This is a truly lovely book. It is winningly illustrated in black and white which makes it feel calm, un-rushed and peaceful. The language is simple yet engaging; for example: “It was a sun twinkling day.”
The story line is basic. A cat goes out to have a picnic lunch while a dog comes outside to read. They peaceably co-exist until the end of the story when they begin to interact.
So many children’s books are lively, bright and colorful. This one shows that there is room for books that are quiet as well. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this highly appealing book. The opinions are my own.
