This is a great book about acceptance, of yourself, of others and in this case of your pet. Dolores learns that just because her cat is not like the new girl's cat, it doesn't mean he isn't special in his own ways. A great book about friendship and the illustrations are fun and comical too.

While I can see that the arrival of a new girl in the class who claims that her cat has all kinds of star qualities might arouse Dolores' jealous/rivalry, I think it far more likely that the two would become instant friends because of their mutual interest in cats. The whole story of how Duncan "saves" Hillary's cat Harold doesn't really make sense either. The whole plot seems weak to me. Only the ending makes sense! Disappointing.
Dolores has always been the cat expert in her class, but when Hillary shows up, this just might change. How can Dolores's fat and lazy cat, Duncan, possibly compete with Hillary's exquisite Siamese, Harold?

Good story about friendship and accepting people (or cats) for who they are.
Dolores has competition for being a cat-know-it-all when Hillary arrives in town with her Siamese, Harold. Cute enough for early elementary with a clear message of accepting others as they are (in this case accepting that her cat Duncan would never be Harold).
nice story, humorous illustrations support the story line; good read aloud for older audience (ages 5-7); themes: pets cats, school, show-and-tell
This is a great book that teaches the reader to be happy about who you are, &, consequently, happy about who your pet is.
Good book about jealousy resolution and compromise. I found this book to be very cute and very appropriate for 7-9 year olds.

Funny! Shows that fancy and sophisticated isn't always better.
