Snot Stew

Snot Stew

by Bill Wallace Illustrated by Lisa McCue

It's not easy being a kitten. Don't get me wrong. I love being scratched behind the ears, chasing Butch the dog, and eating Mother's stew.

My brother Toby and I learned about "people things" when we were adopted by Sarah and Ben. The only problem with kid-people is the games they like to play, like "Dress the Cat" — and "Snot Stew."

It's not stew! But what is it? It's making a bully out of Toby and a wreck out of me!
