Can a cat and a bird be friends? Cats must eat birds. It’s always been like that, Cat tells Bird when they meet. But Bird asks if they can be friends instead. Bird knows of a fun box for the feline to play in, and knows where to find the highest tree. Cat would also be a good friend to Bird. Cat knows where there are twigs for a nest and juicy worms to eat. But friends do things together, and Bird and Cat don’t like to do the same things. Will Cat and Bird be able to find things to do together? They must if they are going to be friends.

In author Coll Muir’s delightful tale, Can Cat and Bird Be Friends?, Muir explores the unlikely friendship between two natural enemies. Cat and Bird may have loads of differences, but that doesn’t stop them from finding something in common to bring them closer together. What they end up bonding over is both funny and surprising. Muir’s simple black and white palette adds to the characters’ charm. The pop of color on the last page demonstrates the magic of a new and unlikely friendship.
