Format: Hardcover
This book contains lovely full-color, full-page photos and a some info about different breeds of cats. The reason it does not get 5 stars is that only about 43 of the pictures are not already in

Smitten: A Kitten's Guide to Happiness or
101 Cataclysms: For the Love of Cats.

Some of the repeated photos were smaller or black & white in the earlier books.

Also there is not the nice little bits of info about the cat and taking the photos that are at the back of the other books.

Lovely book of cat photos, but I wish they had all (101) been new pictures.

Format: Hardcover
When I came across The Cat's Pajamas I was pretty sure I had found a winner. Lots and lots of pictures of cats meant my pre-reading daughter would be able to wallow in cats to her heart's delight, buying me some precious time to sleep in or read a book of my own.

This theory was only half-right. I did find a winner, but there is nothing quiet about my daughter's enjoyment of this book.

"Mommyo, there's a cat in a bag, can you believe your eyes?"

"Mommyo, there's a cat wearing glasses! That's so silly!"

"Mommyo, that cat's purple!"

(No, really, apparently British Shorthairs come in purple now. Well, lilac, if you want to get technical about it.)

This book is clearly a big hit with my daughter, who has fallen asleep clutching it more than once.

I like many things about it too. There are several breeds in here that I've never heard of, and Hale does a good job of succinctly describing the origins of those rarer (and/or newer) breeds.

My main criticism of the book is that the subtitle, "101 of the World's Cutest Cats," sets an impossibly high bar for a book that doesn't include a single tortoiseshell cat.

Also, with a few exceptions such as the silver shaded Chinchilla Persian on p. 150, the chocolate Mandalay on p. 66, and the cream Devon Rex on p 52, Hale's photos are simply extremely competent images of cats being cats. Here and there Hale shows her subjects doing something unexpected and adorable, but for the most part, her images lack the artistry of Anne Geddes or the humor of William Wegman. The cover photo actually is a pretty good example of what I mean. The photo is cute, but cat-wearing-bow is hardly a surprising or original concept.

If you know Rachel Hale McKenna's story you know that she was in a legal battle and walked away from every image she created before 2007 . . . she know longer owns her own images because of a greedy partnership . . . the images of her own dog, who she lost during the legal battle, were taken from her . . .

You will just love these photos by Rachel Hale of many types of cats. She manages to capture
their inscrutable demeanor while posing them in imaginative ways. A must have.

I bought this as a gift without knowing that it came with a black mark on the top. If you buy the one that Amazon fulfills it shouldn't be a problem. I saved several dollars by using a marketplace bookseller but lost out because of the ugly black mark - no indication in the seller's description; it just said NEW. Hopefully my niece will be so busy looking at the cute pictures that she won't mind the mark.
