Teaser and the Firecat is the fifth album released by Yusuf / Cat Stevens. It contained songs such as “Morning Has Broken,” “Moonshadow,” and “Peace Train.” It is also the title of a children’s book written and illustrated by Stevens. The story features the title characters from the album cover, top-hatted young Teaser and his pet Firecat, who attempt to put the moon back in its place after it falls from the sky. An animated version of the story, narrated by Spike Milligan, was also produced.

The album was a commercial success, surpassing the heights achieved by Tea for the Tillerman. It spent an impressive fifteen weeks at the top of the Australian charts, becoming the biggest-selling album in the country in 1972.
