Chicken and Cat by Sara Varon

Cat has come to visit Chicken in the city, and they're both pretty excited about it. But Cat can only see the bad parts of the city: the mice, the crime, the dirt. Chicken really wants Cat to feel at home - but how?

This is such a fun book. I love the humour, like Chicken and Cat's bathing suits, the monkey in the row boat, and all of the details in the background. I could very well be reading too much into this, but when reading this, did anyone else think that Chicken and Cat are moving in together - like a couple? The jacket copy only refers to it as a visit, but I definitely got a feel of something more permanent, which kind of makes the resolution of the story even sweeter.

Find it at Indiebound.
