In 1969 Ralph Steadman received his big break when he illustrated an article written by the polarizing author Hunter S. No Room To Swing A Cat, 1989. A 40-year collaboration between the two ensued, making Steadman one of the most widely recognized illustrators of his time. Inspired by George Grosz and John Heartfield, Steadman developed a distinctive style defined by energetic ink splatters and grotesque, flamboyant figures. His drawings have appeared alongside time-honored tales such as Alice in Wonderland, Animal Farm, and Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Came in great condition with no tears or flaws, and had a clear protective jacket too. I wouldn't even call it an issue but it was an old library book, with the old punch stamp still in it, kind of cool actually. 10/10 Thanks!
I love Steadman's artwork but this story did not live up to its title, in my opinion. However, a five-year old might love it ...
Ralph Steadman. You may not know the name, but believe me, you'd recognize the art style at a glance. His furious, spastic pen-and-ink drawings laced with blown inks and blots of thick black-- as if someone snuck up behind him and yelled BOO! and his pen nib got frightened and let loose-- have been featured in perhaps every magazine and graced the covers of more than just his own books (the old cover for "Fear and Loathing" by Hunter S. Thompson comes to mind...). What's fascinating is the amount of books he has written himself.
With such a jumbled style of illustration, you might find it odd that he's written a childrens' book. Published in Australia in 1989 and currently out of print in the States, it exists in "No Room to Swing a Cat."
Our tale opens when our hero, Tom, announces that his room is too small (hardly surprising considering it's stuffed to the gills with blocks, cars, checkerboards, stuffed animals-- including a moose and dinosaur-- and Tom himself). His mother asks what he means, and Tom says that it's not even big enough to swing a cat in. NOTE: Tom doesn't WANT to swing a cat in it, he's merely pointing out that you CANNOT swing a cat in it-- a distinction that should probably be made to children who get this book read to them.
Thereafter ensues some Steadmanian fun-- mainly two page spreads of Tom swinging various animals to his mother's enquiry of how big his room SHOULD be. "Big enough to swing a pig?" his mother asks, and there on the page is a teeny Tom swinging a large, stunned looking pig by the tail. Tom goes through a number of different animals, each getting larger and more ridiculous looking as they're being swung, until it's revealed that he want's his room big enough for HIM to swing in. At which point he and his mother go outside to Tom's swingset.
If you've seen Steadman's artwork, you'll know it's quite chaotic and sometimes almost sinister-looking. Big blobs of ink are splattered pell-mell across the canvas; if the ink were red, you might think he had been brained right there at his easel. Tom himself is depicted with a big frown-- a simple upside-down semicircle line across his face that gives him a somewhat haunted look. For the last decade or so, the trend in children's books have been towards self-esteem and conflict resolution and away from chaotic illustrations of cockeyed kids whizzing stunned dogs around over their heads. The British phrase use as the title and genesis of the book may be enough for many people to pass up the chance to search for this one, but I personally don't see much harm in it.
Firstly, most of the animals Tom flails about are already taking up space in his room at the very beginning of the book, and it seems reasonable to me that any room that you can't successfully swing a stuffed moose in IS too small.
Secondly, for older children it can help to explain the complex world of adult phrases and simile ("guerrilla warfare" was the one that always stumped me when I was a child; I had visions of half-man, half-ape creatures fighting it out with American soldiers).
Finally, in a world where children have ready access to handguns and Pokemon has our preschoolers running amok pretending to shock, zap or burn each other to cinders, the amusing (if queerly drawn) pictures of one child swinging a stuffed elephant around to show how small his room is pales by comparison.
