Cool Cat, Hot Dog

Illustrated by Sandy Turner

I meow.
I bark.
I've got claws.
I've got paws.
I chase leaves.
I chase thieves.
It's the battle of the breeds when the family cat and dog start to spat over who is the superior animal. Like sparring siblings, when Cat says he's got fleas, Dog insists that his are itchier. If Cat is crafty, Dog is cunning. Cat can play the fiddle? Well, Dog can howl at the moon. Is there anything they both can agree on?

Sandy Turner has both a cool cat and a hot dog. His books include Silent Night, which won the BolognaRagazzi Award at the Bologna Children's Book Fair in 2002, and Otto's Trunk, a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book. He also does bits of art for the New Yorker and other glossy magazines under the name David Hughes. He lives in Cheshire, England.
