Cat’s Around The World is a brilliant adventure around the globe from the comforts of home.
Spanning the world is no hard task for the cats in Ted Meyer’s Cats Around The World. Starting from the starry skies of space, out to the coast of Vietnam, Meyer’s brightly illustrated felines take you and a child on an unbelievable adventure. Through the use of vivid colors, simple drawing techniques, and a storybook tone, Cats Around The World offers fun filled facts about the importance of cats in every country. For example, did you know that there are about 53 million domestic cats in the United States? Or that the first Scottish Fold cat was spotted on a farm in Scotland, and her name was Susie? Not only do you learn little interesting tidbits about cats, but you’ll also see what the countries’ flags look like and where they are located in the map of the world.
The best part about the book, which is bound to bring about a good laugh, is what Meyer has his cats wearing. Dressed like the Montes in Canada and the mummies in Egypt, to the piñatas in Mexico and the Ying yang of North and South Korea, each cat represents something important to that particular culture, in that part of the world. Meyer offers a whirlwind of knowledge, and an amazing trip for any feline loving person, all in a pint size book. The exciting adventure begins on the following pages, but it’s up to you to discover where the cat’s trail ends.
