Blossom, a plump and happy cat, is horrified when 6-year-old Prissy comes to stay with her family. She’s the meanest girl Blossom’s ever met, and she’s turning Blossom’s life upside down. When Prissy pulls her tail, Blossom makes up her mind: Prissy must go! All she needs is a plan. . . .

Perkins is a wise old tabby cat with problems of his own. His 8-year-old owner insists on doing his picture for a Paint Your Pet competition. All Perkins wants is a little peace and quiet. He doesn’t expect to find a surprising talent of his own. . . .

Funny and accessible, these two chapter books in one about the Cats of Cuckoo Square are impossible to resist.
