Description

Cat does NOT like Valentine's Day. It's much too mushy, and no way is he making a valentine for anyone- especially not his new neighbour, Dog. Dog refuses to respect the fence: he keeps tossing over old bones and a hitting Cat in the head! But just as Cat's about to send Dog an angry "valentine" telling him exactly what he can do with his bones, Dog throws a ball over the fence. What is Dog playing at? Cat is in for a hilarious - and heartwarming - surprise in this story about being perhaps too quick to judge.show more

Review quote

"Cat's facial expressions perfectly mimic those of a toddler and are captured within a pleasing soft palette of ink and color pencil drawings. Wry humor and a twist ending make this book a charmer." --The Washington Post * "Wickedly fun as ever--Underwood and Rueda clearly know how well sweet and salty go together." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Underwood's endearing, voiceless cat is back, this time getting a lesson in Valentine's Day tact. . . . Rueda masterfully uses white space and Cat's facial expressions and body language . . . for beautifully pitched comic timing. Cat hasn't lost his ability to charm readers, if for no other reason than children are so able to see themselves in him." --Kirkus Reviews "Fresh and satisfying . . . Empowers kids by positioning them as the narrative voice of reason. . . . Cat is a hoot at the height of his naughtiness, but also he's poignantly repentant . . . Fans of Cat's previous books (and even Valentine's Day-phobes) are likely to fall in love with this series installment." --BCCB"Creatively presented . . . Humorous . . . The story's singular narrative style and simple but expressive illustrations will make it a favorite . . . Pair it with Laura Malone Elliott's A String of Hearts." --School Library Journal Praise for "Here Comes Valentine Cat" "Cat's facial expressions perfectly mimic those of a toddler and are captured within a pleasing soft palette of ink and color pencil drawings.
