Review quote

"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 on The Cat on the Mat is Flat

"Meant to be read as pure joy. It's a piece of candy eaten in secret between meals." --The Excelsior File on The Cat on the Mat is Flat

"Perfect for fans of Lane Smith's Happy Hocky Family." --Kirkus Reviews on The Cat on the Mat is Flat
