Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Siamese cats have pointed faces, slim bodies, and long tails. They are white, tan, or gray with "points" or darker colored areas on their ears, faces, legs, and tails. One of the oldest breeds of cats, they came from Siam (present day Thailand) where they often lived in temples. They were taken to Britain in the 1800s and became popular in the United States in the 1950s. Amy Carter and Susan Ford both had Siamese cats. These cats are busy and meow a lot. They enjoy playing and being around people. They do not like to be left alone. These cats are expensive to buy. When you bring one home it will need food, a food and water dish, kitty litter and box, scratching post, brush, and comb among other things. Regular trips to the vet will help keep the cat healthy. These cats need brushing once a week in the spring but less often the rest of the year. There is a glossary, list of books, websites, and a short index. This is one of "The Best Cats Ever" series, and children may want a Siamese cat when they read this book and see the pictures. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
