This book is the first in a character-led series about these two irresistable and indomitable personalities.

Cat is trying to read a much-loved and classic children's fairy tale to Dog. Parents will sympathise with Cat as he suffers question after question from inquisitive Dog. Every once in a great while, a book comes along that combines story and illustrations so seamlessly and to such great effect that it looks effortless. This is such a book. Cat and Dog are destined to become a bestselling and recognised team; the Odd Couple of the book world.

"Every once in a great while, a book comes along that combines story and illustrations so seamlessly and to such great effect that it looks effortless. This is such a book. Cat and Dog are destined to become a bestselling and recognised team; the Odd Couple of the book world." The Guardian 'The humour is very funny throughout... The simplicity of the drawings and the laugh aloud dialogue will delight six-year-olds and upwards.' Irish Examiner 'A picture book which will be enjoyed by those with knowledge of fairy tales and the Little Red Riding Hood story in particular... The way in which the text is presented means that it could be read in class as a dramatic duologue.' CLPE 'Is this the longest picture book title ever? It certainly makes you stop and think - and the story won't disappoint...It's great fun and wonderfully illustrated with cartoon characters. Cat and Dog are set to become great favourites.' Parents in Touch '10/10 ...A novel & hilarious take on Little Red Riding Hood' Nayu's Reading Corner 'I'd be surprised if you can read this aloud without breaking into fits of giggles: I certainly couldn't. The combination of uncrushable characters, chucklesome text and spare, brilliantly expressive cartoon style illustrations with sparingly-used splashes of colour make for an unforgettable read.' -- Red Reading Hub
