Praise For The Cat, the Rat, and the Baseball Bat (My Readers)

“Griffiths's innovative book for beginning readers collects nine short, intentionally silly snippets propelled by kid-pleasing, tongue-tripping verse. . . . Denton's edgy, stick-figure-filled sketches enhance the zaniness factor and the offbeat, ironic humor.” —Publishers Weekly on The Cat on the Mat is Flat

“Meant to be read as pure joy. It's a piece of candy eaten in secret between meals.” —The Excelsior File on The Cat on the Mat is Flat

“Perfect for fans of Lane Smith's Happy Hocky Family.” —Kirkus Reviews on The Cat on the Mat is Flat
