At 66 pages of mostly text, peppered with appealing illustrations by Jim McMullan, this book is most suitable as a read-aloud for an older preschooler or for a beginning independent reader. Meindert DeJong won the 1954 Newberry Award for the better known, and also excellent book, The Wheel on the School.
My children and I have soft spots in our hearts for animal stories, so we fell in love with this book! In particular, I love stories that feature unlikely friendships, such as the one between the cat and the dog in this book.
This is the second book by DeJong that we have read, with the first one being The Wheel on the School which was the winner of the 1954 Newbery Award. We enjoy this author!
The illustrations by McMullan are adorable!
MY RATING: 5 stars!! We loved it!!

Sweet, old fashioned but somewhat repetitive story with a gentle message.Published 2 months ago by Gail C.
A sweet book great for 2nd or 3rd grader readers. There are a few illustrations throughout and no chapter breaks. The story ends happily.Published on December 3, 2013 by H. Ping
I first read this book when I was 9 or 10 and it seemed like the epitome of tragic loneliness and ultimate redemption. And the illustrations of the cat are so cute!Published on November 14, 2013 by Adrienne
