Splat, one of my favorite cats, is back just in time for Halloween. Once again Rob Scotton has created a picture book with beautiful illustrations depicting Splat, the black haired, bug-eyed cat. This time Splat is trying to be the scariest cat in the class for Halloween, even though he is scared by many different things. While his plans don't turn out like he intended, Splat does indeed end up being a very scary cat, and Scaredy-cat, Splat ends up being a very cute Halloween story. I have been looking forward to the release of this book for a while, and was very excited to find it in my mailbox today, sent from Harper Collins. We happily read this as our bedtime book this evening, all of my daughters anxious to read the next Splat story. Scotton's story and illustrations are delightful, as usual, and we are happy to have Scaredy-cat, Splat for many bedtime story times.
