Summary, etc.:
"Marmalade and her crew of construction kittens are in high demand! Their latest assignment (and bigest job yet) is to build the new Mewburg bridge. But with the bridge comes the one thing that cats hate most of all--water! As the team struggles to face their fears and do their jobs, they are forced to get help from some unlikely allies...slobbery, car-chasing dogs."--Page [2] of cover.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 October #2
    Chief architect Marmalade (an orange tabby) and her team of adorable house cats, having proved themselves by building the mayor's new mansion (Kitten Construction Company: Meet the House Kittens, 2018), are contracted to replace the old Mewberg bridge. Their plans move forward until masonry and lumber expert Professor Von Wigglebottom (a Siamese) reminds Marmalade that bridges are, in fact, built over water, which sends her into a panic. Despite the best efforts of their fearless plumber, Bubbles (a white Persian), the cats are forced to outsource help. Enter Carl Barks and his canine crew of Demo Doggos—much to Marmalade's distaste. Continuing his playful premise, Green delivers another gentle, hilarious tale rife with the kind of interspecies competition that both cat- and dog-lovers will revel in, though the real winners here are the punsters, who will gorge on a veritable feast of wordplay. The art remains colorful and slightly cartoonish—these animals are animals, despite being intelligent and able to use tools—and pages fit at most two panels, making this an excellent choice for graphic novel newbies.
