The Story of Diva and Flea by Mo Willems

The Story of Diva and Flea by Mo Willems -- This brief tale concerns a very large cat and a very small dog, who meet in Paris and help each other branch out and discover new ways to experience the world. It's a charming, if slight, book, less laugh-out-loud funny than one generally expects of Mo Willems, but containing some gentle humor. A good choice for young readers just making the foray into chapter books.

(Reviewed from a copy borrowed through my library system.)


  1. I ended up buying a copy of this for my middle school library because it was so completely adorable! It also had a really good message. I'm not usually a fan of picture books, but I very nearly bought a copy for myself as well.

    1. It is adorable -- and I can see how it could be a good fit for animal-loving middle-schoolers.

  2. I loved it! Such a cute book and great message!
