Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Feline friends Bud and Gabby are back! But this time--and much to Bud's dismay--there's a dog in the picture. The dog's name is Cookie, and although fun-loving Gabby enjoys Cookie's company, grouchy Bud does not. In fact, Bud gets so fed up with Cookie that he kicks her out of the house. "No dogs allowed!" he declares. But when a big black rain cloud approaches and Gabby looks worried, will Bud have a change of heart?</p> <p>Greeting card artist Anne Davis offers sly humor and bold, expressive art in a story that is pitch-purrfect in every way.</p>

Horn Book Review

Bud, a big orange tabby cat, begins conversationally: "You know, I don't really like dogs." He looks slightly cross, gazing out at the reader, blue crayon in paw. On the next page, we see why: Cookie the dog has shown up at the door. Cookie makes herself at home, and readers of an earlier picture book, Bud and Gabby, will remember that other folks sitting in Bud's chair is already a sore subject with our narrator. Black-and-white kitty Gabby greets the newcomer happily while Bud gets increasingly irked, finally making a new rule, written in crayon: "NO DOGS ALLOWED." The dog sadly leaves, but during a big storm, Bud and Gabby (after struggling with an umbrella) go out looking for her and bring her back home. The simple story goes straight to the heart of some very basic childhood fears of having a relationship in a family or friendship disrupted by a third party. Davis's paintings, with their bold colors and clear focus, give each animal its own distinct and engaging personality, which helps children figure out the emotions behind the story as it all comes to a satisfying conclusion. susan dove lempke (c) Copyright 2011.
