this book was a good book to use when discussing feelings. It tells about a dog always chasing cats and finally a cat chases him back and he did not like it. i gave this book 5 stars for its illustrations. They were really great and told the story almost as well as the pictures. I remember when a friend was bullied and she finally stood up for herself and the bully didn't like it. That, to me, is what this book represents. Not only could this book be used for talking about feelings, but pets. Many children have pets and if a pet has escaped or ran away you could use this story to come up with ideas about why their pet ran away.

I enjoy reading this book as much as my preschool kids enjoy listening to it. The illustrations are very well done. If you like Lynley Dodd books, this is a must-have, and if you aren't familiar with books by Dodd, this is a great one to start off with.

I picked my book up at a yard sale, not knowing what a treasure I had found for 10 cents. My three year old loves to read it every night, he can almost recite it word for word. I like the way it rymes, it helps keep the story fun. I would suggest this book for small children and I will be purchasing many more of the Hairy Maclary titles as well as other titles by Lynley Dodd.
