The Gift of Nothing

Mooch the cat desperately wants to find a gift for his friend Earl the dog, but Earl already has everything. "What do you give a guy who has everything?" Mooch wonders. The answer, of course, is nothing!

With delightfully spare illustrations and text, this simple story of friendship has the same depth, charm, and heart as the MUTTS comic strip that inspired the tale.

The Gift of Nothing has all the makings of a longtime classic, perfect for gift-giving all year round.

“How [Mooch] solves the problem is pure delight, reminding young readers that the greatest gift is friendship, not things.”
