Lost Cat (Review)
My 3-year old son had me read this twice at the library and then begged to bring it home. I guess he couldn't pass up those eyes on the front cover! This book is "Lost Cat" by C. Roger Mader.
The story is a little far-fetched, but it sure made my kids (3 and 4) very happy with the ending! Poor Slipper the cat gets left behind on moving day. She sets out on an adventure to find a new person to adopt. There is something wrong with everyone she finds though. You just know she won't be satisfied with anyone other than her previous owner, Mrs. Fluffy Slippers.
I think this story is cute. It's fun to read and I like the attitude the cat has. For instance, one person she comes across is really nice, but she is a dog owner. Slipper thinks to herself that she could have adopted the woman, but that dog? Never!
This is one that has been read over and over in our house and my kids really enjoy it. As an adult you may see the ending coming (actually, even my 4-year old guessed it) but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable for the kids.
