There are plenty of books about pet care and some about the evolution of cats and dogs. This very attractive offering covers both of these subjects and so much more. As the subtitle indicates, Keenan provides an overview of pets and their people. Beginning with statistics about pet ownership, the text goes on to describe how animals and humans came together (nicely delineated through the ages) and discusses how this relationship has changed and deepened. There are solid sections on cats and dogs, but Keenan doesn't forget about birds, rodents, lizards, and fish, among others. Eye-catchingly designed, the format uses Photoshop to best advantage, providing interesting graphics, popping borders, and plenty of pictures featuring adorable animals. An extensive source list, including periodicals and Web sites, will lead children to more. A terrific choice for animal lovers. Cooper, Ilene
