By Lynn Rossiter McFarland

Review by: Lori Plach

     Widget is like us all, he just wants to fit in. But as often happens when
one tries to be someone he isn't he begins to forget who he really he is.
     Widget is a homeless puppy who is alone, cold and living on the street.
He comes upon a house with a door just about his size. He enters the house and Mrs. Diggs takes pity on the poor puppy. But she has to ask the other 6 residents whether or not she should let the visitor stay.
     As the "girls" who are cats, puff up so does he. When they hissed and spit, so did Widget. When the cats growl at him, he purrs, plays with a toy mouse and uses the litter box. The cats are very confused but don't mind when Mrs. Diggs sets down a bowl for Widget. They never do take their eyes off of him as he eats. Widget continues to fit right in, he forgets he's a dog and gets chased up the tree along with the cats. This
continues for quite some time. No one can hear the chorus of meows when Mrs. Diggs trips on a toy and can't move. Finally Widget barks and the cats follow his lead. Mrs. Diggs is saved. No one even realized that she even had a dog. However, Mrs. Diggs and the cats agree that it is very nice to have a dog around.
     This book is a very amusing tale and a twist on the cat versus dog
attributes. With very short sentences and expressive illustrations, this
book will capture the interests of preschool audiences. A lesson is to be
learned from this book as well. When it comes right down to it, we should all just be ourselves. We may not fit in completely but we are all very important.
