Gr 1-4–Stylish purebreds grace the pages of these titles, which include an introduction, information on appearance, and the definition of a purebred. Stone’s descriptive writing refers to Abyssinians as being the friendliest of cats, Exotics as looking like teddy bears, and Maine Coons as having bushy, ringed tails. The Cat Fanciers Association is consistently referenced as an authority on breed standards. Sections entitled “The Cat for You?” question whether a particular breed, such as a Persian with its daily grooming requirements or a Ragdoll that must be kept indoors, would be a good fit. Segments on history and facts lists discuss pertinent tidbits, such as the Siamese’s Thai origins. The color photos are attractive, but their layout is uninspired. Additional information is given through captions, an “About Cat Breeds” section, and leads to related Web sites.
