My Thoughts:

A cute book. I like that even though Hondo and Fabian are not going to the same place, they are having similar adventures.
Hondo goes to the beach and plays with Fred. They dive in the water, have fun, and he wishes he could eat.
While Hondo is at the beach Fabian is at home. He plays with the baby, dives for the door, has his own fun, and wishes he could eat a turkey sandwich. Then Hondo comes home and they have dinner. They go to their favorite places near each other and go to sleep.
It is a cute way to show that even though they are different, they have similarities.

The illustrations are adorable.

Wonderful book for children that like cats and dogs. It is a very quick read. I think younger children will enjoy the story more.
