Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Almost fifty-years ago, in Kentucky, Nikki Horner developed the Bombay breed of cat when she mated a black American Shorthair with a sable Burmese. The Bombay's personality traits, coat, color, and size are profiled briefly in this twenty-four-page book. Certain breed standards are reviewed and a few characteristics that would eliminate a Bombay from cat show competitions are mentioned. Troubling is the amount of material duplicated from other books in the "Checkerboard Animal Library's Cats Set III" series. This includes the introductory material in "Lions, Tigers, and Cats," as well as information in "Kittens," "Buying a Kitten," "Feeding," and a significant portion of the section "Care." Words deemed challenging are bolded in the text (e.g. hyperactive, chamois, spayed, neutered, and pedigree) and defined in the glossary, as their meanings cannot easily be determined by their use in context. To access additional information through the Internet, the "Web Sites" section at the end of the book refers readers to the ABDO homepage, where, via "Book Links," which the publisher promises to update periodically, they can connect to other sites. 2003, ABDO Publishing Company, Braaf
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Each of these titles briefly examines the origins, behavior, and physical characteristics of a particular breed of cat and gives basic information about domestic cats in general. The information is much like what one might find in an encyclopedia article. The straightforward texts are fairly simple; difficult terms are in bold print and defined in the glossary. Sections on cat history, feeding, and choosing a kitten are identical in each book. A clear photograph faces each page of text adding visual appeal. While not for beginning readers, these short introductions will not be daunting to those who have mastered the basics. A note in each book refers readers to the publisher's Web site, with a promise of links to relevant sites for each breed. Cat lovers and children whose families own one of these breeds will be interested, and there's probably enough in each book for a brief report, but these titles aren't likely to have a particularly broad fan base.-Arwen Marshall, Minneapolis Public Library Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
