Waiting on Wednesday - Wonton and Chopstick by Lee Wardlaw

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles of books whose release we are eagerly anticipating.

Wonton and Chopstick: a dog and cat tale told in haiku by Lee Wardlaw. Illustrated by Eugene Yelchin. 40 p. Henry Holt and Company, March 17, 2015. 9780805099874. 

Publisher synopsis: Won Ton has a happy life with his Boy, until…
Ears perk. Fur prickles.
Belly low, I creep…peek…FREEZE!
My eyes full of Doom.
A new puppy arrives, and nothing will be the same.
Told entirely in haiku and with plenty of catitude, the story of how Won Ton faces down the enemy is a fresh and funny twist on a familiar rivalry.
I absolutely adored Wonton, which was published in 2011 and am thrilled that he's back and thrilled that he's dealing with a dog.
