First sentence: Nice place they got here. Bed. Bowl. Blankie. Just like home! Or so I've been told.
Premise/plot: Won-Ton (not his *real* name) is a shelter cat who's been adopted by a young boy. The book tells--in verse--what happens next. If you love cats, then this one is a real treat. For example:
Your tummy, soft as/ warm dough. I kneed and kneed, then/ bake it with a nap.or
I explained it loud/ and clear. What part of "meow"/ don't you understand?or
Sorry about the/ squish in your shoe. Must've/ been something I ate.My thoughts: I do love cats. (Even though I'm allergic.) And this picture book alternates being cute and funny. I definitely enjoyed it.
