Here Comes Valentine Cat by Deborah Underwood; Claudia Rueda (Illustrator)The New York Times bestselling Cat is back just in time for Valentine's Day!Full of humor and heart, this picture book is perfect for fans of Bad Kitty, Mo Willems's Elephant and Piggie books, and of course, Cat's other capers, including Here Comes the Easter Cat, Here Comes Santa Cat, and Here Comes the Tooth Fairy Cat.

Dog refuses to respect the fence- He keeps tossing over old bones and hitting Cat in the head! But just as Cat's about to send Dog an angry "valentine" telling him exactly what he can do with his bones, Dog throws a ball over the fence. What is Dog playing at? Cat is in for a hilarious-and heartwarming-surprise in this story about being perhaps too quick to judge. A great Valentine's Day gift for any age-read it on Valentine's Day and year-round!
