Dear Mamoru Suzuki,
I fell so in love with your last book “You Belong to Me,” that when I saw this one, I had to have it. The uber cute kitten on the cover was just added catnip. But wait, there’s an uber cute puppy in this one too. Ah, happiness. Once again the illustrations are wonderful while the story of total love for a child is comforting and heartwarming. B+
