A simple and appealing storyFletcher’s endearing, naïve illustrationshave a cheery, innocent effect. Preschoolers will enjoy this as an early, simple story, and its straightforward text adapts well to beginning readers. Teachers in the early-elementary grades will find the simple but clever text a worthwhile introduction to comparisons and a handy starting point for creative-writing activities. Fletcher’s first picture book is thoughtfully designed, with humor and a succinct text that will appeal to a broad age range. She is an illustrator to watch.”—Kirkus Reviews
The trim size, simple text, predictable story pattern, and obvious picture clues make this book a fine choice for beginning readers. A good start for a first-time author/illustrator.”—School Library Journal
A series of contrasting observations unfold (My dog barks. My cat meows”) and grow more complex. Despite the differences between the two animals, pleasing symmetries can be found in the opposing panels. The punch line is cute. [The] artwork and textare straightforward and clear. Very young readers sometimes crave the security of simple stories, and Fletcher has given them one.”—Publishers Weekly
