Hudson and Tallulah Take Sides Kindle Edition
From an award-winning team, a tale about a cat and a dog who discover that even though they don’t look at things the same way, they can still be friends.
Hudson and Tallulah may be neighbors, but the fence between their yards isn’t the only thing that divides them. They can’t see eye to eye on anything. One day they venture out, and after nonstop disagreement, they realize something surprising: they don’t always have to agree to be on each other’s side.
Inspired by a story their daughter Lily wrote in the second grade, the author and illustrator of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award winner You Are (Not) Small have created a tale of finding common ground when you least expect it—and using it as a stepping-stone to friendship.
“New Yorker cartoonist Weyant’s illustrations, which use gouache, graphite, and lots of white space, carry the day, filling the dog’s and cat’s reactions to what they encounter with plenty of comic details (like the bold lettering conveying the dog-park dogs’ frantic barking at the cat). Madcap fun.” —Booklist (starred review)
“Charming cartoons convey the nearly wordless story augmented with dialogue between the two rivals…An amusing exploration of how opposite personalities can learn to appreciate their unique relationship.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Aptly captured by married team Kang and Weyant (You Are (Not) Small), the unlikely friends’ comic path to camaraderie unfolds nearly wordlessly, with expressive gouache and graphite scenes that burst with physical humor, showing that even those who fight like cats and dogs can be friends.” —Publishers Weekly
From the Publisher
Inspired by a story their daughter wrote, a rivalry between their dog and a neighbor’s cat, and tension between people with opposing viewpoints, this Geisel Award–winning team created a picture book in which debates over the deliciousness of garbage or the delightfulness of mud build to a seemingly insurmountable divide. But this duo’s anger gives way to an idea that’s far better: that beyond what separates us could be one small thing that helps us relate. And who knows—one day, it might even lead to friendship.

This is the kind of book that Could create conversation and show the differences between perspectives but I feel it was lacking in guidance towards that goal. It felt me wanting something more.
In a nutshell this is going to be a Very quick read and more of a look-at-the-pictures kind of book.
On a more serious note, if there's one thing society as a whole seems to have lost, it’s the ability to find common ground that should connect us as humans. A disappointing legacy that will require effort, compassion and determination to change.
This may be a sweet children's story with colorful, eye-catching illustrations, but its message is ageless and vital.
This is a quick, breezy read with only the simplest of a story to tell but it's told engagingly well and with sweeping, beautiful illustrations. I had some issues with the Kindle version of this book, though could easily see either Kindle or print being a welcome addition to a pre-school library. This would also be a relatively light book for beginning readers as Kang's words and Weyant's illustrations tie together quite nicely.
This was an Amazon First Read and I look forward to exploring Kang and Weyant's other works.
