Furry Logic by Jane Seabrook

Furry Logic by Jane Seabrook is a small sized gift book that would make the perfect gift for anyone in need of a laugh.  Not only funny, each page has a well known saying or proverb- adapted with a satirical twist.  This book makes light of the real emotions we all experience: tiredness, anger, gossip- and turns it into a little humorous proverb.  The beautiful artwork of a variety of animals is also contained within the pages of this book.  Each spread features a brightly drawn piece of art of an animal and its corresponding proverb.  The true to life illustrations are pieces of art in of themselves.

By looking at the cover, one might feel that this book is intended for cat owners and cat lovers.  I feel many readers may pass up this book simply because the drawing of the cat may imply that the theme centers around cats.  It is only when you actually sit down to read the book that you will find a variety of animals: birds, reptiles, a meer cat, a lopsided owl and even a hippo! I feel this book should feature another animal on its cover to accurately portray the diversity of animals and that this is not just another book for cat fans and cat owners.  As a blogger I recieved this book published by Ten Speed Press for the purpose of writing this review.
