School Library JournalGr 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.
