    The title says it all. If you've ever had a cat, you know how they can tug at your heartstrings and make you wish you'd never laid eyes on their cute fuzzy behinds, all AT.THE.SAME.TIME. ...

    We have two cats that could absolutely be the models for the funny story! I loved loved loved the illustrations here. I think it might be a book adults with cats appreciate more than kids will although the illustrations and the situations will make anyone and everyone laugh. ...

    A tale of two kitties (make that two tails.) A cat owner laments his companions' quirks but we all know he loves 'em! ...

    Oh, the joys of sharing your living space with cats! The title had me worried since I know quite well just how annoying felines can be, each one with its own habits and requirements. But I need not have been concerned since it's clear from the text and the illustrations that these two ...

    I read this book at the Chronicle booth at ALA and had to go back the next day and buy it for my husband. It's like the author and illustrator captured our (especially Jacob's) life with our cats! The illustrations are very cute and expressive. Loved it! ...

    If you have ever had a cat, you can relate to this book. ...

    The cats are utter charmers, full of purrsonality and lovingly illustrated, but preschoolers may be aghast at the narrator saying that he hates them. Best for older kids who can get the nuance and would make a good gift for beleaguered adult cat owners. ...

    Only cat parents will truly understand this book (and the cats in it). I'd give this book 5 stars, but only 4 because of the illustrations where I've yet to find mint leaves that closely resemble poison oak leaves and rose leaves that resemble alder leaves. Once I make those discoverie...

    Thanks to the publisher for the review copy. All opinions are my own. New favorite picture book alert! (For me and the kids! This book is a cat lover?s dream. The cats, Fred and Ginger, behave in universal ways such as tipping over vases, sleeping in the sink, and stepping on t...

    On one hand, this book is very funny for adult cat lovers. The illustrations are a delight, and you know exactly what the author is trying to say. Yes, there are times when cats are supremely annoying, and you can get angry with them, in the same way a parent might be angered/annoyed b...

    You do not have to own cats to appreciate the very different personalities of the cats in this book. Their antics and attitudes are mostly appreciated and tolerated by the main character who is the storyteller. The illustrations by Anna Pirolli bleed love on the pages as the cats give ...

    Ginger and Fred are two kitties who couldn't be more different. Ginger is energetic, eccentric, and playful. She likes mint, shoes, and drinking from the bathroom sink. Fred is a lazy black cat who loves to sleep on the white towels, or in the sink, or on the newspaper his pet human is...

    I Hate My Cats (A Love Story) presents the tale of Ginger and Fred, two peculiar cats that drive their owner to serious frustration and distraction. Readers get to meet Ginger, an appropriately ginger tabby cat, first: the "weird one" with large green eyes, who "likes mint and chicken ...

    LOVE these illustrations! They?re the perfect style for a kitty picture book. The story is simple, too simple at times I thought, but still a cute way to show why is cat people love cats so much despite all the trouble they get into. ...

    This was a pretty cute book. It?s a little aimed at a tad bit older audience, as it comes across as funny but in a sentimental sort of way that younger kids may not fuller understand. Davide Cali is one of my favorite picture book authors, and I think he does a fabulous job of writin...

    This is why I love cats...but only if they belong to someone else or live outside. I love how they purr, I love how soft and cuddly they can be, I love how playful they sometimes are, but I hate how they think they own the world and everything in it. If you were to ask them, they would...

    I agree with the reviewer who wondered about the audience for this book. A pretty sophisticated older child might get the joke, but younger readers will be puzzled, particularly by the expression on the main character's face on the last page. If he was smiling, or cuddled up with his c...

    From the writer who brought us When an Elephant Falls in Love, Cali returns with a richly-illustrated ode to love in the form of his humorous relationship with his two cats: Fred and Ginger. There is much humour here in the exasperation of the owner and the differing actions of the two...
