Charise Mericle Harper (Crafty Cat, Just Grace, Fashion Kitty) delivers another hilarious and charming early graphic novel series starring Pepper and Boo, two darling dogs, and their suspicious housemate, the Cat.

Pepper and Boo are two dogs who like to have fun. The Cat likes to have fun, too, but cat fun is very different from dog fun. Cats can have fun with a newspaper, a bottle cap, an ice cube, and some boxes. Dogs like to have fun by chasing leaves, biting sticks, and licking the grass.

That's not the only way cats and dogs are different. The Cat explains while Pepper and Boo try to find coats so they can go outside on a rainy day. With the perfect coat, cats and dogs can all have fun outside together.

Harper cleverly shifts point-of-view between the Cat and two dogs, creating laugh-out-loud moments through her text and art that younger readers will want to return to again and again.

Full-color illustrations.

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Rainy weather presents a problem for dogs Pepper and Boo and an unnamed cat. Boo tries enthusiastically to convince the reluctant Pepper to join him outside; meanwhile the cat shares feline facts and provides comic relief (getting their head stuck in a jar, confessing that they sometimes even have fun with, gasp, dog toys). This beginning reader graphic novel uses varying sentence structure and simple repetitive words. The shifts in perspective between the dogs and the cat provide natural pauses, making this an excellent choice for reading in a group. Pepper and Boo's dialogue is placed in color-coded speech bubbles; the cat speaks in plain text on a white background. The comic-style illustrations are reminiscent of "Narwhal and Jelly" or "Pizza and Taco" and feature color-filled line drawings on mostly plain backgrounds. VERDICT Readers will be giggling as they follow the trio in their pursuit of a way to have fun, rain or shine. Purchase where "I Can Read" books are in high demand.-Laken Hottle, Providence Community Lib.
