Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

One can never have too many cats--or cat cartoons for that matter--as expertly demonstrated in The New Yorker Book of All-New Cat Cartoons. A follow-up to the magazine's first collection of feline funnies published some seven years ago, this delightful collection captures "a cat's-eye view of the world and the important things in life: food, sleep, love and affection, adventure, food, good friends and doggy enemies, back rubs, and food." Including the work of such notable New Yorker artists as George Booth, Stephanie Skalisky, Danny Shanahan, Arnie Levin, and Edward Koren, this endearing edition will appeal to those lucky enough to count a feline among their friends.

As one who has owned over thirty cats in my life time (as many as five at one time) it is quite obvious that I am, indeed, a cat lover to the utmost degree! While it is difficult to compete with some of the world's greatest and best loved cats, such as Garfield and Norton, most cat lovers will agree this book provides a good supply of absolutely purr-fect humour! It is written in the same witty manner of the previous New Yorker cat cartoons, but I actually preferred this one. There was something about the cat antics in this one that were more true to life. The whole book comes together quite nicely and is equally as amusing and entertaining, if not moreso, than the first New Yorker Book of Cat Cartoons! The antics are great...and so true to life, as any serious cat lover will recognize. The personalities of cats are not much different than humans; our feline friends are just a little better at showing us who is in charge!

Cat lovers will treasure this book! The New Yorker’s staff has created a second volume of cat cartoons by adding more recent cat cartoons since the first book came out as well as some older cartoons.
As before, the 86 pages bristle with humor about our relationships to cats, a cat’s eye on our world, and the usual switching of cats and people into each other’s roles.
To my taste, over half of the cartoons were outstanding, and all were good.
Here are some of my favorites.
Man visiting bare-chested yogi on a ledge outside a cave entrance is surrounded by cats. "The meaning of life is cats." Sam Gross;
Wall of books with signs about them "Travel, Science, History, Fiction, Cute Cats." A well-dressed man is standing in front of Cute Cats holding a book with an illustration of a cat. Sidney Harris;
"Dog Days" is the caption for a subway car filled with dogs looking hot, with their tongues hanging out, wearing disheveled suits. A lone cat in the middle is neatly dressed and is definitely the cool cat of the illustration. William Hamilton;
Cat executive sits behind a large desk that covers an aquarium filled with very large fish. Bernard Sshoenbaum;
Cat speaks to a bird in a tree. "Hey, let's do lunch.
" Robert Mankoff;
Man and woman in a restaurant find themselves staring at a cat in the middle of their small table for two. The waiter explains "We're out of flowers." Danny Shanahan;
Four panels of a man and woman. In the third panel, a cat walks through and both stop to beam happily at the cat. Joseph Farris;
Cat with a television playing in the background is outside of a mousehole. "Jeopardy is on." Sam Gross;
Lawyer has cat on shoulder and holds out an envelope to a dog.

Speaking as a writer of humorous cat books (most recently, "Scratching the 'Net: Web Sites for Cats"), it seems to me quite fitting that a classy creature like the cat should be hilariously immortalized by a classy magazine like the New Yorker. This is another wonderful collection of cartoons by an exceptionally talented group of cartoonists. I defy any cat lover not to find at least several cartoons in this book that remind them of their own personal furry friend.

I love cats and I love "The New Yorker". So, why only four stars. That is for people who do not necessarily love cats and are not overly fond of "The New Yorker". The object of the magazine is to get at the sometimes hidden truth of situations. That's exciting, and useful in an investigative journalism piece or an in depth interview. But it does not necessarily work with non-cat people, who never look into the eyes of a cat and wonder what they are thinking.

Cat people will rarely, if ever, be surprised by the impressions of our felines and ourselves in these cartoons, but we will delight in seeing ourselves, and what we imagine about our cats, done in clever drawings and captions. For example, one of the more enigmatic aspects of cats is what they do with their tails. Unlike dogs, they do not wag in delight when their masters return home, or when they are happy for some other reason. A cat is far more expressive, in more different situations, but what they really mean is a total mystery. That is because cats' tails are far more flexible, and they can control its motions down virtually to its tip.

I confess, some impressions of cats are a bit stretched. I have six cats, and not one of them has a finicky bone in its body when it comes to dinner time. i feed them upwards of 10 different flavors, varying from day to day, and they eat all of them with gusto. The mix, of many different drawing styles and tastes in humor is what makes this book. If it were the same captions with a single artist, it would not be half as entertaining.

Great thing about it is that you can hand it around to fellow cat lovers, and they can appreciate it all in 30 minutes or less.

Love it. I need to resubscribe to the magazine, but it's so hard because they just keep coming week after week and I'm the kind of person who wants to finish every article and hates to throw my favorites away. It's a losing battle.
