Twins, a boy and a girl, are given two milkbone dog biscuits.

A very simple story about 4-year-old twins who eventually feed dog biscuits to a cat. The story ends with their father coming home and the twins' recapping the book for him. The father exclaims, "What a joke on Mother!"

In this book two twins are searching for a dog to give their biscuits to. When they can't find a dog they try giving their biscuits to a cat who actually ate it! I would use this story with students when talking about prediction.

Cats eating dog biscuits...mind blown. Cute picture book (it is from the chapter from the book Two Times the fun) and I am going to try to get a cat to eat a dog biscuit!
