Praise For Dogs and Cats…
Horn Book, Starred
A cleanly innovative design allowing interaction between the two parts throughout. Jenkin's usual striking collages of cut and torn paper create his subjects in all their textures. . . . The addition of icons at the bottom of each spread shows the other animal and gives one small, related fact, adding an element of interactivity that both teases and pleases. Sure to see plenty of use.
Jenkins is a master at presenting facts with style and clarity.
