I am the Dog I am the Cat
by Donald Hall
I am the dog.
I am brave as I bark to frighten the burglar disguised as a UPS man?
I sniff at fireplugs, telephone poles, fences, hedges, and other dogs, for I am the nose.
I am the cat.
I sleep all day in order to stay awake all night on mouse patrol?
The dog amuses me. He cares about what people think! I wash his muzzle.
The distinguished poet Donald Hall and the award-winning artist and designer Barry Moser have teamed up again to create a hilarious and affectionate portrait in contrasts of our companions, and often our best friends, a dog and a cat. With evocative words and masterful paintings, they have sought the essential dogginess and cat-like qualities that everyone who has ever known and loved a pet will recognize. Here is a book to delight readers of all ages.
