Celebrate Summer with Splat!

Splish, Splash, Splat! (Splat the Cat)
Summer is here and warm weather has finally arrived and what better way to celebrate than with everyone's favorite cat? Splat is back in another great installment, Splish, Splash, Splat! (Splat the Cat).

Splat does not want to have a playdate with Spike. Spike will break his toys and eat all of his candy fish! And he does not want to learn how to swim—water is horrible, scary, and wet! He's sure that this is going to be the worst day ever. But when the rest of their classmates rush straight into the pool, Splat and Spike find that they may have more in common than they thought. Will Splat overcome his fear of water and get into the pool? And how can he help Spike to do the same?

The illustrations are just as amazing from the previous Splat books and young readers won't get enough of Splat's hilarious facial expressions. Not to mention the illustration of Splat when he forgets to put on his swim trunks! He can try to convince everyone that he hasn't and that his trunks are black and furry, but young readers will enjoy it just the same, especially when they see Splat wearing the perfect present from Spike.

Rob Scotton has delivered another classic!
