My Take on the Book
I have two daughters who love their two cats. They enjoy drawing too, so this book will probably be one they will enjoy using to draw cats and kittens.
As in the other animal drawing books with Robbin Cuddy as the illustrator, the author has included so many facts about cats. For example in the beginning of the book there are two pages listing facts concerning the names of breeds of cats and the cats' coat lengths. Some of the breeds are: Burmese, Persian, and Siamese. The cat's coat lengths can be short haired, long haired and even hairless.
Each drawing page has a color photograph of the cat and facts about that particular kind of cat.
There are step by step instructions for the reader to draw the cat.
