Won Ton and Chopstick

A Cat and Dog Tale Told in Haiku

Lee Wardlaw; Illustrated by Eugene Yelchin

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Won Ton has a happy life with his Boy, until…

Ears perk. Fur prickles.
Belly low, I creep…peek…FREEZE!
My eyes full of Doom.

A new puppy arrives, and nothing will be the same.

Told entirely in haiku and with plenty of catitude, the story of how Won Ton faces down the enemy is a fresh and funny twist on a familiar rivalry.
