Publisher Comments:

If you give a cat a cupcake, he'll ask for some sprinkles to go with it. When you give him the sprinkles, he might spill some on the floor. Cleaning up will make him hot, so you'll give him a bathing suit . . . and that's just the beginning!

The lovable cat who first appeared in If You Give a Pig a Party now has his very own book! Written in the tradition of the bestselling If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond's newest story will show everyone that Cat is where it's at!

Review:

"If you give an adorable gray kitten a supporting role in a popular series, he'll cry out for a lead — and thus, this latest entry from Numeroff and Bond, which features a cat that first appeared in If You Give a Pig a Party. Like its predecessors, the story bubbles with cascading 'if... then' silliness: a girl's granting of a cupcake, for example, leads to a request for sprinkles, which causes a mess; cleaning up gets the cat overheated, which prompts a trip to the beach, and so forth. Some of the connections feel forced even for this series (a ride on a merry-go-round whale inspires a wish to go to a science museum), but the vivacity of the drawings and pertness of the kitty protagonist make up for the shortcomings. Besides, a lot of the series' appeal can be credited to the competency and ingenuity of the various human enablers in the books. While sometimes baffled by the goings-on, the girl in these pages is able to roll with the punches — unlike many adults. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 3 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The lovable cat who first appeared in "If You Give a Pig a Party" now stars in his very own book--the newest story in the "New York Times"-bestselling series. Full color.

My experience with this series has always been good. This one is my favorite. I used it in a nursery rhyme unit to go with Pat-A-Cake. The children wanted me to read it more than once. It's short, but sweet.
