OMG I could not stop laughing. I know, it's probably silly to give a humorous picture book five stars, but I truly thought this was 'amazingly' clever. Don't take my word for it; go to your library and get it for yourself. ( )

I think this is a really cute, silly book. I think the illustrations add a lot to the story. They are detailed and bright which children love. This story is organized in a non traditional way which I think is attention grabbing. It puts the reader involved and active in the story. I think this is a book that kids would love to read on their own time, and can relate to the book in many ways. Melanie Watt did a great job writing a unique book,that children will love. I enjoyed the simple language, and find this to be a fun text to read. ( )

This book is so cute. It's funny, and keeps the reader's interest with all of thee red ink crossing out the page. ( )

29 months - Not my favorite style of book, this would be a much better self read book than read aloud. O loves cats so she of course thinks Chester is cute and funny. ( )

For Marcos, Eva, Melina and Laya (crossed out)

For Chester because I couldn't have made this book without him. He's the smartest, most handsome cat in the world. I wish I could be lie him someday.
