“After browsing the newspaper's pet ads, Cat is happy to join his friend Chicken's new cleaning business in the hopes of saving up some money for a new pet. Unfortunately, as much as Cat tries to help, he is just not cut out for the cleaning business! This endearing tale is told without words but the pictures - done in a style that reminds the reader of a comic strip - tell a clear story.”

Sara Varon follows up on her irresistible CHICKEN AND CAT with a new tale about the fabulously sweet and charming duo.

When Chicken starts his own housekeeping business, he hires Cat to help him out. It's tough going at first. No matter how hard Cat tries, he is clumsy and keeps making mistakes, which causes Chicken to be upset and Cat very sad. Finally Cat listens to his inner-species calling when he bravely catches a mouse thief. The two friends make amends and decide to start a brand-new business called Chicken and Cat's Housekeeping and Mousecatching Services. This story about friendship and listening to one's heart is perfect for friends new or old.
