If you have never read any of the Splat the Cat books you are truly missing out. These books by Rob Scotton have been some of my favorite since my youngest Avery was in kindergarten and continue to still be a huge hit in our household. The artwork is filled with softened edges giving it a glowing essence of life all its own. This is what originally drew me in and got me hooked.Was this review helpful?

Splat is a vividly drawn black plumpy cat who has to deal with the topics of life that every child will deal with sooner or later. However, Splat never has to deal with anything alone as he has a very trusted friend, Seymour, who is a mouse, who is always there for Splat when he needs a friend most.
In this particular book, Splat wants to do something special for his friend Seymour to cheer him up; who so gallantly sticks by his side through all of the crazy shenanigans he seems to get into. While anybody could go out and buy a thank you card, Splat does one better and decides to make Seymour a Thank You book! In it he recaps all of the wonderful adventures their friendship has taken them together. Will this book be just what the doctor ordered?
While all of the Splat books eventually can be found through Scholastic and on Amazon in paperback for fairly cheap, I highly recommend just buying the bigger and hardier hardback copy as this book will get read so many times and you don't want to wear it out. If you have yet to discover the life of Splat, don't wait!
