From the author of The Quiet Book and Here Comes the Easter Cat comes a hilarious holiday adventure! <br> <br> Cat took on a bunny in Here Comes the Easter Cat , but now Christmas is coming, and Cat has a hunch he's not on Santa's "nice" list. Which means? No presents for Cat. So he tries to be good, but children, it seems, aren't wild for his brand of gift-giving. Still, Cat might surprise himself, and best of all, he may just get to meet the man in the red suit himself--and receive a holiday surprise of his own. Fans of Pete the Cat, Splat the Cat, Bad Kitty, and Mo Willems's Elephant and Piggie series will delight in this holiday treat.<br> <br> A great stocking-stuffer or holiday gift--read it at Christmastime and year-round! <br> <br> ★ "Excellent . . .

Horn Book Review

Cat was jealous of the Easter Bunny's job in Here Comes the Easter Cat (rev. 3/14). Now the naughty feline figures that if he dresses up as Santa Claus, he can give himself a present. But he quickly abandons the idea when he realizes Santa's job entails not only getting sooty but also delivering gifts to others. After a few failed last-ditch attempts at good deeds to get on the nice list, Cat discovers the true Christmas spirit just in time to receive a special present from Santa. Once again the humorous banter between an offstage narrator, who addresses Cat directly, and the silent-yet-expressive Cat, who lets his illustrated signs do the talking, will keep kids giggling. Underwood and Rueda's spot-on use of comedic timing, page turns, white space, and layout creates another holiday winner. cynthia k. ritter (c) Copyright 2014.
