Caldecott Honor–winning Hondo and Fabian are back!

The award-winning cat and dog duo returns for another set of adventures. This time, Hondo stays home while Fabian goes outside. Seen from a cat-and-dog's-eye view, an ordinary day is elevated to an exciting new level.

Peter McCarty's simple text and signature lush watercolor-and-pencil illustrations make it clear that wherever these two furry friends go, mischief is sure to follow!

Fabian Escapes is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
