Booklist Review

Gr. 4^-7. These books in the Learning about Cats series contain identical information when it comes to feeding, litter training, and more, but each volume also presents an informative introduction to a specific breed. The books begin on rather a staid note, giving the facts about the animals--appearance, size, personality. The texts grow more interesting as they discuss the development of the breed, especially interesting in the case of the tailless manx, and the particulars of each breed. The real drawing card here is the many color photographs that show cats and kittens cavorting across the pages. The back matter is good, too, with a glossary, a bibliography, useful addresses, and Internet sites. --Ilene Cooper
