Synopsis

Copy Cat by Mark Birchall

Cat was small and Dog was big, and whatever Dog did, Cat did too...Dog is fed up with Cat copying everything she does. But when Cat stays away, Dog realises that playing alone is not nearly as much fun. A charming story about friendship, sharing and play.

Reviews

Sometimes a book is an all round example of what a picture book should be and this is one of them. Tightly written in few words, the language is as fresh as it is spare. Juxtaposed with pictures both strong and explanatory, the situations in which the winsome little characters find themselves offer terrific scope for the illustrator, so there's a good variety of colours and action. With the central theme of enduring friendship, a smaller cat's admiration and lack of experience make him copy his bigger doggy friend in everything she does. This leads to frustration on the dog's part and an explosion of 'copycat!

's better to do things with a friend rather than on your own, so she rushes round to Cat's, only to find him in bed, covered with spots. Dog ministers to her sickly friend with the result that on the following day she's caught the same spotty ailment. Now Cat can say, 'Copycat!'
