Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Love, Splat: "This heart-warming story should melt even the flintiest cynic. Scotton's frenetic illustrations are spot on and vivid enough to stroke. Buy this book for anyone you 'like more than fish fingers and ice-cream'..." Daily Mail "A very sweet story, beautifully illustrated." Norwich Evening News Praise for 'Russell the Sheep': 'Russell the Sheep is completely engaging and bound to become a star of the future.' The Bookseller 'This is the delicious tale of a sheep who can't sleep.' Daily Express --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am a first grade teacher and my students love Splat. The illustrations are engaging and adorable. Each time we read it the kids find something new in the illustration that they had not noticed before. Splat also encounters problems that children can relate to. They have many of the same fears that Splat has in Scotton's books. Not only have I used the Splat books for pure pleasure, but for reading response, giving students an opportunity to relate to the experiences Splat has.

Pictures were great but story wording left something to be desired. Not sure I would purchase other books by this author.

Splat is not having a good day. First, his mom wakes him up in the middle of a candy fish dream. Then she tells him that his arch-nemesis Spike is coming over after school. Oh, and swim lessons start today. But as almost any cat will tell you, water is horrible and scary and wet. The day keeps getting worse and worse. How will Splat handle it all?

This is a cute story, but for whatever reason I didn't think it was as great as some of author/illustrator Rob Scatton's earlier books like SPLAT THE CAT; LOVE, SPLAT; and MERRY CHRISTMAS, SPLAT. Young fans will probably enjoy the story, but if you are new to the series, you are probably better off choosing a different book.

We are big Splat the Cat fans and have many of the books. I tend to like those authored by Rob Scotton more than the "I Can Read" books authored by the publisher, but this one is not a favorite. There are words used in this book that I change, like calling someone a "loser" when other words could easily have been substituted (last one to the other side of the pool is a "loser" could easily have been "rotten egg" or something of that ilk). Not sure why an author of children's books or an editor of children's books would use words like that. Its unecessary for the story.

Having seen Splat the Cats popularity here on Amazon, this was the first book of his we bought. I think it is just terrible. The story and the wording doesn't "flow" from one part of Splat's day to the next. Maybe it is supposed to be this way, but the sentences leave you tongue tied and tripping over the words constantly. Personally, I find that rather annoying... especially since the author doesn't use rhyming in the traditional way. Still giving it two stars as it is a book my son likes me to read to him.... since he is two, I find myself making up my own story for splat as we go along instead of reading the actual story.

My grandsons (4.5 & 2.5) love this character so much because he looks a lot like their 29 pound Russian Blue. Just bought a 4-5? book set for more adventures!

This is just what I wanted. A picture book with excellent pictures and a nice story. I have it on my tablet for my grandson and I to enjoy together.

If you are looking for a easy reading series for a preschooler this is it! The adventures are fun and the art is wonderful.
