Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Oliver
This volume from the "All About Cats" series focuses on the less well-known Ocicat breed. Packed with information in four short chapters, readers are invited to explore the history of the breed, which originated with a breeder in Michigan in the 1960's. Bred to have a wildcat look, the spotted coat of the Ocicat makes it stand out from the common shorthair. Large photos with informative captions work to enhance the textual information and small fact boxes abound featuring information such as, "Most cats dislike water. But many Ocicats seem to enjoy playing in it." Small boxes containing definitions of words used on the pages' text are presented, but the glossary at the end only duplicates those words without any additions. In addition to the glossary, end matter includes suggestions for further reading, directions to the FactHound website for information on the Internet and a thorough index. The reading level of this book may be higher than the interest level, but the book will have appeal as an addition to the cat collection. Reviewer: Sharon Oliver
