Review quote

Praise for "The Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow: "A Chicago Public Library Best of the Best"Broad slapstick humor and galloping, Seuss-like rhymes are just part of the reason this sequel to "The Cat on the Mat Is Flat" has strong child appeal. Denton's funny illustrations are full of action, and his use of stick figures and stink lines makes the book look as though it had been illustrated by a cheeky but talented kid." --"School Library Journal," starred review"Early, emerging, reluctant, and accomplished readers alike are certain to enjoy this hilarious, easy to read book chock-full of whacky, slapstick rhyme. Perfectly complemented with zany black-and-white illustrations, kids will gobble-up these 10 short stories. . . . Full of humor, fun, and an easy format that builds reading confidence, this selection is irresistible." --"Herald Tribune" (Sarasota, FL) Praise for "The Cat on The Mat Is Flat: ""Griffiths's innovative book for beginning readers collects nine short, intentionally silly snippets propelled by kid-pleasing, tongue-tripping verse . . . Denton's edgy, stick-figure-filled sketches enhance the zaniness factor and the offbeat, ironic humor." --"Publishers Weekly""Take one part Dr. Seuss, one part Edward Lear, place in a blender with a dash of Dav Pilkey and a bit of Cartoon Network juice . . . meant to be read as pure joy. It's a piece of candy eaten in secret between meals." --The Excelsior File (blog)"Definitely not your parents' easy reader, but perfect for fans of Lane Smith's "Happy Hockey Family."" --"Kirkus Reviews""This collection of stories is fun albeit with a touch of mayhem . . . This is a good book for beginning readers, in the same vein as "The Cat in the Hat" and "The Cat in the Hat Comes Back." It will likely spark a new rhyming nation of happy youngsters, some of whom will grow up to write their generation's outrageously funny advertising jingles . . . Any beginning reader will find it charmingly slapstick and fun." --Armchair Interviews
