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 purrrfect picture book for kids, adults, and pets of all ages to enjoy....

Niblet & Ralph Reviews
I love this book for featuring clever cats, clueless people, a very cute cat butt and the cover of A Tribe Called Quest's The Low End Theory. Tote adorbs! And a good underlying theme of neighborliness.
THIS IS THE CUTEST BOOK.
I saw the cat on the back cover and had to pick it up off the processing cart and read it. The illustration style is adorable and half the book is TEAL, my favorite color. I'm wearing a teal shirt today, actually.
Niblet and Ralph live in the same apartment building. Their people haven't met, but Ralph and Niblet are good friends. One day they decide to visit each other, but miss each other in passing and end up in the opposite apartment alone! When their people get home ...more
The parent trap...with cats! Stylish art, cute story, sure to be a giggle-inducing favourite at storytime.
The cutest cat book you will read all year. (Loved the cameos from Momo and Nilson, too.)
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.
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.
Niblet and Ralph are best friends - they are cats who look almost the same, but they are very different. All day they talk on the phone together, but one day, Ralph found a way to visit Niblet - and Niblet scampered across the hall into Ralphs apartment. Because neither was home, they waited. But when their people came home, the children notice that there is something wrong - their cats aren't behaving normally. However, without knowing that the cats have traded places, how will they figure out ...more
Loved this one. Niblet and Ralph are two identical-seeming cats who live across the hall from each other in an apartment building. They know about each other, but their kid owners do not. Will the kid owners be able to put things right after the cats are switched?
There is a lot to appreciate here, from the visual clues (sharp-eyed readers will note that the cats are mirror images of each other, not identical, which, as another reviewer pointed out, could work in a lesson on symmetry), to the dou ...more
