  Once upon a time there were two cats: one black as tar, one white as snow. They are pals, but always squabble over which one is the prettier cat. One day their curiosity gets the best of them, and they jump into buckets of paint to change color—turning their whole world topsy turvy! After some playful chaos, they soon learn their lesson and rekindle their friendship. Ayin Hillel’s bouncy rhymes and Shimrit Elkanati’s endearingly cute drawings combine to tell a charming tale of friendship and folly. A Tale of Two Cats is a lovingly crafted comics story that will enchant early readers and their parents.
