Andrew Murray knows that cats are tougher than they look. But just like Buddy the dog, he worries when his cats mysteriously disappear, and can't rest until they're safe at home. A children's bookseller in London, England, this is Mr. Murray's third picture book.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2--This story illustrates the adage, "absence makes the heart grow fonder." Lucy's pets, Chester the cat and Buddy the dog, fight like, well, cats and dogs. When Chester gets fed up with Buddy's bullying and leaves, Lucy is beside herself with worry. Discovering that he, too, misses the feline, Buddy sets out at night to find him. After meeting up with some threatening alley cats that become his allies, he is reunited with Chester, and the friends settle in cozily at home. Murray writes with a light tone and wry sensibility that perfectly matches the funky, bold illustrations that sprawl across the pages. The bright contrasting colors, big graphics, and an innovative design draw readers into the blocky, jazzy pictures. With simple lines, Slater creates unique personalities for her characters. Words and phrases that demand emphasis are rendered in larger bold type. This tale of two friends at odds and eventual evens is perfect for one-on-one sharing or use with groups.--Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI
