Overview

Cats again? You can never have too many . . .

Drawn from the hundreds of cartoons published in The New Yorker in the seven years since The New Yorker Book of Cat Cartoons--as well as from fabulous older cats--this new collection is as hilarious and irresistible as the first.

The cartoons provide a cat's-eye view of the world and the important things in life: food, sleep, love and affection, adventure, food, good friends and doggy enemies, back rubs, and food. We see the essence of the feline world captured with verve, humor, and warmth by classic New Yorker artists such as Ed Koren, George Booth, William Steig, Saul Steinberg, Lee Lorenz, Robert Mankoff, Mick Stevens, Danny Shanahan, and Bruce Eric Kaplan.

Purrfectly divine!

Cat lovers will treasure this book! The New Yorker¿s staff has created a second volume of cat cartoons by adding more recent cat cartoons since the first book came out as well as some older cartoons. As before, the 86 pages bristle with humor about our relationships to cats, a cat¿s eye on our world, and the usual switching of cats and people into each other¿s roles. To my taste, over half of the cartoons were outstanding, and all were good. Here are some of my favorites: Man visiting bare-chested yogi on a ledge outside a cave entrance is surrounded by cats. ¿The meaning of life is cats.¿ Sam Gross; Wall of books with signs above them ¿Travel, Science, History, Fiction, Cute Cats.¿ A well-dressed man is standing in front of Cute Cats holding a book with an illustration of a cat. Sidney Harris; ¿Dog Days¿ is the caption for a subway car filled with dogs looking hot, with their tongues hanging out, wearing disheveled suits. A lone cat in the middle is neatly dressed and is definitely the cool cat of the illustration. William Hamilton; Cat executive sits behind a large desk that covers an aquarium filled with very large fish. Bernard Sshoenbaum; Cat speaks to a bird in a tree. ¿Hey, let¿s do lunch.¿ Robert Mankoff; Man and woman in a restaurant find themselves staring at a cat sitting in the middle of their small table for two. The water explains, ¿We¿re out of flowers.¿ Danny Shanahan; Four panels of a man and woman. In the third panel, a cat walks through and both stop to beam happily at the cat. Joseph Farris; Cat with a television playing in the background is outside of a mouse hole. ¿Jeopardy is on.¿ Sam Gross; Lawyer has cat on shoulder and holds out an envelope to a dog. ¿We¿re slapping you with a stress suit . . . .¿ Danny Shanahan; Cat is driving a taxi cab and speaks to human passenger, ¿Yeah, I was into the pet thing for a while, but that scene wasn¿t for me.¿ Eldon Dedini; Cat holding a smoking gun as a dead bird lies outside the window, ¿What . . . was I supposed to do? I¿ve been declawed.¿ Frank Cotham; General arrives home and sees cat in the foyer, ¿As you were.¿ Mick Stevens; Cat to owner near cat door, ¿I¿m going out. Do you need any voles? Sam Gross; Fortune teller holding woman¿s hand, ¿A wonderful cat is coming into your life.¿ Edward Koren; Cat is bed waking up, while the alarm goes ¿Tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet.¿ Arnie Levin; Two dogs are looking at a cat walking by, ¿Are we talking about life style or orientation?¿ Peter Steiner. The book¿s weaknesses are two. First, it lacks an essay to tie together the humor and deepen your appreciation of it. So it¿s more like a scrapbook of cartoons than a book of cartoons. Second, the dog-cat humor was not nearly as good as in the first book of New Yorker cat cartoons. You would think that there would be an endless supply of outstanding work available . . . but I guess not. The positive aspect of the book is to realize how much better most of us relate to cats than to other people. Keeping that same wonderful cat relationship, how can you improve your human connections? How about bringing along a cat to enjoy with others? Love a cat today! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The 2,000 Percent Solution and The Irresistible Growth Enterprise

'Last Shot' is about Susan Carol and Stevie who are sent to cover the Final Four basketball tournament,which is won on a last second shot, as reporters after winning a writing contest. Susan Carol is a tall pretty girl from the South who loves Duke, one of the four teams. Stevie is a basketball lover from Philadelphia and is pulling for St. Joes, one of the other four teams. After over-hearing a secret converation by way of their all-access media passes they find out a star player from one of the teams is getting blackmailed. They decide to try to help and they are led on a series of exciting on the edge of your seat, adventurs trying to find the culprit. I enjoyed reading this book and liked the authors style of writing. I would recommend it to anyone who likes sports and especially likes basketball.
