The Cat and the Rat and the Hat
Publisher: Nosy Crow
Cat adores playing on his favourite yellow mat, which is so brilliant that it even gives him sweet dreams. Then, along comes Rat with a spectacular pink hat. Suddenly, the once-content Cat wants Rat’s hat and will stop at NOTHING to get it.
Yet when Bat arrives, wearing a fancy cravat, no less, what could be better than that? Chaos ensues as both Cat and Rat decide they MUST have Bat’s fancy cravat for themselves.
Featuring a hilarious tongue-twister text, this raucous, rhyming tale will have both kids and adults laughing out loud from start to finish. Not only is this a fun, silly read, it’s also a great book to help promote talk, play, rhyme and encourage children to join in with the words because of the repeated hat/mat/cravat sounds – and it’s perfect for developing confidence with phonics, too.
Matt Hunt’s vibrant, deliciously neon illustrations ensure that the animal antics jump off the page. Little ones will enjoy twisting and turning the book around to look at the vertical double-page spreads filled with energetic comic capers.
