This is a wistful, sometimes amusing, story of friendship, sadness, newfound tolerance and tenderness in unexpected places. There are some funny passages in it and a couple of wrenching losses, including the departure of Upchuck’s best friend Tom.

The dialogue of cats and dogs in this story isn’t entirely how you would expect an animal to think. But that’s perfectly acceptable; clearly, the story of Upchuck and Willy’s burgeoning friendship is a tender tale that’s meant as one of acceptance as well as solace for any child mourning the loss of a best friend.
