Crazy About Cats
Flying Eye Books, 2017
40pp., hbk., RRP $A27.99
Sometimes it comes as a surprise to little people that cats are more than just the pretty kitty in a basket or the regular moggy that curls up and sleeps in the sun. Rather, there are about 38 different species which roam a range of habitats from the rainforest to the desert.
This book, full of information and illustrations, introduces the young readers to the wider world of cats with lots of facts and explanations including a double page spread which shows them drawn to scale in relation to each other and to a human. Each double page spread covers a different aspect of these creatures, including one that focuses on their future as more and more are lost particularly because of habitat destruction. Both the vocabulary and the layout make the information easy for a young reader to understand and are sure to inspire the “Did you know…” comments that little ones love to surprise adults with.
A great addition to the 599.75 section of your library.
