I took a kitty break and read this book. The book is pretty much what the title says: it's a collection of photos of cats wearing sweaters. In what has proven to be a seriously shitty 2016, grab this book to take a nice break. The book is organized into four short chapters:

  • Kitties getting snuggly
  • Divas: Ladylike Sweeties
  • Silly Sweaters
  • Holiday Sweaters
Each chapter has an introductory page, and then you get the cat photos. Each cat gets a two-page layout that includes cat name, a cute saying from the cat, and a cute fun fact along with a large photo plus some smaller photos of the cat in a sweater. You get a good variety of cats in the book. All photos are in full color, making this book a nice treat for readers of all ages. It is definitely a cute break from the world out there. It is a book that will bring you a smile.

5 out of 5 stars

This book qualifies for the following 2016 Reading Challenges:
