Without trying to sound too clichéd, I have to say this book is a true must for anyone interested in Man's Best Friend!
It is an interesting and accurate book with more dog breeds than most books make room for. Similar but different breeds such as the Norfolk and Norwich terriers and the King Charles and Cavalier King Charles spaniels are allowed their own separate entries and a handful of dogs are featured in full page photographs.
Each breen entry has information on the dog's appearance, characteristics, history, country of origin, size and coat colour, along with a diagram showing its size relative to the average human.
Fascinating information and useful facts are presented in a simple but unpatronising form in true Dorling Kindersley style.
Information on canine history, anatomy and life cycles is available in the front of the book. Useful facts about choosing, feeding, training and generally looking after a dog can be found at the back. The book has a contents page and a good index.
Use it for reference or for simply drooling over those gorgeous dogs (!) it's suitable for both.
Excellent for children and adults and thoroughly recommended.
