This is the second book about Gabby and Bud, two cats who are friends. In this story, Bud is jealous that Gabby shares with and seems to like the new dog, Cookie. Bud tries to snub Cookie, and leave her out of what he and Gabby are doing. Finally Cookie leaves. But it's raining and Gabby is worried. What will Bud do? I liked the story and especially the bright-colored illustrations. My favorite is on the page where it says "she [Cookie] sniffed everything" and then pictures Cookie sniffing Gabby ...more

A book about cats, dogs and friendship with bright, colorful illustrations. Cats Gabby and Bud live together harmoniously until Cookie the dog shows up at their door. There are an infinity of things that Bud does not like about Cookie - her manners and her big pink tongue to name a few. When Bud suggests dog-unfriendly activities for himself and Gabby, it becomes apparent that Gabby and Cookie have bonded. Nonetheless, Bud shows Cookie the door. And the two cats live happily together. Or are the ...more
I just was not impressed with this book. The illustrations are funky, colorful, and eye catching but the story itself...well, it was just ok.
This is a tale about not liking someone new at first and then changing your mind.

Good for preschool storytimes.
Bud and Gabby (a charming tuxedo cat!) have mixed reactions when Cookie the dog moves in. Bud is unwelcoming and eventually kicks the dog out; Gabby is welcoming and fond of the dog. The best part is when the cats don their rain gear, put up an umbrella, and go get that dog back. Cute and sweet, dog and cat loving kindergarteners and first graders will enjoy this story about cats and dogs becoming friends.

Bud and Gabby are two cats who live together peacefully until the day Cookie the dog shows up at their door. Gabby loves the dog and plays with her, shares snacks and a book. Bud is furious and makes a sign, "No Dogs Allowed." Cookie goes away but because Gabby misses her, Bud proposes a search and brings the dog home. This is a positive story about friendship and being a friend.

To put it simply, Bud the cat does not like dogs. Cookie the dog is exactly the kind of dog that Bud dislikes--she steals his chair, food and most importantly his friend Gabby. A cute story of friendship and inclusion.
Very cute. Deals with the issue of a new friend coming into the mix and the jealousy that one of the cats feels. Of course, it ends on the perfect note with all three animals becoming friendly and getting along in the end...
Rheta Thola
Colorful and bright pictures. Great story line of friendship and acceptance. Perfect book for the cat and dog loving child.
The bossy cat comes around when her feline friend has fun with a new dog. Pictures are bright and expressive.
A book about friendships, cliques, and making new friends. Cats and dogs living together; mass hysteria.
Cute, brightly illuustrated story about friendship between cats and a dog.
