Booklist - 02/01/2020 In this epistolary tale, Arfy the dog tells his story through his diary and letters. One day, smelling something unusual, he discovers a kitten hiding in a drainpipe. Arfy can’t invite the kitten to live with him as his “person” has a cat allergy, so the pup writes to his neighbors in his quest to find Scamper a home. His first letter convinces the music teacher to take the kitten in, but the tabby’s love of singing causes too much disharmony during music lessons. Though Arfy’s letters convince several others—a mechanic, a talent agent, a collector of cat paraphernalia—to adopt Scamper, the small gray feline isn’t welcome anywhere for long. Then Scamper’s missive to Arfy, written in sidewalk chalk, gives the dog an idea for the perfect home. Large, brightly colored illustrations tell the bulk of the story, and the written correspondence appears in a variety of typefaces. Children will get a kick out of articulate Arfy’s thoughtfulness in securing a place for Scamper and be satisfied with the kitten’s forever home. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
