Pinkerton seems lonely. So his young owner goes to the pet show to find him a friend. She returns with a kitten named Rose, who could be the ideal playmate for Pinkerton. But Rose has ideas of her own. She wants to be a Great Dane, and suddenly Pinkerton decides to start acting like a kitten. So Pinkerton, Rose and their owners go back to the pet show to seek professional advice, but what results is a crazy and comical adventure! "A zesty tale that is delivered with splendid flourish . . . Funny and well-paced [with] dexterous illustrations." (Booklist, starred review)
