The Remarkable Friendship of Mr. Cat and Mr. Rat

( 1 )

Overview

Move over Tom and Jerry--there's a new cantankerous pair ready to tickle funny bones!

Mr. Cat and Mr. Rat have always enjoyed playfully torturing each other, so when Mr. Rat finds a package from Mr. C, he is understandably suspicious. But when it turns out to be a huge hunk of cheese (that isn't poisonous), Mr. Rat is thrilled and reciprocates with a nice gift for Mr. Cat. This leads to a string of gifts going back and forth, but the "friends" are always at least a little ...

Overview

Move over Tom and Jerry--there's a new cantankerous pair ready to tickle funny bones!

Mr. Cat and Mr. Rat have always enjoyed playfully torturing each other, so when Mr. Rat finds a package from Mr. C, he is understandably suspicious. But when it turns out to be a huge hunk of cheese (that isn't poisonous), Mr. Rat is thrilled and reciprocates with a nice gift for Mr. Cat. This leads to a string of gifts going back and forth, but the "friends" are always at least a little cautious each time they get a package. It's hard to tell when one might contain a not-so-nice surprise. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Mr. Cat and Mr. Rat live in the same house but they barely tolerate each other. Mr. Cat's dreams feature Mr. Rat cooked in a stew with plenty of spice. Mr. Rat, on the other hand, entertains fantasies of Mr. Cat packing his bags and moving away. One day a package is mistakenly left on their doorstep. Mr. Rat discovers it, assumes it is for him, and cautiously opens it—expecting one of Mr. Cat's usual pranks. Inside, he finds a huge round of cheese. Ignoring the fleeting thought that it could be poisoned, Mr. Rat eats one bite and then another. Before long he has eaten the whole thing and he feels great. Such a lovely gift requires a response. Mr. Rat places a wrapped package on Mr. Cat's chair. Mr. Cat experiences the same misgivings as Mr. Rat had, expecting a trick. But when he discovers a delicious ham, he eats every bite. After that, the two animals exchange many gifts. The last one is a big surprise. The colorful animals and minimal props appear on pages surrounded by pleasing white spaces. A fun story about friendship. Appropriate for read-aloud sharing.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Mr. Cat and Mr. Rat live together in mutual dislike. Mr. Cat dreams of cooking Mr. Rat and tries to trick him into taking cheese from a trap. The rodent locks the feline out of the house in the rain, dreams of Mr. Cat moving away, and, on another occasion, puts his nemesis's tail in the fire while he snoozes. One day, Mr. Rat mistakenly receives a gift of cheese that he thinks is from Mr. Cat, which changes his feelings about his adversary. The pleased rodent reciprocates with a ham. Many exchanged gifts and a lasting friendship ensue over the years-with the occasional surprise present. Walton's slightly formal prose with its singsong rhyming pattern softens the impact of the characters' less-savory thoughts and actions and is fun to read aloud. The detailed watercolor illustrations are filled with expressive body language and facial features; and simple backgrounds keep the focus on the action. McCue brings the text to life, including slightly unsettling pictures of Mr. Cat with his tail burning. All but the most sensitive children will be taken with this cat-and-mouse tale.-Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
