Can we join Book Sharing Monday?! Before I do, these fantastic personalised bookplates arrived today from Etsy. You can't see very clearly but the image is of The Owl and The Pussycat. They are just gorgeous and I can't wait to put them in the Monkey's books. You can find Oiseaux here.
And our first bookshare is Splat the Cat, by Rob Scotton. I've chosen it because it is the first book that the Monkey has connected with. She squeals with delight when she turns the pages and sees Splat. I think it's because Splat bears more than a passing resemblance to our own Lady Macbeth (see top photo).
The story is about Splat's first day at school. He is very nervous and doesn't want to go, but he gets there in the end, bringing his friend Seymour the mouse. At school Splat learns that cats are AMAZING, they climb trees, drink milk and... chase mice!! Oh no, poor Seymour! You'll have to read the book to see how Seymour saves the day.
