My boys love Splat the Cat. He is a fun character - along with his mouse, Seymour. They are fun friends to read about and it is funny that a cat and mouse are friends. The book tells of Splat's concern because it is the day before Easter and the Easter Bunny doesn't know what Splat wants for Easter. He wants a BIG Easter egg. The Easter Bunny is usually hiding somewhere on each page - something I didn't notice while reading this the first time. A few reason for only 4 starts. The book is short and I now see why it is much cheaper than a usual Splat book. Also there is very little wording in each page. This book appears to be geared toward smaller children - my boys are 3 so they like it a lot because of the flaps on almost every page. Me, I prefer to read a book that is little bit longer when I am reading to my children. This book is a bit short for my taste but it wasn't written for me of course - the target audience of 3 -5 year old will be pleased with this flap book.
My son loves all the holidays, and Easter is no exception. He was beyond thrilled when we found out that Splat the Cat, his favorite book series not related to hockey and dinosaurs, had an Easter book. It was a no brainer. We purchased the book and read it all around the Easter Weekend. I won't spoil the intricate plot twists, but rest assured. If you like the Splat the Cat books and have a holiday-centric son/daughter, this is the right book for you.
It may be because our family doesn't treat Easter as a holiday where you ask to receive particular things, but I found the concept of Splat trying to find the Easter Bunny so he could tell him what he wanted for Easter to be odd. I guess at least he wanted an egg and not candy or an expensive toy but still I think there's better lessons that could have been tied in. Maybe he could have been looking for the Easter Bunny to thank him for bringing a big egg. My daughter did enjoy the illustrations and looking for the Easter Bunny throughout the book.
There is no one at my house who would be officially of age to read this book, but we love it. This is the best new picture book series to come along in a while. I want to read anything Scotton writes about Splat.
My son loves this and he loves finding the bunnies hidden on every page! Splat the Cat is such a great PB series!
We have all of the books and can't get enough of them. Splat is a huge hit in our house. I have all the pre-orders already ordered and we can't wait for them to arrive. I hope there are many more to come.
Spalt the cat is great my four year old son loves him. This book isn't as big as others we have but it does have lift the flaps throughout the book, very cute easter book :)
I loved reading this book to my toddler and having his interaction with the flaps.He noticed funny duck on almost every page and found the hidden bunny tooColorful, cute, and funny
