Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3 - Mr. Katapat "may look like an ordinary man, but really he is a great adventurer." He hunts for treasure in the jungle, travels through time, fights off pirates, and slays dragons - all through the pages of his favorite books from the local library. In fact, he wishes his everyday life could be just as exciting as the books he reads, until one day when, riding along on his unicycle with his nose in a book, he runs (literally) into the future Mrs. Katapat, likewise occupied. Barroux's whimsical, cartoon illustrations burst with thick strokes of color, whether Mr. Katapat is facing the greatest kung fu master in China or admiring the moon with his sweetheart. A light, charming tribute to the joys of reading. - Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By E. Fox on February 7, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This is another book that would be a fun introduction to the library for a storytime session. It begins with a rather ordinary fellow (normal except for his odd taste in striped, pointy hats) who escapes into adventures he finds in books. "If only his real life were as exciting" is his lament, while the readers are clued in that a female match for Mr. Katapat is nearby (same weird hat). Predictably, they meet...unpredictably, on unicycles. The book ends with them sharing literary adventures, "but that's another story." It's a sweet book that is pleasant enough, but lacks the depth and detail it needs to be popular with the age group it is written for. The illustrations are skillfully executed and serve the text well, but lack emotional appeal.

Mr. Katapat goes in various adventures in this cute children's book. What I love about this book is that it really highlights that reading a great book takes you on an adventure. The illustrations really highlight Mr. Katapat and his adventure. The story is good. I would recommend this book for a lesson on all of the places you can travel when reading a great book.
