Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Alderton (You and Your Cockapoo) divides this slender, oversized reference into 16 thematically organized minichapters, detailing cat colors, patterns, and breeds. A representative breed image accompanies each entry and is annotated to indicate distinctive characteristics. The final chapter poses questions and presents a scoring system that facilitates informed decisions about the type of cat appropriate for specific criteria. Prefacing the brief further-reading list is a useful glossary that makes cat-specific markings, colors, and genetic terms readily understandable. With its annotated and open layout, this family-friendly guide will satisfy parents' desire for factual detail while also appealing to children's interest in visuals.
