Pineapple loves being an only cat—and then Kiwi comes along. But despite the chaos and the annoyances, Pineapple soon realizes that a new kitten—a new friend—makes everything twice as fun. Energetic and simply delightful, Sarah Kurpiel’s Original Cat, Copy Cat is a celebration of friendship and acceptance. It will be adored by fans of Wolfie the Bunny and Max the Brave.

Pineapple the cat loves his comfortable life: that is, until he’s not the only cat in his house anymore. Now Pineapple’s entire routine is turned upside down. Worst of all, new kitten Kiwi copies everything Pineapple does.One day, Pineapple decides he’s had enough. But being an only cat isn’t the same anymore. With his old routine soured, Pineapple learns that having a friend makes everything better. And eventually, it’s hard to tell who’s the copy cat, after all.As with her acclaimed debut, Lone Wolf, Sarah Kurpiel’s spare text, exuberant artwork, and expressive characters make for an irresistible picture book, one perfect for storytime sharing.
