Not really a story but retelling of a child's day. Very realistic and relatable. The character is very clever!

I really love the illustrations, the colors and the style. Looks like oils pastel and maybe acrylic paint? There is also watercolor. I love it. It is such a weet story about a boy making friends with two animals.

This book talks about a boy who makes friends with a cat in the neighborhood and the problems this cat causes and how the boy handles it.

like the picture and the story

I liked this book for a couple of reasons. I liked that the illustrator used a lot of different medias to use for them, making them stand out more and become more visually pleasing. Another thing that I thought was good was the plot. The writer put a lot of hidden jokes throughout the book such as the grandpa jokes, the bag joke, and the tallest dog joke. Another thing that I liked was that some pages had just pictures on them and I felt that this allowed for the readers imagination to open up and make up the story for themselves. The big idea that i got from this book was that one thing can change your entire day. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670885460, Hardcover)

On his way to hang out with the neighborhood kids, Archie very innocently greets a stray cat who follows him and gets in the way. The cat ruins everything - Archie's street show is a mess and his audience drifts away. But things aren't all bad: when Archie goes, the cat follows him all the way home, too!

Archie's day would have been great if he had not started it by greeting the new cat on the block.
