This amiable wisp of a tale offers quiet contrasts between the action-packed day of Hondo the dog (who goes out for adventures in the car and on the beach) and that of Fabian the cat (who stays home and plays with the baby). Reader Jeff Brooks makes the most of this minimalist narrative. He reads with enthusiasm and differentiates the personalities of the two animals, but mostly his job is to provide a warmly agreeable backdrop for the soft, simple pictures in the book, and he does that job well. Quiet music rounds out this production, which is meant for the littlest listeners. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
