Life is grand for Buster the dog until Betty the kitten enters his life. Buster is afraid of cats and doesn't like having her around, but after some major drama, Buster learns to appreciate her. Funny and full of Fleming's trademark full page colorful illustrations, kids will love this one. Appeal for a broader range too, i think. k-3.
