"This simple tale of cat vs. dog, told from the feline's perspective, is illustrated in a childlike style, with bold swashes of color, loops and squiggles for shading, and thick lines. VERDICT A short and silly pet tale sure to please young pet lovers." —School Library Journal

"The orange kitten hops into bed right next to the blue dog. “Purrfect.” Singleton’s minimal text, narrated entirely by the cat, is well-matched by Martin’s bright illustrations, whose simple yet evocative shapes might have been drawn by a child, although their juxtaposition with the wry text yields lots of funny subtext." —Kirkus

"There are many picture books on the market that deal with serious issues, it was nice to come across this clever book that offers kids (and adults) a chance for a friendly debate and an opportunity to be silly." —Picture Book Playlist
