As you may already know, Little Sister’s favorite animal is dogs. She loved this book because it’s a cute story about a dog who is lonely and wants to be friends. Cat didn’t realize it at first with the first half of the story showcasing Cat’s annoyance with Valentine’s Day and his new neighbor in a funny way. The illustrations are cute and made Little Sister giggle.
Cat does NOT like Valentine’s Day. It’s much too mushy, and no way is he making anyone a valentine—especially not his new neighbor, Dog. Dog refuses to respect the fence: He keeps tossing over old bones and hitting Cat in the head! But just as Cat’s about to send Dog an angry “valentine” telling him exactly what he can do with his bones, Dog throws a ball over the fence. What is Dog playing at? Cat is in for a hilarious—and heartwarming—surprise in this story about being perhaps too quick to judge. – Penguin Random House
