Charise Mericle Harper (Crafty Cat, Just Grace, Fashion Kitty) delivers another hilarious and charming early graphic novel series starring Pepper and Boo, two darling dogs, and their suspicious housemate, the Cat.
Pepper and Boo are two dogs who like to have fun. The Cat likes to have fun, too, but cat fun is very different from dog fun. Cats can have fun with a newspaper, a bottle cap, an ice cube, and some boxes. Dogs like to have fun by chasing leaves, biting sticks, and licking the grass.
That's not the only way cats and dogs are different. The Cat explains while Pepper and Boo try to find coats so they can go outside on a rainy day. With the perfect coat, cats and dogs can all have fun outside together.
Harper cleverly shifts point-of-view between the Cat and two dogs, creating laugh-out-loud moments through her text and art that younger readers will want to return to again and again.

"Harper's artwork, composed of simplified backgrounds and cartoon-cute characters with comically big expressions, is well-suited to the early reader format.... an easy pick for emerging readers."—Booklist
"With a keen sense of pet psychology, Harper presents the two dogs interacting mostly with each other via speech balloons and Cat addressing readers directly with an extremely opinionated and funny monologue. A realistic slapstick tribute to the differences between cats and dogs."
"Readers will be giggling as they follow the trio in their pursuit of a way to have fun, rain or shine."—SLJ
