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.

Man I love picture books that jump up and surprise me. I grabbed this one at the library because of the cartoonish art and because of what the cat is wearing. Yes, because of the cat's clothes. The cool cat in this book has so much personality and panache, she seems ready to leap from the pages at any moment and dance her whiskers off.

The text is sweet, short and simple. A dog wakes up and decides not to chase the cat, who in turn decides not to chase the mouse, who in turn decides not to harass

A rather tedious little story about a dog waking up and deciding to not chase the cat. So... that cat doesn't chase the mouse and the mouse doesn't chase the lady. Not very engaging.

The illustrations weren't bad.

This was a cute picture book along the lines of "I know an old Woman Who swallowed a Fly". Colorful illustrations
