Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
A striped mother cat contentedly licks the top of her kitten's head on the cover of this book offering a plethora of fascinating information about felines. The cover and the title of the opening spread, "Cats are Cool," pull the reader in to discover many things he/she probably did not know about cats and kittens. Some very informative paragraphs, which are numbered from 1 to 100, tell that a small wild black-footed cat in Southern Africa can weigh less than a pet cat; a cat's sense of smell is better than people's but not as good as a dog's; and an unusual cat breed with no hair is known as a Sphynx. Several photos and realistic illustrations enhance each spread. In addition, sidebars in the forms of a cartoon, text inside a cat's collar called "I don't believe it," and quizzes inside a ball of yarn are scattered throughout the book. Text inside a large yellow show ribbon offers directions for fun craft ideas. Some craft projects include designing your own saber-toothed cat mask and a list of items you can create to make your cat a champion. Sections that are especially good are those relating cat tales, cat shows, and famous cats. The book is well-researched and formatted to make it easy to gather information for reports. It is just one in the "100 Things You Should Know About" series. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
