The dog who chased the cat who chased the mouse who chased the lady...who invites you into the story to see just who is chasing whom today.

Jessica and Lindsay have been chasing each other since childhood.
An actress in film and television, author Jessica Harper began composing and performing music for children when she started her own family. Her four award-winning CDs include three Parents' Choice Gold Award winners. "I'm Not Going to Chase the Cat Today" appears in musical form on her latest CD, Rhythm in My Shoes.
Jessica Harper lives in Southern California with her husband, their two children, and their dog, Lucy.From Publishers Weekly:
Every dog has its dayAand this one's a dilly. Getting up from his nap (taken in a bed in his own fully appointed room), a sportily dressed dog confidently announces, "I don't want to chase the cat today!" That most uncharacteristic statement gets the cat to thinking: "Now that you mention it I don't want to chase the mouse today," she adds, turning a cartwheel. Before long, the mouse is in on the act, vowing not to chase the lady of the house. And "because nobody's chasing nobody today," the whole group celebrates by sharing juice and cake. Making her picture-book debut, actress and children's performer Harper adapts this chipper rhyming ditty from an original song found on her most recent recording, Rhythm in My Shoes. The story is buoyed by a gentle silliness and features an almost-familiar scenario that allows young readers a knowing enjoyment of the fun. DuPont, Harper's sister and also a newcomer to children's books, provides ink-and-watercolor compositions that benefit from long, lean lines and a crisp palette. Her overly anthropomorphic animals and snappy sense of movement across the pages add to the goofy good times. Ages 3-8.
