Here Comes Santa Cat by Deborah Underwood
Cat took on a bunny in Here Comes the Easter Cat, but now Christmas is coming, and Cat has a hunch he’s not on Santa’s “nice” list. Which means? No presents for Cat. So he tries to be good, but children, it seems, aren’t wild for his brand of gift-giving. Still, Cat might surprise himself, and best of all, he may just get to meet the man in the red suit himself—and receive a holiday surprise of his own. Fans of Pete the Cat, Splat the Cat, and Bad Kitty will delight in this holiday treat.
After reading and loving Deborah Underwood’s Here Comes the Tooth Fairy Cat, I had to reserve this book for Christmas. I ended up including it in our book advent calendar, but, unfortunately, Christopher opened it on a night that Jim put him to bed, so I missed his original reaction. I convinced him to read it again a few days later.
This book is cute and funny. Like Underwood’s Tooth Fair Cat book, it is written as the narrator talking to Cat. I really like her writing style.
Cat is worried that he won’t get any presents from Santa Claus because he’s been too naughty this year. The narrator tells him it’s not too late to do something nice. Cat tries many things that keep going badly until he finally gets it right.
It’s a sweet story with a good moral. The humor kept my son interested, and the second time through he was anticipating the really funny parts.
