KIRKUS REVIEW

 Four brief chapters about a pleasingly plump bunny and the assertive cat who, uninvited, moves in with her one snowy night. ``All I have is lettuce, carrots...no cat food,'' Chicago points out. But ``You must have something I like,'' the cat persists- -then locks Chicago out of her own house to show her how cold it is. ``And you wanted to send me out there, in the freezing snow?'' ``I guess not,'' Chicago agrees, and goes to bed determined to oust puss in the morning; but she relents after the cat cooks carrot pancakes for her breakfast. Throughout, the cat is charmingly true to cat nature--a garden is a place to dig, and what happens to the seeds Chicago has planted is not the cat's concern; cats don't eat vegetables. With funny, natural-sounding dialogue and simple but nicely animated illustrations: an unusually appealing early chapter book. (Easy reader. 4-8)
