From School Library Journal
Grade 3-5-In this companion volume to Everything Dog (NorthWord, 2003), Crisp answers 30 questions about cats in a chatty, informal style that makes for easy reading. The queries, which were collected from children, range from "Did cats come from dinosaurs?" to "Why do cats hate water?" The pages are illustrated with full-color photographs of felines, usually in a pose related to the topic. Children will love sharing odd facts about these mysterious animals. An annotated list of 12 Web sites is included. Unfortunately, the URL for the first one is printed incorrectly and at least three of the sites have not been updated in two years.

Gr. 3-6. Why does my cat like catnip? Why can't dogs eat chocolate, and why do they sniff under each other's tails? These questions and more are answered in accessible photo-packed entries in the Kids' FAQs series that introduces facts by answering questions at the head of each chapter. The short sections are filled with interesting facts as well as speculations about pet behavior (Do dogs dream?). Occasionally the text seems a bit breezy: rabies, for example, is described simply as "a nasty virus that can be passed to humans." But kids will like the direct, chatty language and the question-and-answer format, which brings them right to the topics that will interest them most. Sharp color photos, many showing cats and dogs in whimsical poses, will attract plenty of browsers. Gillian Engberg
