Just the photos alone are adorable. This book shares information on twelve cat breeds. Included is a description of the breed, its origins, care and personality and whether it would be a good choice for you. Accompanying this are fantastic photo. In these photos, you can see the cat’s personality. They are colorful and beautiful.

If you love cats, this book is definitely for you.  If you’ve always been curious about them, pick up this book and read it. Although it’s suppose to be for middle-grade readers, I think adults can benefit from it too. My only complaint, is that there should have been more photos.

Excellently researched, with additional material at the back of the book.

I loved this book, its topic and lay-out! I give this book:
