Dog is smart. Dog is obedient. When his family takes a trip and leaves him in charge of the five cats, he figures they will all just SIT and STAY the whole time the family is away. But the cats have other ideas. Dog only turns his back for a moment--and the mischievous cats vanish. Dog has to find them and stop them from wrecking the whole house before their family gets home and tells him he is a BAD DOG for not doing his job. This is a darling book with a simple story and colorful pictures that will make even the youngest of preschool readers smile.
