The Cat Barked?The Cat Barked? 08/13/09

If you have more than one child or have a brother or sister, you'll understand sibling rivalry. The Cat Barked by Lydia Monks is the story of a cat who wants to be dog.

The cat sees the dog of the family going out for walks and doing basic dog things and decides that he has the ideal life. Being a dog means freedom. Dogs are cooler than cats.

The owner of the cat and dog explains to the cat all the pros of being a cat. The cat then learns all the wonderful things that a cat can do. Unfortunately for the owner, the dog was listening to this heart felt conversation.

The illustrations in The Cat Barked are bold, bright and simplistic. The cat is a neon orange tiger cat and the dog is a black terrier of sorts. The pictures are similar to those in Nick Bruel's books.

For my two kids The Cat Barked is a perfect story. They are very different people (as they should be) but want to do everything together. This can cause arguments when one wants to do something that the other hates.
