Kindergarten-Grade 1–Langdo has created colorful, cheerful new illustrations for Minarik's Cat and Dog
, originally published in 1960. The text seems a bit dated as Dog threatens to make a catball, a catcoat, and a catpie out of the feline, and Cat cautions the pup against playing in water and roaming the garden, but finally the two pets happily dig up bones together until they are called in for dinner. Today's emerging readers will find more fun and better use of language in Alyssa Satin Capucilli's Biscuit series (HarperCollins) and Mary Labatt's Sam books (Kids Can).–Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
