Synopsis

Here Comes Santa Cat by Deborah Underwood

It's Christmas time, and Cat has a hunch that he's not on Santa's nice list. Which means no presents for Cat. So Cat tries to be good. (Well, first he tries to actually be Santa.) But being nice is so much work! And it never seems to go right. Fortunately, Cat's heart is in the right place, and he surprises even himself with a show of holiday generosity that will make even the Grinchiest readers smile. Best of all? Cat gets to meet the great man in the red suit himself and perhaps Santa does have something for Cat after all.

Reviews

Praise for Here Comes Santa Cat * Excellent . . . An ideal holiday pick for the naughty and nice alike. Publishers Weekly, starred review * Readers will enjoy the playful exchange between the narrator and Cat, the expressive full-color ink and colored-pencil cartoonlike illustrations, and the nicely resolved ending. Great for reading one-on-one or in small groups. School Library Journal, starred review

Will keep kids giggling. Underwood and Rueda s spot-on use of comedic timing, page turns, white space, and layout creates another holiday winner. Horn Book

Cat s expressive wordless communications and the narrator s voice by turns kindly, jovial, and exasperated are as diverting as they were in the first tale. . . . Kids will easily relate to Cat s childlike demeanor and his grumpiness at the thought of going presentless on Christmas. This would make an excellent selection for holiday gift-giving. BCCB There is a sweetness to this story that illustrates the joy of sharing in a manner that is refreshingly free of goody-goody or didactic sentiment. . . . Get yourself and all the little ones in your life a copy of Here Comes Santa Cat, and you will all treasure it for years to come. Katrina Fleming for OurHenHouse.org
