Splat the Cat Sings Flat (I Can Read! Level 1: Beginning Reading)

by Rob Scotton (Author) Rob Scotton (Illustrator)

When Splat's teacher announces that the whole class is going to sing for their parents on Parents' Night, Splat is worried: he's afraid to speak in public, much less sing in public!

In fact, he's so nervous he can't even manage a simple "meow." What will it take for Splat to overcome his stage fright and make his parents proud?

Splat the Cat Sings Flat, Splat's I Can Read debut, captures the experience of facing one's fears with warmth and humor. Young readers will beg for an encore!

K-Gr 2—Lovable and fuzzy Splat the Cat is back. The shy feline is filled with anxiety when he learns that his class will be performing on Parents' Night. He looks to his pet mouse, Seymour, for inspiration on how to be brave. Still, he worries as he commits himself to practice singing. At last the night arrives; Splat's performance is not perfect, but he does his best and has fun. This beginning chapter book is similar to the earlier titles in both monochromatic tone and style. Children who are familiar with them will recognize Splat's classmates, fun background details, and silly expressions. Unlike Splat himself, this offering doesn't fall flat.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
