Author Helen Oswald and illustrator Zoe Waring created a story about the rivalry between cats and dogs called Cat and Dog. In the beginning, they are opposites: “Cat slept in the day,” “Dog slept at Night.” Every evening, they met for a “scrap.” The word “scrap” may need to be defined to American children since they may think “scrap” means food. Scrap here means an argument or fight.

“Evenings went by, and both Dog and Cat stood their ground.”

The argument grows greater in intensity to become the biggest one they’ve ever had. Each stands his ground. Will they ever resolve their fight, and if so, how? Will they change or learn to accept each other, although different, or not? Find out in this charming tale with loveable looking, although not necessarily acting, characters.
