Scaredy-Cat, Splat!

Rating: 5/5

It’s Halloween, and Splat is determined to be the scariest cat in the class. Unfortunately he’s just too much of a scaredy-cat. He’s afraid of a little spider, and everyone says his costume looks more silly than scary. And when Mrs. Wimpydimple tells a ghost story in the dark, Splat gets so frightened that he tips over his jack-o’-lantern. But when the lights go back on, the entire class is scared silly by a small, black, furry creature with a big pumpkin head. Whooooo can it be?

Okay, so Halloween is long over and we’re gearing up for the next holiday. Still, I had to go ahead and read this (along with every other Splat the Cat book). Rob Scotton does not disappoint. This book was precious. I was expecting Splat to be afraid of something, but this was even better. His mom comes up with the perfect DIY spider costume and I love his scary spider face. I still have a few more Splat the Cat books to read, but this is already one of those characters I’ll want to share with my children when I have them.

I highly recommend this for your young ones. I forgot to look at the age range before I returned it to the library, but I think that all of the Splat the Cat books would be good for beginning readers and bed time stories.
