Scaredy-Cat, Splat!

19 Jul

Attention Fans of Laughter and Reading! Splat the Cat will be back on SeeSaw this September with his brand new, terrifyingly hilarious Scaredy-Cat Splat!

Splat charmed me early on in Splat the Cat. He had it all: he was big, black and fluffy, he had a mouse for a best friend, a red knapsack and was ready for school… well, almost ready for school. Then, Splat fell in love in Love, Splat. His and Kitten’s is a love for the ages and one that will, of course, last forever. I’ve always been a huge Rob Scotton fan, starting way back in his Russell the Sheep days – and as a fan, this newest Scotton title does not disappoint. In Scaredy-Cat Splat we get to hang out with Splat on Halloween, and there are more than a few mishaps. First he’s scared by a spider, then no one thinks his costume is very scary, and then he gets scared during Mrs. Wimpydimple’s ghost story! But when a mysterious furry creature with a giant pumpkin head shows up, will Splat have what it takes to stop being a scaredy-cat and be the bravest cat in school?

Just in case you are sadly unfamiliar with the hilarity that is Splat, rest easy and check out a book trailer for Love, Splat:

(Warning: May cause you to squeal loudly and cuddle the person closest to you.)

    Loved receiving info on Splat.Can’t wait for the next. I have a 10-year old avid reader. So I am looking forward to receiving reviews on that age group and older.

    This sounds adorable. I’m a grown 25 year old man, but…I’d be lying if I said this doesn’t sound really really cute. Definitely going to check out this cat some time.

    My class loves Splat, thanks to you, Preeti! We first read Love, Splat after your January visit and became obsessed. Our copies of both Splat books are very tattered already. Can’t wait for Scaredy-Cat, Splat!

      Oh that’s exciting! I’ve still only read the manuscript for Scaredy-Cat Splat, so I can’t wait to see the actual artwork!

      (Pst, we also have a new Christmas-y Splat coming out in November… but that’s a secret!)
