Patchwork Dog has a knack for getting into trouble and his best friend, Calico Cat usually winds up right in the middle of the mess with him. Calico would rather spend her days sleeping in her nice comfortable bed, staying safe and worry free. She knows better than to follow Patchy when he is out looking for a new adventure, but she tags along anyway just in case…
On the other hand, Patchy is very curious and is always investigating new sights, sounds and smells. He follows his nose wherever it goes. Sometimes that leads to trouble but other times it gives Calico a chance to play a trick on her not so smart friend.
Join the two lovable creatures as Patchy tries to fly like a bird and finds out that soaring through the air is fun but the landing hurts too much. In another adventure, the little dog gets caught sneaking around an airplane. In the other three stories, Patchy and Calico eat too many apples, confront a not too friendly skunk, and take a magical ride into town.
Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat has illustrations at the beginning of each chapter that hint at what the new adventure will be about. Older children can read the stories themselves or it would make a wonderful bedtime story book for younger kids. The five tales will entertain children of all ages with the antics of the title characters and hopefully teach youngsters some valuable lessons on sharing and working together.
Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat woke up bright and early one chilly winter morning ready for a new adventure.
“Where should we go today, Calico? It’s a perfect day to go exploring.”
“Oh no Patchy, I know that look in your eyes. When you look at me like
that, we usually get in trouble.”
“When have I ever gotten you in trouble, Calico? I just want to have some fun today.”
“Fun…like sneaking into Mr. Smith’s tool shed and being locked in there all night?
…or like eating all those apples and being sick for two days?
“OK! OK! We have been in a few jams, but think of it as a way to learn new things.”
“Yea, we learned never to do things like that again,” said Calico Cat.
“See,” said the proud little dog, “if we didn’t have any adventures we would never learn valuable lessons.”
“Oh well, what do you have in mind to learn today?” grumbled the cat.
