"Your first rabbit" is a great book for anyone planning to get a pet rabbit, especially children/teens. It has lots of lovely pictures and basic care instructions.

Beauty without the Beasts :: Heather Chase


Not exactly about pets, but the author or someone appears on the cover holding a pet :)  It is about leading a cruelty-free life by embracing vegetarianism and avoiding products and materials that are made from animal products.
