Cute little poems, but others have covered the same ground better. I recommend it only for those who want a large collection of poems about cats. (And don't be surprised that the author is somewhat inexact about what a haiku is.)
Joseph Gustafson truely captures the essence of the feline world in this book. He is indeed a cat lover, and portrays, through haiku poetry, moments of wonder, surprise and fun that cat lovers worldwide understand and appreciate. I particularly liked the haiku form. It is clean and precise. Those of you unfamilar with poetry will not, perhaps, even recognize this as poetry. In any event, Mr. Gustafson does wonderful work. I recommend this book for all cat lovers. The price is right, also making it a great gift.
I liked a few of the poems, but they don't quite capture the "essence" of cats for me. The haikus lack the discipline of followng the 5-7-5 syllables format. The illustrations are nice.
