Dolores learns to curb some of her more smothering tendencies and wins the affection of her new pet cat, Duncan.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 Duncan and Dolores are both four years old. He is a cat; she is a little girl who would like to own him because "he's just my age." Unfortunately, Duncan isn't as enthusiastic about the partnership. And little wonder: Dolores is a miniature cyclone in action, and her boisterousness is odious to Duncan, who definitely does not want to play dress up or do tricks. Discouraged because Duncan seems to prefer older sister Faye, Dolores decides to ignore her cat, with surprising results. Samuels' watercolor illustrations, particularly Duncan's drolly dismayed face, are full of expression and wonderfully complement this rib-tickling story. Faye's deadpan asides as she tries to ignore the chaos will also elicit chuckles. This is a must for cat lovers, but even those who aren't aficionados will find this cat-astrophic tale purr-fectly delightful. Kathleen Brachmann, Highland Park Public Lib . , Ill.

From Publishers Weekly:

The heroines of Faye and Delores are getting a little older; Delores feels ready to take on the responsibility of owning a cat named Duncan. "He's just my age" is Delores's most persuasive argument. But Dolores's abundant energy and eagerness to be friends with Duncan prove a little daunting to the fat cat; he shows a decided preference for the more sedate Faye. Discouraged, Delores makes a hiding place of two chairs and a blanket, has a tea party with dolls Martha and Mabel (Duncan isn't invited), plays the piano (and doesn't even glance Duncan's way), works at her easel (her pictures aren't of cats). Finally Duncan makes an irresistible overture of friendship and puts his chin on Delores's neck at bedtime. It's a funny first lesson in playing hard-to-get, and Samuel's quirky insights into the siblings' daily lives should have a lot of sistersand brotherslaughing.
