Hi guys, today I am going to talk about this beautifully illustrated book about cats by independant Australian author and graphic designer, Ciye Cho. This ebook was sent to me to have a read to and there is currently no physical edition of this book. Other words, it's a pretty new book of 2015. Let's get to the introduction and reviews, shall we?

PART 1: INTRODUCTION


Front Book Cover
About this book as the author described it:

THE ONE-OF-A-KIND CAT BOOK is a whimsical treat for cat lovers everywhere. Dive into its pages to meet Catalina the narcissistic movie star, Kit the steampunk genius, and Guillaume the macaron chef. Browse through letters, notes, and photos to learn about mystery cats from Svalbard and the Amazon. Follow a detective as he unravels the crimes of "Murder Kitties."
The OOAK Cat Book is a grown-up picture book full of modern themes: a shameless search for fame (or infamy), an obsession with true crime, and our constant need for adventure and kawaii cats. The felines here will guide you to places like Paris, Varanasi, Woodstock, and the Great Barrier Reef.

PART 2: REVIEWS

OVERALL PRESENTATION: In the ebook version, there is 127 pages, I will say 70% are illustrations. Its full coloured and features CATS, as the title implies. 

GRAPHICS: The graphics are gorgeous and captivating, featuring different arrays of cats designed and coloured in sleek sophisticated manner. I guess a lot of effort was put into generating such artistic and elegant illustrations.

Here are some samples from the author's gallery.











CONTENTS: There are about 16 subtitles in this books, each featuring short tales of different felines from all walks of life, adorned with delightful illustration of the story. From a narcissistic kitty searching for fame, evil cats taking revenges on humans, adventurous felines, and a chef cat of fanciful cat cuisine, this collection of puur-fect tales will do wonders to your imaginations.

One thing special about this book is, all stories comes in atypical formats. While there are some tales told via "magazine" and "letter", others are shown as short poems, "Ipad ebook", webpage and song lyrics. That's what makes this book so fun and entertaining to read. 

In addition to the unique story presentation, the short stories themselves, are charmingly written. These fictional feline tales each portray different themes as love,  adventure, mystery, comedy, obsession etc.  I like the fact that its not super hard to comprehend while its targeting grown-ups, and I bet teenagers and young adults would adore this book as well. 







My final thoughts: I would give this book a (4/5)

In conclusion, I am really pleased with this fictional-fantasy feline book, it was an indelible experience reading this one, the whole presentation is delightful and creative. It is one of the most beautifully illustrated books about cats and it is so pleasant to the eyes. This book has a certain depth of meaning to it. Cho included some pop culture elements into this book and brought out society morals with his respective feline stories. I do find some stories much shorter and simpler than the others, and some even leave you in suspense. Nevertheless, cat lovers would love this book to bits and it is a good addition to your feline book collections. Fun, witty, inspiring and sophisticated, I highly recommend this book to all of you, especially if you are a cat lover. I would really love to see this book being print out on solid papers physically, it would be an absolutely wonderful book and I wouldn't hesitate to buy one myself. Last but no least, I hope for more illustrated books to come from Cho himself.
