PreS-Gr 2–In the 12 days leading up to Christmas, cats enjoy the holiday season their way by batting bows, wearing dress-up clothes, and sitting on presents. Some of them take a nap under the tree, while others shred the wrapping paper. They even help out Santa. Their antics get even messier when they climb the tree, causing it to fall in an epic and amusing fashion. As a bonus, readers can meet the 12 cats and one kitten at the end of the book, where they learn the cats’ names, likes, dislikes, and favorite Christmas activities. This feline-filled rendition of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is a fun read. As one would expect with so many cats, chaos and mischief ensue during this; readers will enjoy every minute. The eye-catching illustrations hilariously capture the cats’ personalities, emotions, and eventual destruction of the holiday decorations.
VERDICT A feline-filled “The Twelve Days of Christmas” sure to delight picture book readers and cat lovers. A purrfect purchase.
