A delightful story about the tense relationship between a dog and a cat, sure to make young readers laugh

This delightful story explores what happens when a cat is introduced into a family with a dog and the tumultuous relationship between these very different species. The dog and cat learn how to communicate with each other and live peacefully together under the same roof. Patience and self-control are the keys to forming a tender and loving friendship.


"Shen Yuanyuan's illustrations are offbeat and attractive, featuring solid human figures and plenty of compositional motion and humor. A provocative model of amity." —Kirkus Reviews
