What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Who says cats and dogs don’t get along? A snobby cat and a good-natured dog team up–sort of–to solve the mystery of a missing classroom pet in this playful illustrated chapter book told in letters. Simon the cat and Baxter the dog have finally learned how to share their owner, Andy. It helps that Simon lives with Andy’s mom and Baxter lives with Andy’s dad. When a problem comes up, they simply exchange letters to sort it out. Baxter’s spelling has even improved . . . though not by much. But then Andy’s class pet goes missing, which causes an argument with his friend Noah. Andy is so, so sad. Both Simon and Baxter want to solve the mystery and make Andy happy again. Which pet will collect the clues and piece together the solution? This funny and heartwarming collaboration between Geisel Honor and Edgar Award-winning author Dori Hillestad Butler and bestselling illustrator Kevan Atteberry is a tribute to the love of a good pet and the joy found in new friendship. With eight chapters and adorable full-color illustrations on every spread, the series is a perfect read for parents to share with kids.
