Horn Book Review

Text by Amy Hsu Lin. In Takes the Cake, emulating his favorite TV show character, Super Cat, Splat accidentally breaks his TV--then enters a baking contest to win a new one. Name of the Game finds Splat frustrated by always losing games with friends, but he discovers "playing alone was not much fun" either. The stories are slim, but the familiar kitties are enjoyably silly. [Review covers these I Can Read Book titles: Splat the Cat: The Name of the Game and Splat the Cat Takes the Cake.] (c) Copyright 2012.
