Winner Blurb: 

A beach outing for the dog and a full day at home for the cat are skillfully interwoven in this quiet tale of friendship. Spare text describes the day’s events while soft, glowing illustrations tell the real story of parallel activities with subtle humor. McCarty’s design choices from font and page layout to size and inviting cover art show great attention to detail in this masterfully executed picture book. When the day ends, we see ‘Hondo and Fabian,’ full and fat in their favorite places once again. A 2003 Caldecott Honor Book
