Else Holmelund Minarik is well known for her I CAN READ Books about Little Bear and his friends. She has now written a story for the child who has finished only the first half of the first grade, and who needs a simple book, yet one filled with action and fun.
CAT AND DOG is just such a book. The cat and the dog are all cats and dogs, and children will delight in their antics. Whether the dog is chasing the cat, or the cat is urging the dog on to feats of mischief, the result is hilarious.

Fritz Siebel was born in Vienna and now lives in New York City with his family. He is well known for his pictures in Cat and Dog; David and the Giant; and Tell Me Some More . . . , all Harper I Can Read Books. Among the other books he has illustrated are A Fly Went By and Who Took the Farmer's Hat?From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 1–Langdo has created colorful, cheerful new illustrations for Minarik's Cat and Dog, originally published in 1960. The text seems a bit dated as Dog threatens to make a catball, a catcoat, and a catpie out of the feline, and Cat cautions the pup against playing in water and roaming the garden, but finally the two pets happily dig up bones together until they are called in for dinner. Today's emerging readers will find more fun and better use of language in Alyssa Satin Capucilli's Biscuit series (HarperCollins) and Mary Labatt's Sam books (Kids Can).–Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
