Two pet cats switch places in this comically sweet story of mistaken identity, from beloved author-illustrator Zachariah OHora.Niblet and Ralph may look a lot alike, but they are very different. Niblet loves noshing on crunchy potato chips. Ralph loves putting on headphones and jamming to his favorite records. But both cats have one thing in common: They love being friends and waving to each other from their windows across the courtyard of the apartment building they live in.One day, Niblet and Ralph decide it's time to meet in person (or in cat?). But when they mistakenly end up at each other's apartments, their owners think that Niblet is Ralph, and Ralph is Niblet! Will Niblet and Ralph be able to switch back to their proper homes, or will they be stuck listening to music (ugh) and eating chips (gross) forever? Better still, will they be able to bring their lovable (if not very observant) human families together?With zany humor and bold, bright art, Zachariah OHora creates a purrrfe...

Niblet & Ralph Reviews
This book was hilarious and adorable. I'm not even a cat person, and I loved it. I think some of the pictures are too small for storytime, including ones that are important like the cats traversing the clothesline in the clothes, but I think it'd be GREAT for one-on-one sharing.
The parent trap...with cats! Stylish art, cute story, sure to be a giggle-inducing favourite at storytime.
This book is PRECIOUS!!! The illustrations are both adorable and silly, such as Ralph hiding in a pair of pants on the clothesline to go visit Niblet. My heart swelled at these two kittens and their human companions!
7/6/2018 ~~ Thanks to my in-laws for giving me this book as a birthday gift. Isn't it great when family members know your passions? cats, books, friendship.
This book would spark good conversations among children about friendship: sometimes we can be friends even though we have different interests. Also, about knowing something is true and acting on your beliefs, even if the adults in your life don't believe you.
Love the unexpected, original elements, the artwork, and how the parents don't believe the kids but we as readers know the kids are right.
It's a cute children's book about two cats who look-alike who live in the same apartment building. The owners, Gemma and Dilla, don't know that their cats have been talking to each other as these two kids don't know each other. One day Niblet decides to visit Ralph but when Niblet gets to Ralph's house, he is gone. The funny thing is that, this is the same day that Ralph has decided to visit Niblet and when Ralph gets to Niblet's house, Niblet is not there. Both cats decide just to wait for thei ...more
Real classic look to it gives it a refreshing look, actually. The mix-up is funny and the fact that the families are "different" but it's not made a big deal of is also refreshing. The symbol of Niblet and Ralph almost the same is also not obvious: the families are different: one is a mom and child, one a dad and child; they are different races. But also the same: single parents, both love cats. They are similar ages.
Zach OHora came to visit my public library in April and we were so excited when he told us he had a new book coming out. I love Niblet & Ralph and I think the kiddos at my library will as well. The illustrations are really cool and who doesn't lose track of their pets every once in a while??!! If you're a fan of OHora, you definitely have to read this one!
