Booklist Review
Is the short-haired Syrian hamster the pet for you? How about the Belgian Hare? Look no further than the splashy pages of these entries in the new Pet Pals series. Starring one of five favorite fluffy companions, installments break down basic anatomy, available breeds, training tidbits, playtime essentials, etc., into 12 factoid- and photo-filled double-page spreads. Cat Pals chronicles the feline's evolution from ancient Egyptian protector to hunting machine. As instinctive hunters, cats are carnivorous but they still spend up to 16 hours a day dozing. With appended quizzes, glossaries, and further resources, this sprightly series will have animal-adoring youngsters and reluctant readers alike reading, repeating, and taking local pet stores by storm.--Shemroske, Briana Copyright 2017 Booklist
