Summary

A surreal tale of the secret world of the cats of the Louvre, told by Eisner Award winner Taiyo Matsumoto.

The world-renowned Louvre museum in Paris contains more than just the most famous works of art in history. At night, within its darkened galleries, an unseen and surreal world comes alive - a world witnessed only by the small family of cats that lives in the attic. Until a young guide, Cécile, spots one of them and decides to learn more, unveiling a magical, spooky world dating back to when the museum was a palace.
