Here Comes Santa Cat

From the dust jacket, “Ho, ho…who? Cat! Not again. the holidays are around the corner, and Cat knows what he has to do. But being nice…it doesn’t come naturally. Still, Christmas is a time of year for miracles and with a little luck, even Cat may find the holiday spirit—and a festive surprise of his own.”
Cat is one of LoC’s favorite recurring characters. I reviewed “Here Comes Easter Cat” and “Here Comes the Tooth Fairy Cat” earlier this year (click on the titles for those reviews) and I even have one more, but that one doesn’t come out until next year. Love, love, love “Here Come … Cat” books! His expressions are priceless! In the illustrations below you’ll see what I mean. The book is written to be read aloud – at least that’s the way I read it – I like to read it to my fursiblings so they can laugh, too.
In this book, Cat dresses up as Santa so he can give himself a Christmas gift – he doesn’t quite understand the process of giving just yet. But he learns and gets a very special treat in the end! Maybe this would be a good book for some naughty kittens out there so they can learn to be nice!! No negatives on these pages. Just wonderful, fabulous, laugh-out-loud-funny Cat!!!!
Rating 5 out of 5 paws – and we wouldn’t have it any other way!!!!
