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!
