A good book for a general overview of cat breeds. I'd have liked a bit more infromation on each breed though, the info given is only very basic.

I ordered this for my son. He is 8, a high reader, and loves cats & this book. The shopper should be aware that this is not a book written with children in mind. It is also not a big book (11-12") like many of the DK books for children. It is 8.5" tall, 320 pages. The font is very small, but it is packed with detailed information and the same high quality illustrations expected in a DK book. So if considering this book for a child, it may be above their reading level. However, if interest in cats is high, your child may take on the challenge and will certainly enjoy the variety of illustrations. I am giving it 4 stars due to the font size.

i havent read a whole book since graduate school but have never stopped learning about things. we have the entire collection and i now devour them cover to cover. i purchased almost all of them on Amazon for $5-$13 each (verses the $20 cover price). my kids and i LOVE to read these books and learn about the rocks, fossils and nature we find camping and fishing. who knew there were so many different kinds of cats?!

I bought this book for my students to do research on cats with! It really helped with the types of breeds section! Eye Witness books are great as a start for basic research! They really loved it and it produced some awesome work!

"This is an illustrated 'encyclopedia'...not the Cat / Eyewitness book I thought it was (history of cats).
