Description

A gentle wordless picture book about the difference a kind friend can make on a gray day.  

It’s a beautiful morning, but when Cat wakes up, the world feels gray. Cat wraps up in a blanket and hides — until Dog comes in. What can Dog do to help Cat?

Dog joins Cat under the blanket and listens to Cat’s worries. Dog’s flashlight illuminates the darkness and brings laughter. The two friends build a blanket fort where they can make shadow puppets and find comfort in storybooks. Dog makes sandwiches so that they can share a picnic meal. With Dog’s help, Cat discovers ways to cope until the sadness starts to lift.

Ruth Ohi’s first wordless picture book is a quiet, heartfelt story about those times when you just want to hide under a blanket — and how much it can mean to have a friend who will be there to keep you company.
