Hightail it to a deserted island where no can find her. .... Or can they? The perfect balance of humor and absurdity. And keep your eye out for a pretty-darn-cute jogging platypus, too. --Elese
A delightfully silly picture book highlighting the differences between cats and dogs, Cat Dog follows a cat who is busy chasing a mouse around the house, while the dog...stays asleep all afternoon. A quirky, entertaining book for all cat and dog lovers. --Jennie
