For my 4 year old, I found this book to be a little over complicated. Cause and effect aren't really her strong suit yet so the occasional jumps kind of left her confused. As much as I hate reading books to her where everything is uber spelled out, this book taught me the necessity of that which is so loathsome to read as an adult. Regardless, the book is very cute. I was a little worried about this book causing new issues once I started reading it, sometime reading about anxiety in a character can trigger it in a child (I've found), but that was really my own mistake not reading the book ahead of time to prepare myself. Not my daughter, or my own favorite book, but solid, well written, and well illustrated.
My little one LOVES Splat the Cat so we had to order a few, especially at these prices! This was the more expensive one due to it being a hard cover but he read this book in school and wanted it. Quality is great like any other book. The colors are vibrant and the stories are always fun!
This book came highly recommended so I'm not sure why I'm surprised that this was a real treat! Each of my children (ages 1 to 11) enjoyed this book and I so, must of all! The storyline: simple and purrrrrfect the illustration: entrancing and meticulous! I whole-heartedly recommend this book to everyone!
Great story, funny and sweet! Gorgeous, engaging, and oh so clever illustrations (I LOVE the little mouse shape in Splat's bed sheet!). I LOVE how Splat's teacher enjoyed and directed the children, and I LOVE how happy Splat was when he came home from his first day of school! Very encouraging story!
Super cute book! However, it was supposed to be a Christmas gift and the book arrived damaged. The book is a board book but the book was bent and worn at the corners. Disappointed but should be getting a replacement soon, I hope it’s better.
