I spotted this at the library today and gave it a read, as it was one by this authur I'd never read before.

This was a fun story about an adorable cat who, once acknowledged, sticks around a little too long and causes some playful little trouble. Archie doesn't blame the cat, though, so it's all good. I loved the simple, creative fun he and his friends have. Reminds me of similar times. And it's so beautifully portrayed through the art in this book. What a treasure. ( )

Archie is trying to put on a show with his friend, Peter. On his way to meet Peter he sees a cat and says, hello. While putting on the show the cat ruins the shows by ruining the costume he was wearing. Both Archie and Peter were very disappointed. On the walk home Archie told Peter that he was upset that the cat followed him because all he said was "hi" to the cat. When he went inside the house Archie told his mother that he thinks the cat likes him. This books shows the process of Archie's anger turning into forgiveness because he understand that the cat was only trying to follow him because he likes him.

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.

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.
