THE STORY OF MY COUSINS: Brief Animal Biographies. By Henry S. Salt. 70 pp. Watts.
It is possible to divide human beings into many categories, and the classification which puts real cat-lovers on one side and the unappreciative on the other has something to be sold for it. Mr Salt’s “Cousins” are mostly cats; any child, or, for the matter of that, grown person who is one of the faithful will delight in reading about them, though he will probably feel that he could relate even more interesting stories of his own cats. Those who are outside the charmed circle may be wearied. It shocks us to think of it; we cannot gauge their heretical feelings. This slender volume is attractively illustrated, and will please almost any right-minded child.
