What will Fat Cat sit on? The pig? (Oink!) The chicken? (Cluck!) How about the dog? (Grrrr.)
Everyone in this bumbling animal gang (understandably) hopes the victim will be someone else! Leave it to Mouse to come up with a brilliant solution that satisfies everyone, even Fat Cat himself. Filled with hilarious asides and an interactive question-answer format, this irreverent young picture book will delight toddlers who love to shout "NO!"

Praise For What Will Fat Cat Sit On? (The Giggle Gang)…
"Familiar animals, repetitive text and heavily outlined page-filling graphic illustrations add up to a lot of laughs. This is a book that toddlers and new readers will reach for again and again."
— Kirkus Reviews
“Fat Cat’s sheepish grin is the running punch line in this cheerful, boldly designed picture book. Fun to read aloud, it would also make an effective early reader for preschoolers. . . . By the end, the cow, a pig, a dog and a chicken can be thankful to a mouse for providing a nice fat chair.”
— New York Times Book Review
* “Thomas, in a rollicking and highly promising debut, makes this book a laugh-out-loud pas de deux between Dick-and-Jane-get-stylish typography and the supremely silly visual evocation of high anxiety.” (starred review)
