Angus and the Cat

Angus is a very curious little Scottie dog. Angus explores and sees many things, like frogs and balloons, and he learns what they do! But one thing Angus does not understand is CATS. What are they? What do they DO? Suddenly, there is a cat in Angus's house! What is that cat doing? Will Angus ever find out? This classic picture book from 1931 has adorable drawings and a funny story that still enchants. It expertly presents the excitement and curiosity that a Scottie dog (or a young child) will exhibit at any new discovery. Read this one aloud!
