Each O'Reilly series has a theme. For example, the Java books are cats, the Oracle books are bugs, and the Mac books are dogs--for loyalty, not for "running like a dog". The animal theme for Mac was set long before Jaguar made it clear that Apple was moving to the cat codenames.

Ah well, I'd love to have a running panther on the cover of my next book. But, that's not my choice. :)

    While this *might* be true for the core books (Learning X, Programming X), it in no way is true in general - Java Cookbook has a chicken on the cover for instance.

      Actually, the Cookbook series as a whole is considered to be different than the Java or Perl series. The rules aren't concrete. (grin)
