From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-- As Ivory travels from Greek islands to Roman ruins to North Africa, she spies cats rolling in fragrant flowers, nursing kittens, stretching, and washing faces. The text is straightforward and personal, moving between these foreign cats and Ivory's own (of which there are 12) at home. The book has no continuous story line, but rather is a composite of individual scenes with the unifying theme of the title. It is the illustrations that lend the book its richness of experience. They are highly detailed, and the cats themselves are so real that one can almost feel the softness of their fur. Their stances and actions are true to life, and their faces are full of personality. The background scenes, too, are exacting, as Ivory makes full use of her ability to paint different flowers in all their natural glory. Granted, there is not much here other than a love of cats, but those with this affinity will find the book satisfying. --Martha Topol, Interlochen Public Library, MI

From Kirkus Reviews:

The illustrator of Cats Know Best (1988) returns with an album of cats seen watching Greek fishing boats, stalking butterflies in a flowering meadow, sunbathing on an ancient mosaic, etc. Travel from home in Britain to the sunny Mediterranean makes a tenuous theme, but the pleasant, conversational text is hardly needed. These meticulously observed, photographically detailed pictures of cats and kittens blissfully enjoying their several settings will delight cat- lovers of all ages.
