Special Note

Way back in 1997, when we were writing Chapter 1 of our first edition of this book, we were searching for a way to make the concept of JavaScript objects clear, and found inspiration in the then-newest member of our family, our cat Pixel. Over the years since then, countless readers have told us how our “cat object” helped them to understand JavaScript better. Pixel became the mascot for many of our books. In the Fall of 2013, after a long and happy life, we lost him to old age. We miss him very much.
