    Written in the style of P. D. Eastman’s classic Big Dog . . . Little Dog, this modern-day alley-cat odd couple will delight beginning readers. 

    Mac loves to run and play, but Cheese likes lazy lounging. When Mac's hat blows away, will Cheese sit there like a lump or spring into action to save it?

    Mac and Cheese is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences. Whether shared at home or in a classroom, the short sentences, familiar words, and simple concepts of Level One books support success for children eager to start reading on their own.
