Pinkerton, the Great Dane, needs a friend. So his human brings home a kitten named Rose. They should be great friends, but Rose has her own ideas! She begins to behave like the big dog and Pinkerton gets confused and begins to behave like a cat!
I really like Steven Kellogg's illustrations! His pictures are really good and funny. That's where the enjoyment comes from for me. The words are pretty simple. It is easy and fun to read for a younger reader. It might be boring for older readers (like me!). I give the pictures a 9 and the words only a 3, so it averages out to a 6. This is a great book to read to little brothers and sisters, but not so great for older ones.
