Two-year-olds love to say, “NO!” so Jim and I created a book to give them the opportunity to say it on every page. Our Burmese cat, Groucho, got into everything and was our inspiration, but his dark coat didn’t show up well in Jim’s photographs, so Jim drew an Abyssinian cat instead. A few years later, we got an Abby, George. I guess you could say we had two inspirations for NO, NO, JO!
