"The instructions are accurate but also tongue-in-cheek ('You may be forced to give up other activities so you can stay home and pet your cat more,') but it’s the artwork that really makes this book utterly delightful. The illustrations are absolutely wonderful and you can’t help but smile your way through the entire book."
