Tobermory, by Saki (or H.H. Munro) tells the story of how a cat either is taught how to speak by a visiting Professor, or perhaps has been capable all along. Trouble is cats have an uncanny ability to lay under tables and chairs without being seen, as the guest of a dinner party soon find out after dear Tobermory begins to share a number of the guest's secrets and overheard conversations to all. In short, it's a brilliantly wicked little tale that is sure to amuse both children and adults alike.
