Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—In this follow-up to Splat the Cat (HarperCollins, 2008), the fuzzy black feline learns that bigger isn't better when it comes to Valentine's Day cards. Splat has a crush on Kitten, a fluffy white cat with pea-green eyes, but he isn't the only one. Self-assured Spike informs Splat that he likes her much more and has prepared a superior Valentine to prove it. Discouraged, Splat tosses his tribute into the trash. Kitten smiles as she receives Spike's card but doesn't swoon as she reads, "You are so lucky that I like you." Happily, she notices the little red envelope in the trash and surprises Splat with a pink Valentine that leaves him grinning from ear to ear. The cartoon-style illustrations have a contemporary, quirky feel due to the monochromatic palette, which is punctuated with brightly colored details. Children will giggle at Splat's awkward interactions with Kitten and smile at the story's satisfying conclusion.—Lisa Glasscock, Columbine Public Library, Littleton, CO

From Booklist

The lovable but insecure feline from Splat the Cat (2008) returns to celebrate Valentine’s Day. He has a crush on Kitten, but whenever they meet she pulls his ears, ties his tail, and calls him smelly. His classmate Spike—who has his own crush on Kitten—does his best to convince Splat that Kitten doesn’t return his affections. Fortunately, Kitten is able to see through Spike’s amorous professions, leading to a happy Valentine exchange. Scotton’s cartoon-style artwork features animals rendered in black-and-gray tones using vividly colored human accessories. A perfect choice for Valentine story hours or for Splat fans any time of the year. Preschool-Grade 1. --Kay Weisman

Format: Hardcover
My daughter (almost 3 years) and I have also read "Splat the Cat," but we prefer the sequel "Love, Splat." It is a funny story, about butterflies, love and of course hilarious kitty encounters. There are plenty of fun details for both kids and parents:

- did you know that cats like fish bone wallpaper?
- did you know that cats use a real toilet?
- did you know that cats have mouse pets (riding bikes)?
- did you know that the street names have real meaning?

You can not but love Splat. He is perhaps a bit clumsy, but so adorable. My daughter loves his books and keeps asking for more. Now there you have it: a winner! I love the book because it never gets boring (even if you have to read it over and over). My daughter and I give it four thumbs up!

Splat is the most adorable cat ever! I am studying to be a teacher and this book will absolutely be used in my classroom. He is so kid-friendly and his feelings are relatable. This book would be great for Valentine's Day, entertainment, or to talk about relationships. This book, as well as the other Splat books are a must for any teacher or child's library. I subbed for a kindergarten class a few days before Valentine's Day and they were glued to this book.

This has to be the silly little cat ever. My kids just loved this book...now, if I could only get them to stop pulling each others ears and poking each others belly:)

Splat returns in this lovely sequel. This book can easily be read as a stand alone.
Splat has Valentine's Day card for all in his class especially one for Kitten. But wait, Spike like kitten too and his card is MUCH bigger. Splat loses hope but Kitten steps in with her card for Splat.
There is not a large color palate here but it isn't necessary. Splat's emotions shine through and his big heart shows.This would be a good book to read to a young child.

This is the third Splat the Cat book I've bought for my 2 year old son, and it may be the best! It lives up to the other Splat books - well written with great illustrations. My son has chosen this as his bedtime story every night for two weeks. Can't recommend it highly enough. Just make sure when reading it to pull your child's ears and poke their belly at the appropriate time!

My three year old granddaughter really enjoys this book. She asks me to read it to her every Friday when she comes over. The story is very enjoyable and the illustrations are fantastic. The book arrived a few days after I placed the order.

I just love Rob Scotton's illustration work. His attention to detail is just wonderful. And the story - it's great too, and dare I give it away, lets just say it has a happy ending. :)
