Katt vs. Dogg
The Dogg family have an excellent vacation planned at Western Frontier Park. Unfortunately, so does the Katt family, who are their mortal enemies. Thankfully, the park has separate facilities for both kinds. However, Molly Katt wanders off while practicing her acting skills, and Oscar gets lost chasing animals. When they are threatened by wild animals, the only thing to do is to put aside differences and help each other…at least until they can get back to civilization. Their parents, who are fighting with each other back at camp, would be appalled. But Molly and Oscar will have to forget their deep-rooted prejudices and perceived stereotypes, which may be more difficult than finding civilization again.
Grabenstein and Patterson make a terrific writing team, even if this one is a bit more blatantly preachy than most of their efforts. Using the various animal traits and stereotypes, they’ve crafted a story that tries to look past all that, employing puns and jokes to keep readers entertained. The accompanying illustrations have a graphic novel feel to them, providing a break from the steady text. Sadly, it seems to be a single release, so readers should enjoy it while it lasts.
