I need this puppy
like I need more rats

Jealous? Me?
Well...maybe a little. My people got a new white puppy named Chomps. That's because he bites at everything, especially flies. What could a gray cat -- me -- want with a Scottish terrier, anyway? The little nipper got into some trouble with the big rats in the barn.See more details below

Overview

I need this puppy
like I need more rats
in the barn!

Jealous? Me?
Well...maybe a little. My people got a new white puppy named Chomps. That's because he bites at everything, especially flies. What could a gray cat -- me -- want with a Scottish terrier, anyway? The little nipper got into some trouble with the big rats in the barn. It was partly my fault. So...I had to save him. Problem is, now I can't get rid of him. What am I supposed to do with a dog who's determined to get himself into trouble?
When my mockingbird pal, Flea, came home for the spring, I thought she could help me train the little furball. But all she wants to do is build her nest. Chomps needs to learn how to hunt. But how can I teach a dumb dog that an opossum is not a rat, and a skunk is not a kitty? Even worse, how can I keep him from turning Mama's fancy new car into a muddy mess? Nothing but trouble. I just thought I knew what trouble was. But now Mama is in danger...This is serious. Talk about trouble...

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Cat lovers have long known that in the realm of cats and dogs, cats rule. This is the third in a series about the animals, domesticated and wild, living with a farm family. Gray Cat, or Gray, is sassy to the other animals, and subservient (mostly) to the House People. Typical cat. The story centers on Gray's adjusting to Chomps, the new white Scottie puppy. Eager to please the cat, Chomps tries to hunt mice, cat-fashion. Both wind up in trouble that result in a trip to the groomer, but unite when House Mama becomes caught in a flood and needs their help. Unfortunately, the story suffers from a slow beginning, thin plot and sluggish narration. The accompanying pen and ink drawings are awkward and cutesy. Younger readers who love humorous animal stories may enjoy this book. Older readers will be asleep by page three. 2001, Minstrel Book, $4.50. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer:Candice Ransom
