Bandit is a happy cat. He has an owner, Michelle, who loves him, a warm blanket, minced clams for dinner, and a fuzzy toy mouse. But when Mitzi, a new kitten, moves in and messes with Bandit’s stuff, Bandit feels threatened. "Paws OFF, purr-brain," he cries when Mitzi goes after Fuzzy Mouse. Will these two cats ever reach a purr-fect friendship? Bandit’s cat-titude comes to life in Vincent Nguyen’s vivid, retro, full-page and paneled illustrations featuring graphite pencil, ink, watercolor, and digital media.

When bandit gets a new kitten she is not too happy but when the kitten saves her she opens to the idea of someone new in her life. A cute story on how to always give someone a chance, which is great for a child starting school. I like the art style of the book as it is unique for picture books as it has split frames and close-ups like a graphic novel.
