The King Cat by Marta Altés

10981950_10153083972530446_1448304318582057315_nThe King Cat is a hilarious tale of cat meets dog, new arrivals, jealousy and the art of compromise.

This story would be the perfect accompaniment for the arrival of a new baby for an older sibling.

Watch what happens when the top dog is the cat of the household and that hierarchy is threatened by the arrival of a dog.

“Dogs are annoying

Dogs are strange

Dogs are disgusting.”

The way Altés is able to perfectly pinpoint the expressions of both the cat and dog speak for themselves and need no narrative.

We particularly loved the twist at the end of the story and one we’d highly recommend.
