BOOK REVIEW

NON-FICTION
Released: Nov. 1, 1997

"Amory's simple point—that our treatment of animals should be governed by the rules of common decency and respect—is stated convincingly, with brio and great dignity. (16 pages photos, not seen) (Author tour; TV satellite tour)"

THE BEST CAT EVER by Cleveland Amory
NON-FICTION
Released: Oct. 26, 1993

"Not the best cat book ever—but R.I.P., Polar Bear. (B&W line drawings throughout)"
Fans of Amory's delightful cat books (The Cat and the Curmudgeon, 1990; The Cat Who Came for Christmas, 1987) may find this third and final volume in the series disappointing: It's really more a memoir of Amory's college days and writing career than an account of his famed relationship with his much beloved feline, Polar Bear.
