School Library Journal - 12/01/2022 PreS-2—After several days of rain, Pepper, Boo, and the Cat—12 paws total—are all excited to celebrate. The Cat shares their manifesto on the specialness of toys, smells, and more. Back inside, Pepper and Boo talk about their own special things, including being inside without the Cat—"HIGH PAW!" Indoor joy abounds until the two pups decide to join the Cat outside for "bigger joy" and, eventually, return indoors for a warm, cuddly ending. This third series entry deftly carries the humorous, cat-versus-dogs spirit of the first two books with abundant joy and colorful cartoon illustrations. Color-coded speech bubbles help aid in decoding, though the vocabulary and varied panel breaks may require a bit more reading fluency and format familiarity for emerging readers. VERDICT Joy-filled and reader-motivating, this easy breezy installment will fit nicely alongside "Narwhal and Jelly" books and the like. Read in any order. - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
