A collection of simple, witty story poems told in engaging rhyming couplets. The Cat on the Mat is Flat is followed by others about the Duck in the Truck in the Muck and Ed and Ted and Ted’s Dog Fred. All have a strong rhythm to carry the story on and all include a large dose of humour.

Synopsis

The Cat on The Mat is Flat by Andy Griffiths

Features a rat with a bat and a very flat cat and a frog in a bog with a jet-rocket log, but the duck in the truck might just suck them all up. This work presents a collection of utterly nonsensical, totally irreverent rhymes.

Reviews

Praise for The Cat on the Mat is Flat : Imagine the outcome if Dr. Seuss, Dav Pilkey, and Lane Smith were locked in a room until they came up with a book for beginning or reluctant readers. These nine rhyming stories have action galore, plenty of dialogue, and ample pen-and-ink illustrations, all wrapped up in humor . . . Even young people who are struggling to get the hang of reading may happily handle all 176 crazy pages. -- School Library Journal Griffiths's innovative book for beginning readers collects nine short, intentionally silly snippets propelled by kid-pleasing, tongue-tripping verse . . . Denton's edgy, stick-figure-filled sketches enhance the zaniness factor and the offbeat, ironic humor. -- Publishers Weekly Take one part Dr. Seuss, one part Edward Lear, place in a blender with a dash of Dav Pilkey and a bit of Cartoon Network juice . . . meant to be read as pure joy. It's a piece of candy eaten in secret between meals. --The Excelsior File (blog) Definitely not your parents

About the Author

Andy Griffiths

Andy Griffiths is a popular, bestselling kids author from Australia and is Terry's best mate. The Day My Butt Went Psycho! is his first title published in the United States. He has won rave reviews from kids and adults alike for The Day My Butt Went Psycho! and his other hilarious titles. Andy lives with his wife and two daughters in Melbourne, Australia where he divides his time between storywriting and butt-fighting.

Andy gets his wild and funny story ideas from ordinary life, he is a passionate advocate for literacy and thrives on having an audience (he's been the lead singer in a rock band). When he is not writing kids books, he is in constant demand to speak at schools (he's worked as a high school teacher) and writing workshops. His easy going manner, and his side-splitting sense of humor (he's been a stand-up comedian) all combine to make him popular with students of all ages.
