From New York Times bestseller Spencer Quinn comes book 2 in the laugh-out-loud series about the most epic rivalry of our time . . . Arthur the dog vs. Queenie the cat. Queenie the cat has a BIG problem. And for once, it's not the slobbery, overly excited creature who also lives at Blackberry Hill Inn. Sweet Lady Emsworth, the neighbor's prize cow, has disappeared, meaning no morning cream for Queenie. And when Queenie's not happy, NO ONE is happy . . .
Things aren't looking great for Arthur the dog, either. His beloved humans, twins Harmony and Bro, are distressed about the strange activity in their town. Mysterious hi-tech people are suddenly very interested in nearby Catastrophe Falls, bills are piling up at their mom's inn . . . and now the twins might be hiding a fugitive?!
Arthur is desperate to help but for some reason, no one seems to think he's up to the task. (Could that be because he can't remember what happened more than 10 seconds ago? Surely not!) Can Arthur save the day -- and become a hero in Queenie's eyes -- without making a disastrous splash?

Praise for Paws vs. Claws:
"Canine Arthur and feline Queenie narrate a high-stakes mystery in this second book of their eponymous middle-grade series. Arthur and Queenie take the stage as dog and cat co-narrators of this funny, deftly plotted mystery. Arthur is a delightfully foggy dog with a big doggie heart -- not keen on exercise but very keen on food. For her part, Queenie is the epitome of cat aloofness and self-love." -- Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Woof (Bowser and Birdie, Book 1):
"I defy anyone to read this book -- kid or adult -- without a big, goofy grin." -- Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"Imagine Scout Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird setting out to solve a mystery with the aid of a charming, slobbery dog. You'll wish you had Birdie and Bowser as your very best friends." -- Kathryn Lasky, New York Times bestselling author
"Bowser and Birdie send me into giggle fits and won my heart. Bowser deserves the Bucketful of Bacon Award for Best Dog Ever!" -- Jude Watson, New York Times bestselling author
