All Black Cats Are Not Alike
By

Rating
Every cat owner knows that no two cats are alike. This pitch-perfect illustrated book proves this simple fact by diving whiskers first into the unique personality, charisma and character of 50 real all-black cats. From Alfie, who "has no tolerance for wet humans or being ignored," to Sashi, who "enjoys freeze-dried chicken by candlelight and full-on body rubs," each cat comes to life through a lovingly hand-drawn portrait and quick-witted profile. Delightfully quirky and utterly charming, this motley crew of black cats will win over anyone with a dry sense of humour.

Reviews

"A hilarious illustrated personality profile of 50 real cats." -Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Gift Guide Pick --Hauspanther "This collection of true stories and hand-drawn illustrations fights the unlucky stereotype that all black cats look and act the same." -Parade ..".real, sometimes darkly hilarious" - The Huffington Post "As the weather turns cooler, you might want to cuddle up with a good book this month. We suggest All Black Cats Are Not Alike, which features profiles of 50 different black cats and what makes them unique." -PopSugar "Black cats are notoriously hard to photograph - they tend to show up in pictures as dark blobs with demonic glowing eyes, which, when combined with the whole 'unlucky' superstition, has led to a black cat majority in shelters around the world. And they're even harder to draw, which makes a new book, All Black Cats Are Not Alike, by writer-illustrator duo Amy Goldwasser and Peter Arkle, a true feat in the age-old tradition of cat art." -Hyperallergic.com "Lowbrow, Brilliant...delightful cat taxonomy." -New York Magazine, Approval Matrix "So fun and sweet.
