If you love witty and charming books with absolutely adorable illustrations, about some of the most notable men in history, who were also very fond of cats, then this book is for you!

The covers are beautiful on this book and the pages throughout the entire book are equally beautiful.  There are 30 "Cat Men" included inside along with many quotes about the much celebrated cat on the pages by many recognizable names.  (Mark Twain, Ray Bradbury, Ernest Hemingway, Karl Lagerfeld to name a few!)  
 If the informative mini history lessons don't draw you in, then the drawings will. I was engaged the entire time reading.  The illustrations are really well done.  Great concept, well delivered. I look forward to more work from Sam Kalda. 

I rate this book a 5/5.  

This book would make a fantastic Father's Day gift for the cat loving man in your life!
