Nesbit, Edith: Pussycat and Doggy Tales.v1. 03 September 2015

PUSSYCAT AND DOGGY TALES
by Edith Nesbit (1858–1924)

First published 1895.
The text of this book is in the public domain in countries where copyright is “Life+70” or less, and in the USA. Additional material and cover design are released under the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 4.0 License.

--------------
Edith Nesbit Bland, English author and poet, published approximately 40 books for children under the name of E. Nesbit. Her innovative body of work combined realistic, contemporary children in real-world settings with magical objects and adventures; and influenced many subsequent fantasy writers.

This is a collection of charming short stories, told by cats and dogs. These creatures are not “cute” or “adorable.” They are funny, crotchety, vain, selfish, good-hearted, silly, clever – why, they’re just like people!

-----------------
Notes on the text:
The meanings of some words have evolved over the past century: some words, which were completely innocent then, have changed to more vulgar usage.

The "Unedited" version leaves the original text intact, with the exception of the edited book title, which I kept to prevent confusion.

The Child-safe version has been edited for young readers.
Characters in this version are herein referred to as Pussycat, Kitty, or Cat. Individual edits are not footnoted, as I believe this kind of attention would negate the purpose of the editing.
Edits were made to the book title and titles of stories 5 and 6. Edits were made in Story 2, para. 3, 4; Story 5, last para.; Story 7, para. 39, 44, 49; Story 8, para. 3.

----------------------
Several glossary annotations were added. Punctuation and italics have been formatted. Chapter heads are cross-linked to dynamic Table of Contents. Due to copyright restrictions, the illustrations by Lucie Kemp-Welch (1869–1958) were omitted. Embedded fonts are used for titles and drop-caps, and for decorations.

------------------
Give these stories a try -- I'll bet you didn't know what your pets are really thinking...
.

EDIT: By request, uploaded an "Unedited" version.
Previous downloads of the "child-safe" version: 10.
