With a woof and meow and a bow-wow-wow, kids can bark along to this lively, luminously illustrated interactive picture book about a dog and the cat who befriends him.

A cheerful dog and kindly kitty
became friends true and rare.
Bark along to join the ditty
of this unlikely pair.

When the dog gets hurt and the cat helps him recover, the two become fast friends. And soon, the town is filled with the ballad of a hundred barks--and one small meow.
