The second book in the "Kids' FAQs" series, with real questions from real kids. Like the first title, "Everything Dog", "Everything Cat" is not a typical reference book. It includes all kinds of questions gathered from kids all across the country and answers them in a matter-of-fact way. Why do my cat's eyes glow in photographs? Why did my cat bring me a bird she just killed? Why do cats like getting on top of the fridge? These are the kinds of questions kids have, and author and journalist Marty Crisp has carefully researched the answers and shares them here. Did you know that domestic cats all trace their roots back to Egypt? Did you know that a cat's hearing is more than twice as good as a dog's and five times a human's? Did you know that cats literally have a "sixth" sense? "Everything Cat" is full of facts and true anecdotes for young readers. Perfect for animal lovers or a fun research topic, "Kids' FAQs" books are for every kid who's always asking "Why?"
The paper-over-board Everything Cat: What Kids Really Want to Know About Cats by Marty Crisp, a companion to the author's Everything Dog, once again uses a q&a format to reveal the truth about these often mysterious creatures. Questions range from the practical, such as "Why do my cat's eyes seem to glow in photographs?" (answer: cats' eyes contain a special membrane that reflects light so they can see better at night) to the more speculative, such as "Do cats really have nine lives?" ("Maybe. Certainly some cats have amazing survival stories," answers the author before recounting a few). Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
