About The Book

This bilingual picture book for the very young is a humorous look at the age-old battle of cats versus dogs that demonstrates how a simple act of kindness can turn an enemy into a friend.

Cat and dog live together, but they are not friends. They fight all the time, about everything. Then disaster strikes. Dog's beloved ball bounces up into a tree and is stuck. Cat's precious stuffed mouse falls into the pond. Dog can't climb. Cat can't swim. What are they to do?

Claire Masurel's simple text and Bob Kolar's bright, bold illustrations combine in this charming picture book that features text in both English and Spanish–perfect for ESL learners and bilingual families!
