Cats of Velvet: Tales of Silk - Maria Mitchell This book was so much fun to read. It is a children's book which centers around the adventures of Bizco the cat, but anyone who has ever owned a cat will enjoy it. I love the way that Mitchell has captured the personality of a cat perfectly, or as Bizco would say, purrfectly. As he details his life and adventures with his friend Twinkletoes, I could picture my own cat, and the cats of many of my friends, saying and doing the same exact things.

At just 85 pages this is a quick read, but I think many children, and some adults (especially those familiar with cats) will love it.
