Cleo and Caspar

by Caroline Mockford

Published by Barefoot Books, 2001
24 pages
ISBN: 1-84148-440-7

Ages 18 months - 3 years

Making new friends can be hard, especially for a cat confronted by a canine newcomer to the household. At first Cleo is alarmed by Caspar's barking and runs to hide on a tree branch, but she soon overcomes her fear and the two creatures become playmates. A spare text ("Cleo runs downstairs. / Cleo hears a sound. / Someone new is in the house! / Cleo looks around.") and striking, boldly-outlined acrylic illustrations combine in an appealing look at new experiences for young children. CCBC categories: Picture Books For Younger Children.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
