Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's Valentine's Day, and Splat and his friends want to give Mrs. Wimpydimple something special. Lift the flaps to find out what—and reveal hidden holiday surprises!

Review:

"'Don't forget to bring in something for your special valentine,' Mrs. Wimpydimple reminds Splat's class in this lift-the-flap holiday tale. Instead of panicking, the typically anxious cat draws up a quick solution. Scotton builds suspense through the book's many flaps: in one scene, the door to Splat's clubhouse swings open to reveal his friends Kitten and Spike arriving with a gargantuan box of supplies. The project remains a mystery as Kitten sews a 'mouse-sized costume' behind a sewing basket — shaped flap, and Splat, concealed by a pile of crumpled paper, works on rhymes. With all the buildup, the reveal of Splat's red valentine surprise is anticlimactic; since its recipient is Mrs. Wimpydimple, however, the book is a natural gift choice for a child's teacher. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
