Horn Book Review

Charged with watching the cats while the family is out, Dog scrambles to control the five felines as they wreak havoc in the house. Amusing retro illustrations include paneled inserts that allow multiple points of view and plenty of action, picturing the mischievous cats licking from kitchen bowls, toppling flowerpots, and generally making a mess while the food-centered canine bumbles his way to success.
