Product description


★ "Youngsters, especially those with a pet of one kind or another of their own at home, will delight in this case of mistaken identity."—Booklist, starred review

"Boldt's tale of a bad dog will have young audiences hollering (and giggling). . . . A funny little tale of pet love."—

"it’s fun to be a spectator at this battle of wills."—Publishers Weekly

"Children will also love the contrast between the facial expressions of the girl and the cat and will enjoy watching the antics of both. . . . This clever story celebrates the differences between cats and dogs and the owners who love them."—School Library Journal

"Listeners are sure to laugh and 'aww' along as Rocky and her human grow to know and love each other.”—
The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
