Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Underwood shows there's more clever fun to be had with the star of the wonderfully original Here Comes the Easter Cat, who speaks directly to the unseen narrator only through signs. In this even more universal story, Cat must conquer his greedy tendencies and learn it's more blessed to give than to receive. And that being nice isn't that hard.

Claudia Reuda's spare, expressive drawings in ink and colored pencil on stark white pages show Cat's shifting emotions, hopes, and epiphanies. They look a lot like the quickly changing moods of a little kid, so young readers (and their parents) will have no trouble relating.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
