Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In evocative haiku, Michael J. Rosen depicts twenty different breeds of cats-whether mischievous or mysterious, comical or commanding.Some cats have names that suggest far-off lands, like the Turkish Angora and the Norwegian forest cat. Others allude to places closer to home, such as California's ragdoll and the Maine coon. Set against Lee White's graceful illustrations, with intriguing facts about each of twenty breeds at the end, this charming haiku collection for lovers of America's most popular house pet provides the purr-fect book to curl up with.

A collection of haiku captures the special chracteristics and personalities of twenty popular cat breeds, including the Maine coon, the Turkish angora, and the Norwegian forest cat.

Horn Book Review

Alternating between "Inside" and "Outside," each poem's title is simply the breed name--Maine Coon, Japanese Bobtail, Scottish Fold--while the haiku captures its essence. Each poem is paired with digitally created illustrations with light touches of collage, patterns, and playful scratched lines. An appendix gives additional breed information. (c) Copyright 2015.
