K-Gr 2—In this installment in the series, clumsy Splat tries to cheer up his athletic dad when his soccer team loses its big game. Looking back at old pictures of his father and grandfather winning a three-legged race, Splat decides that if he and his dad can win some events at the Cat School Games, Dad will be glad. As usual, disaster occurs, causing all of the events that father and son participate in to become quite slapstick. The good news is that Dad has a great sense of humor and really enjoys spending time with his son. The rhyme and repetition make this a standard easy-reader selection. An assortment of expressive felines in colorful attire add to the fun.—Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh, PA

This review was written by my little sister Josie. Splat the cat wanted to do a race because he found out that his dad won a race with his dad (Splat’s grandfather). Splat wanted to win with his dad to make him proud. Splat practiced really, really hard with his friend mouse (that part was funny). Something went wrong and Splat and his dad lost the race. His dad smiled because they had fun and spent time together and that was better than winning the race. I liked that part the best. I really like Splat the cat a lot. I think little kids who are just learning to read will like this book. *Note* We got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
