Summary: Hudson the dog and Tallulah the cat may be neighbors, but they could not be more different. Hudson loves to dig, eat garbage, and play with other dogs at the dog park, while Tallulah prefers keeping clean and keeping to herself. But when the two of them spot a puddle full of birds, the chance to chase and play is irresistible for both animals. Soon they discover a few more pastimes they both enjoy, and by the end of the book, a friendship has been born. 40 pages; ages 3-7.
Pros: The team that produced the Geisel Award winning You Are (Not) Small has created a new book for early readers told through the illustrations and simple dialogue. Kids will recognize and appreciate the dog-cat differences and enjoy being able to try out their new reading skills.
Cons: This felt like it would have worked better in the traditional early reader format rather than as a picture book.
