Today we are looking at the book All Black Cats Are Not Alike by Amy Goldwasser and Peter Arkle:
Every cat owner knows that no two cats are alike. This pitch-perfect illustrated book proves this simple fact by diving whiskers first into the unique personality, charisma and character of 50 real all-black cats. From Alfie, who “has no tolerance for wet humans or being ignored,” to Sashi, who “enjoys freeze-dried chicken by candlelight and full-on body rubs,” each cat comes to life through a lovingly hand-drawn portrait and quickwitted profile. Delightfully quirky and utterly charming, this motley crew of black cats will win over anyone with a dry sense of humour.
Our over-all verdict? We LOVE it! This book is filled with fun little stories of the various personalities of black cats around the world! It proofs that all cats are different (not that we all didn’t know this yet!) 🙂
And of course at times it’s just absolutely hilarious. 😀
