Staff Reviews

Chris's June 2014 Staff Pick: What happens when two people each bring home and new pet and they have to share the only room available? And as we all know dogs and cats have a long history of not liking each other. This is their story of how to become friends.

The illustrations are so colorful and help tell the story so well.

— From Chris's Picks

Recommended by Aly: In this hilarious picture book the age-old battle, who is better: cat or dog, takes a whole new turn when a new “pet” is added to the house. Can Dog and Cat work together and get along or will the newest addition to Mr. and Mrs. Button’s home take over their room?

— From March 2016 Staff Picks


Dog and Cat do not get along. But when they're forced to share a room, they agree to be on their best behavior...until Dog won't stop sniffing. Cat won't stop primping. Dog won't stop howling. Cat won't stop scratching. And when it comes to the litter-box...sharing is not an option
What will it take to bring Dog and Cat together? Find out in Chris Gall's comic clash that brings out the best (and worst) in two very different pets.
