FOLLOW UP TO HUGELY SUCCESSFUL FIRST BOOK: Nicola’s first how-to book, How to Give Your Cat a Bath, sold incredibly well and got great reviews from PW, NYT, SLJ and a starred review from Booklist.
EXCITING NEW ILLUSTRATOR, SAME DESIGN: This book features Zoe Si, a frequent cartoon contributor to The New Yorker and up-and-coming children’s book illustrator.
HILARIOUS CONTENT: This book has the same meta, tongue-in-cheek style and deadpan humor, with the addition of a dog foil who does the trick every time.
SWEET ENDING: The cat does eventually do the trick — lying down — all on his own, with the dog and the boy for company.
DIVERSE CHARACTER: The main character is a person of colour.
MULTIPLE MARKETS: Great for trade, gift and institutional markets.
“[A]n air of classic Sunday comics…. Droll humor at its best for both dog and cat lovers.” —Kirkus Reviews
“[A] funny, sweet story that highlights what all cat owners know: cats will do what they want, when they want.” —CM Reviews
