"The Boy Who Drew Cats." Lafcadio Hearn.

One-minute review: A boy (Oriental) draws cats—very life-like cats, so life-like that they come alive to kill an enormous goblin-rat which has scared the priests out of a very large Oriental temple. The goblin-rat was as big as a cow. This story is told like a fairy tale, but seems to have no point.
