Furry rivals Cat and Pug have a rhyme-riddled showdown in this hilarious and delightfully quirky picture book about the joys of writing poetry—playfully imagined by the creator of social media sensation Inkpug!
There once was a Pug and a Cat
Who engaged in a poetic spat…
Cat and Pug are each determined to become the World’s Best Poet, no matter what it takes. Whether they’re writing sonnets to sundaes or typing ballads with their butts, they will stop at nothing to outwit, out-write, and out-verse each other.
But perhaps there is an even greater prize to be had: Can these two rivals discover the wonderful joy of writing…together?
