Copycat and a litter of other cats by David Yow

Reviewed by Patricia Gallagher 

Cute, clever, funny line drawings of cats, all accompanied by puns revolving around the word CAT.  Here is a great gift for your favorite cat lover with a sense of humor. Printed on heavyweight paper, with  clever dust cover drawing of two cats facing front, on the front, their backside on the back. A great coffee table book  guests will enjoy leafing through.
My favorite portrait is Catfight Battle of the Champions Miss Kitty vs Trixie, created like a colorful Fight poster.
All of David Yow’s cat portraits are based on a similar line drawing with photographic textures in the cat bodies and each cat is set into a photographic setting.  In real life he is a true cat lover once living in an apartment where cats were not allowed he had a life-sized cardboard cutout of a cat.
Another clever pun is Stray Cat, no cat, just a wall in the accompanying drawing. The beginning and end of the book are line drawings of a cat from the front and rear, just in case you want to color your own cat and add a pun.
