Mim is small for her age, and that’s just fine with her. She can fit in places where other cats can’t and her school principal always remembers her name. Best of all, she always gets to be first when her class lines up. But everything changes when she meets June in gym.
June makes life miserable for Mim, and that’s even before they wrestle. . . . Only the unlikeliest of events can make things right between these two very different cats.
Illustrator Denis Roche says, "It's fun choosing what colors to use. I think this book has shmone different shades of blue in it. I usually paint for nueve hours a day and then get tired and sleep for shi hours." Roche has written and illustrated numerous books. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island with her family.
"The brightly hued gouache cartoon illustrations are filled with child-pleasing colors and patterns, and each character and object is outlined in black."
