The Cat on The Mat is Flat Synopsis

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.

The Cat on The Mat is Flat Press Reviews

meant to be read as pure joy. It's a piece of candy eaten in secret between meals. - The Excelsior File

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

This collection of stories is fun albeit with a touch of mayhem . . . This is a good book for beginning readers, in the same vein as The Cat in the Hat and The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, It will likely spark a new rhyming nation of happy youngsters, some of whom will grow up to write their generation's outrageously funny advertising jingles . . . Any beginning reader will find it charmingly slapstick and fun. --Armchair Interviews
