I received this book as a gift and so felt obligated to read it. Having read it, I feel honor-bound to review it, but this book is really outside my area of expertise and so I have asked my cat, Buster, to step in and write the review in my place. Her comments follow:

Found this book for a dollar at The Last Bookstore. Figured why not. It's really quite short (I think I read it in about half an hour or so) and it does answer some questions. It's really more a "gift" book than a serious treaty on why cats behave as they do. But they are a mystery animal and we love them, so - why not?

It was at the library book shop for $.50. Most of the stuff were questions and answers I knew already. Sadly, I still don't know why my cat is compelled to eat plastic bags and plastic shower curtains or how to get her to knock it off.

Well written. Index of questions and the answers are informative but short enough to hold a child's attention. Good book for elementary age child.

I found this book to be less informative than I wanted it to be. I was really quite curious to know why cats did some of the things they did, such as go crazy for catnip, purr, etc. but it didn't provide as I had hoped. But I did, however, rather enjoy looking at the adorable pictures. :)

I enjoyed this book because it helped me know what my cat was feeling and why she rolled on her back with her stomach up.

For a non-cat person great for basic info.
