I'm Not Going to Chase the Cat Today: 05/07/10
>Wouldn't it be nice if everyone could just get along. That's the idea behind I'm Not Going to Chase the Cat Today! by Jessica Harper.
Instead of chasing the cat, the dog decides to dance. As the dog dances and gives the cat a day off, she in turn decides to ignore the mouse. The mouse then decides for the day to avoid harassing the woman who owns the house.
Through out the book the illustrations have a 1980s Fame dance theme with leg warmers, leotards and the like. I got the book for Harriet for the dancing dog and cat but the book isn't really about dancing. It would have been a better, stronger book if the dancing theme of the illustrations had been more centrally tied to the plot.

This sounds like a fantastic book and one that my children would love. Just reading your review of it made me laugh. I'll have to try to get a hold of it. Thanks for stopping by my blog through the blog hop!
