From the Inside Flap
Oliver is a tabby cat who is always the center of attention.
Marshmallow is a baby rabbit who moves into Oliver's home.
At first Oliver does not welcome Marshmallow, but the little bunny's charms are impossible to resist. This is the true story of how Oliver and Marshmallow become friends.
Clare Turlay Newberry's lifelong passions for cats and for drawing come together in this elegantly illustrated book, winner of the 1943 Caldecott Honor. Her legacy as an author of more than fifteen picture books, most of which feature cats, still endures.--Brightly --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

The story involves a bunny that comes to live in the same home as a cat. The family keeps them apart at first, but gradually they become friends, and it is adorable. The illustrations are not the big, colorful, page-covering displays that we find in a lot of today's children's books; this one is old school, with spare, simple, but endearing art work. In some ways this makes it easier for the child, who won't be overstimulated, and will know exactly what part of the picture to look at.
The book itself is full size. I only mention this because I bought another hard cover picture book, another classic that set me back more than this one did, and it had been shrunken down to the size of a paperback book. Yes, they tell us the dimensions, but with a child's hardcover book that I've seen before, I don't always check, and maybe you don't either.
The only downside to this lovely book, as you might imagine, is the one I encountered when I bought it for my own children many years ago: if you have a bunny already, your child will ask for a cat. Well of course they will. If you have a cat already, they will ask for a bunny. I don't know what happens if you have neither, because we always had one or the other, but dear heaven, not both.
