Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In this title from the "Eyewitness Books" series, readers learn about the cat family. The anatomy of wild and domestic cats, their senses, and their abilities as hunters, climbers, parents and many other related topics will keep serious researchers and browsers absorbed for hours. Cats have been household pets for more than 5,000 years and they were greatly revered in Egypt, as tomb paintings have revealed. The excellent photographs and drawings bring much to the text in this great introduction to the feline family. There is an index and table of contents.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
This "Eyewitness Book" details the evolution and characteristics of domestic and wild cats. Two-page chapters focus on such topics as the agile predators' skeletal structure, extinct predecessors, senses, markings, and habitat-the stuff from which great school reports materialize.
