YA-The strength of these books is their stunning full-color photographs, all of which are distinct and well labeled. Both guides begin with general overviews of the title animals and then present the histories and characteristics of various breeds in alphabetical order, within logical groupings. Simon & Schuster's Guide to Dogs (1980) and Simon & Schuster's Guide to Horses and Ponies of the World (1988, both S.&S.) have more substantial texts, but their photographs lack the clarity found in these handbooks. Useful additions.
