Splat the Cat

Splat the Cat

Written and Illustrated by Rob Scotton

Published by HarperCollins Children's Books

Who remembers their first day at school? Most adults probably won't but if you've got preschool kids who are a little worried about their first day in class, Splat the Cat is probably more worried than any of them put together. 
After failing to come up with a decent excuse to not go on, Splat, along with Seymour his pet mouse, soon finds out that school isn't such a bad place after all. 
Rob Scotton's lovely fuzzy but superbly crisp artwork is excellent, and though the world doesn't exactly need another cute fuzzy cat character, Splat is a welcome addition. 

Charlotte's best bit: All the other cats trying to eat Seymour

Daddy's favourite bit: Scotton's artwork. Fine stuff.
