Alice, the Cat Who Was Hounded: 10/12/07
From before Harriet was born, she has been fascinated by cats. So when I look for books for her, I look for books about cats. Alice, the Cat Who Was Hounded was a very lucky find on the library discard shelf.
Alice is a photographic picture book which uses humorous text and typographical treatments to tell the story of a fussy house cat who is forced to make friends with an eager puppy named Ralph.
The book is by far Harriet's favorite. It has a cat. It has a dog. It is a funny story and it is short. I have honestly lost track of how many times she and I have read Alice the Cat Who Was Hounded together. It must be close to a hundred times. Some days we read it a dozen or so times.
Alice the Cat Who Was Hounded is currently out of print but a quick online search brings up a few copies for sale. If you have a young child who likes cats, this may be one to add to your list of books to get.

PussReboots: Alice, the Cat Who Was Hounded
My mom used to read this to me alot when I was in elementary school back in the late 60's. She said I checked the book out all the time from the school library, lol. Good to see it's still around even though I don't really rem the details.

I'm not sure how around it is any longer. The copy I read was a discard from a retired teacher. The review itself is fourteen years old. Frankly even on this blog I'm not reviewing older picture books as frequently as I was back in 2007.
