I'm still reviewing CYBILS nominees. Today's offering WONTON AND CHOPSTICK by Lee Wardlaw, is a sequel to WONTON, a story about a shelter cat and the boy who takes him home. Wonton and Chopstick is broken into chapters, just like the original. In the first chapter, WONTON has become very comfortable in his routines.
Nap, play, bathenap, eat, repeatpractice makes purr fect.One day, he senses something different in the house. A new puppy has come home. And the adjustment is a little difficult.
