Dogs by Emily Gravett

You've heard that dogs are a man's best friend. Well, they can be a cat's best friend, too, as long as they don't chase him.

What I thought: I love dogs, too. I can relate to the cat's point of view. I love that the narrator is a cat, but we don't find out until the very end. The illustrations are nice. The colors are muted and the dogs are so realistic I almost petted them. My favorite illustration is the basset hound (slow dogs). I was disappointed that Gravett didn't include a Boston Terrier in her tribute to dogs. My mom loved the Great Dane. She owns two--a Blue one named Blue and a Fawn Merle named Ginger.
