Real Time with Bill Maher writer Chris Kelly will publish Downton Tabby in December, a parody book reenacting Downton Abbey with cats.
We reached out to publisher Simon & Schuster, getting a pair of images from the book. Check them out (embedded above and below), showing all the main characters of the PBS drama as cats. Here’s more about the book, from the release:
This parody of (what else) Downton Abbey features the Grimalkin family, England’s oldest and finest family of cats. Using photographs and illustrations, DOWNTON TABBY takes us through the lives and loves of the family and their servants, from the sinking of the Kitanic to the Jazz Age. Woven through their story are also essential tips, including How to Keep a Secret at Downton Tabby, How to Argue with Lord Grimalkin About His Most Deeply Held Beliefs, and some Uninvited but Necessary Words from the Dowager.
Full disclosure: This GalleyCat editor is writing a book for Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone imprint.
