“Love, Splat” is the follow-up book to “Splat the Cat.”  In this book, it is Valentine’s Day and Splat has made a very special Valentine for his crush Kitten.  Splat liked her a lot but every time that Kitten saw him “she pulled his ears and poked his belly, tied his tail and called him smelly.  Then she’d run away.”  Once Splat brings his Valentine to school he is dismayed to find out that another cat, Spike, likes Kitten too.  Who will win Kitten’s heart?

Max:  “Splat is a funny cat!  I like cats!”

Cayden:  “I like Splat!  We read a book about him before.  He is the cat with the funny sticking up hair!  The pictures in this book are funny.  I liked when he was brushing his teeth, but I think he used way too much toothpaste!  It was all foamy by his mouth.  It was funny when he had toilet paper on his foot too and the mouse was riding on it!”

Max:  “Kitten pulled Splat’s ears- ouch!”

Cayden:  “I don’t think she pulled them that hard, but that isn’t nice to do.”

Cayden:  “I like this book.  I want to read the other Splat book now too.”

Parent’s comments:
My children and I both love adorable little Splat.  You can’t help but smile every time you look at him!  Like the first book, the storyline in “Love, Splat” by Rob Scotton is very humorous and the illustrations are wonderfully detailed.  We look forward to more stories about Splat in the future!
