Em Lynas’s books - in her words:
“In The Cat and the Rat and the Hat, the cat has the hat and the rat wants it but then a bat with a fancy cravat comes zooming by and suddenly the cat and the rat both want the fancy cravat! But they don't know that the bat wants the hat!
“In The Goat and the Stoat and the Boat, stoat is afloat in his boat on the moat until the goat jumps in and wants to float in his boat on the moat but stoat doesn't want a goat in his boat! There's chaos!”
