I Draw on Cats

This is a review of I Draw on Cats by A. R. Coffelt
I gave this book ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ 2 stars, I disliked it.

I Draw on Cats is a collection of connect the dots puzzles laid over top of silly cat photos.  It is designed to demystify cats and show us what they are really thinking and doing.  The cat photos are pretty cute and the connect the dots add a layer of humor to the photos.  We have silly cats from "The Karate Cat" to "Vampire Cat" hanging out in a tree to "Captain Cat" the super hero.

This book is a bit of a mixed bag.  There are cute photos.  There are humorous connect the dots.  I feel like it is going to appeal to small children the most.  The draw back with that is the weird accordion style pages.  The book doesn't have traditional pages, it has one giant double sided, accordion folded page.  The pages fold ok one direction but it gets complicated the other way.  Each fold is perforated so you could tear them apart but then you have a bunch of loose pages floating around or disappearing under the couch.

To sum up, it is a cute book with cute pictures but it is difficult to use and may prove frustrating.  My son lost interest in it pretty quickly when faced with the frustrating layout of the pages.

I received this book free from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
