,
issued simultaneously with "Ches-
ter," misses by considerably more
than a whisker. "Tongue in Cheek"
presents her observations on life
as wife (of Irving Isaacs) and
mother (of two teen-aged daugh-
ters). In too many instances, the
verse is forced, the subject over-
done.
There are some exceptions, and
Mrs. Isaacs' sprightly imagination
can carry the book across. Take
this limerick:
Delilah, though hot in pursuit,
Didn't crop Samson's handsome
hirsute.
Instead he was shorn,
Of the locks he had worn.,
When they made him an Army
recruit.
How Mrs. Isaacs has found the
time to write two books is mystify-
ing. She has enough material, no
doubt, for a third book, based on
her life—from the time her family
fled by horse and wagon from the
Russian Ukraine to her current
head-whirling activities.
She is employed in the building
and real estate business, besides
keeping a home. In addition to
memberships in organizations, she
is past president of Bnai Brith's
Einstein Chapter and financial sec-
retary of the BBW Council, was a
1964 area chairman of the Muscu-
lar Dystrophy Association and is a
member of Temple Israel.
If she finds time to continue
her diversifying verse writing for
publication, Mrs. Isaacs might do
well to concentrate her talent on
children's books. Books like
"Chester" would be pUrr-fect.
