K-Gr 2–A winning follow-up to See the Cat, and a counterpoint of the previous title with three stories about Cat trying to take the role of Dog due to illness. Cat has his own take on some canine activities (for example, digging is not good for the nails or fur in Cat’s opinion). Gouache illustrations capture the hilarity and readers will enjoy the three vignettes that provide a complete narrative arc of Cat’s day subbing in for Dog.
VERDICT Using simple language, humorous speech bubbles, and laugh-out loud funny illustrations LaRochelle has another winning early chapter book that readers will enjoy having read to them as well as conquering on their own.
