Rated 5 out of 5 by from Q&A with great photos and info about cats For grades 1-3, 48 pages. Good quality photos and clear info. My kids especially enjoyed the information about why cats bring dead things to their owners as gifts. :o) Straightforward, easily read facts that are sometimes humorous. The author/publisher chose questions we wanted answers to, so this was a good read that helped us understand our 2 cats.
