I guess I’m not a “cat person,” but it’s really not my fault. My mom is afraid of cats. If I got a cat, I’d lose my free babysitter. And my husband says cats have an attitude. Besides, I grew up with a dog, and we now own a dog of our own, so I know dogs. I really don’t know what to “do” with cats. But they do fascinate me. They may have an attitude, but that’s what makes them so interesting! Today I bring you a review of the first in a brilliant series of books starring Cat. In them, the narrator (which is really you, the reader), ask (and answer) Cat’s questions:
Though Cat never speaks a word (he communicates only by facial expressions and the occasional hand-made poster), you know just what he’s thinking. He is grumpy. He is grumpy because the Easter Bunny gets so much attention. So, the narrator offers a suggestion or two to help Cat feel appreciated too. Of course, that “cattitude” creeps in, and Cat threatens to take over Easter. But with the narrator’s help, Cat learns to appreciate the hard work the Easter Bunny does every year. This hilarious read-aloud book is filled with ink and color pencil illustrations of Cat, the Easter Bunny, candy, motorcycles, and sparkly vests; and the text is filled with humor, heart, and “cattitude!” I have read (and own almost) the whole series (HERE COMES SANTA CAT, HERE COMES VALENTINE CAT, HERE COMES THE TOOTH FAIRY CAT, and HERE COMES TEACHER CAT) because I am in love with Deborah Underwood and Claudia Rueda’s Cat! I’m sure you’ll fall in love too.
