Book review #287: Here Comes the Easter Cat #bookaday

Here Comes the Easter Cat coverby Deborah Underwood; pictures by Claudia Rueda
Picture book
Interest level: K-3
Reading level: 1.7
4 out of 5 stars

This is a fun and adorable book. Everyone looks forward to a visit from the Easter Bunny, except for Cat, who is a little put out with all the attention that the Bunny gets. He comes up with his own Easter plan, complete with sparkly clothes and a motorcycle. Cat comes to really appreciate the Easter Bunny and hatches an even better plan in the end.

There is tremendously witty banter between the narrator and Cat, who has priceless facial expressions. This is a unique and fun option for holiday reading. I love that this book is different in size compared to most picture books — it is smaller and thicker. Very creative and unique all around!
