LOVE, SPLAT by Rob Scotton.

love-splat1Hilarious take on the Valentine’s Day dilemma.  Poor Splat adores Kitten, in fact he likes her “more than fish sticks and ice cream”.  But whenever Kitten saw Splat, “she pulled his ears and poked his belly/tied his tail and called him smelly” and she’d run away.  Splat just can’t get up enough nerve to give Kitten the special red valentine and when self assured Spike seems to outdo Splat in every expression of affection for Kitten, Splat fears all is lost.  When Kitten reads Spike’s card (“You are so lucky I like you”), she tosses it in the garbage and gives Splat a lovely Valentine.   

Insecure Splat, with his rumbly tummy and rubbery legs will have readers rooting for his suit versus the conceited grinning Spike.  Delightfully depicted with fuzzy fur and spindly legs, the goofy Splat is a winner in this sweet and satisfying Valentine story.

Picture Book

Highly Recommended, Diane McCrink (Yonkers Will)
