A number of well-respected reviewers on Amazon have recently posted 5-star reviews for “Cat Sayings: wit & wisdom from the whiskered ones“:
AND WHAT AN ABSOLUTE CLASS ACT THIS WORK IS!
August 16, 2012, By D. Blankenship
I just received and read this thoroughly delightful little book on the heels of my yearly reading of T.S. Eliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.” And what a great reading combination I now have. These two books will be shelved together and in the future, read together.
Feline Art and Words: For cat lovers and those who attempt to understand them
By Grady Harp
Brad G. Wheeler has curated an art and words spectrum devoted to Cats (not the capital C and you’ll get the gist of this book!). There is about as much variety of artwork reproduced on every page of this enormously entertaining book as is mirrored in the variety of excerpts of words from the ancients to the moderns. Wheeler wisely keeps the reader’s interest by dividing his book into chapters: Cats Rule, Wild Cats, Kittens, Humor, Of Cats and Dogs, The Cat Personality, Death of a Friend, Love Of, Cats Vs. People – each topic is generously illustrated with art and comments pertinent to each subsection.
Magnificent collection of feline art — a cat lover’s delight!!
By Rabbi Yonassan Gershom
Bradford G. Wheler has brought together in this book two of my favorite things: cats and art. There are full-color works by 60 different artists from 9 different countries. Some are fulltime professional artists, others are hobbyists, but all share a love of animals and, in a myriad different styles and media, have captured the beauty, mystery, love and whimsey of the cat. Add to this the wonderful collection of quotes about cats, and you have a book to savor for years to come.
Lovely book — essential for every cat lover
By Amy Walls “Gwen Walls”
First off, I must disclose that I love anything to do with cats. That being said, I’m often skeptical about overly cutesy books featuring them.
However, this book was marvelous, with a varied display of artworks featuring cats, lions, tigers, and other members of the panthera family. The quotes ranged from joy and blithe to mourning and sorrow.
The joy and intrigue of interacting with cats is captured
By Charles Ashbacher
No person that has ever “owned” a cat can read the quotes without nodding their head in agreement. The images are a mixture of photos and brushwork and are of high quality, most could be offered for sale as decorative pieces for residences and businesses. The book is a quick and amusing read where you remain tempted to go back and look at it again
Erika from Suddenly Books recently posted a review of Cat Sayings: wit and wisdom from the whiskered ones:
“I have to admit, although being intrigued by this book and getting my hands on a copy I was a bit hesitant but as a cat lover I just couldn’t resist it. Well, upon receiving CAT SAYINGS in the mail and opening it up, I immediately fell in love with it. I could not stop turning the pages to see the next piece of artwork and read the sometimes quirky, sometimes brilliant, and insightful quotes about cats.”
BookCollaborative.com founder Brad Wheler last week appeared on The Rude Awakening with Bulldog and The Dude, the morning radio show from WOCM 98.1 in Ocean City, Maryland, to discuss his most-recent book HORSE SAYINGS: wit & wisdom straight from the horse’s mouth.
Bob Etier recently posted this review of HORSE SAYINGS: wit & wisdom straight from the horse’s mouth on AllVoices.com:
Horse Sayings: Wit & Wisdom Straight from the Horse’s Mouth is a book to be treasured by horse lovers (as well as those addicted to quotations). It includes one of my very favorite quotations from one of my very favorite people: “I’d horsewhip you if I had a horse” (Groucho Marx), along with quotes from other famous people, art and photographs featuring horses, and horse cartoons.Horse Sayings is a fitting gift to give a horse-lover or the horse-lover in you (I’m very much in favor of giving myself a gift now and then).
