Barron's Pet Handbooks - All books in this series

This most popular songbird among pet owners comes in a wide range of colors and varieties. Here is detailed information on canary housing, feeding, and general care. Books in this series are designed and illustrated much like Barron's Pet Owner's Manuals, but have more pages, even more photos, and more fully detailed pet care advice and instruction. Pet owners and people who plan to acquire a pet will find information on health care, feeding, and housing—and where applicable, on grooming and training. All photos are top quality and in full color. Many of the titles in this series also feature instructive line illustrations.
