In a story brimming with sight gags, Gall (Awesome Dawson) mines a Cat and Dog’s odd-couple arrangement for laughs. The reluctant roommates meet when their human caretaker, Mr. Button, visits “the animal shelter to pick out a friendly-looking dog” on the same day Mrs. Button purchases a “smart-looking cat.” Like mismatched co-eds, the animals partition their shared space with dotted lines. Laidback, sports-loving Dog messily occupies a corner strewn with slices of pizza, while tidy, straight-laced Cat organizes a science lab and bookshelf with military precision. Their rivalry allows for pranks involving litter boxes, hairballs, high-pitched whistles, and catnip. At last they achieve détente, only to be startled by “a strange howling” that emanates from “the most terrifying creature had ever seen”—a human baby. Gall’s detailed colored pencil cartoons and the pets’ snarky hand-lettered remarks provide punch lines for the deliberately understated text. Dog and Cat’s interactions have a decidedly human bent, and their vexed situation will speak equally to young siblings and college freshmen. Ages 3–6. Agent: George Nicholson, Sterling Lord Literistic. (May)
