CAT IS BACK AT BAT

Reviews:

*SEQUEL TO "CAT AT BAT"

"Stadler offers readers an awful lot of fun in just a few words. The short text ("The cat is back at bat") is perfectly illustrated with a picture of a cat up at the plate, using his bandaged tail as a bat. Umpire and catcher are looking at him askance. So it goes, a shark hears a bark in the park and runs from the little dog chasing him. But the pictures are not always obvious: a moose and a goose run loose because they are robbers, fleeing from a bank, dropping money out of holes in their bags. Kids learning to read couldn't have an easier, more enticing beginning."
*Booklist*

"On each double spread of this amusing VERY easy reader, Stadler links three rhyming words in a brief sentence and illustrates the silly results...
Good practice for novices, who may want to make up their own rhymed, comical situations."
*Kirkus Reviews*

"Fourteen silly rhymed bits about different animals, designed to keep beginning readers smiling as they learn... The detailed, humorously outlandish pictures provide an opportunity for a more complicated conversation than the words provide."
*School Library Journal*

The cat is back at bat.
An ape in a cape has a scrape.
A goat in a coat sails a boat.
A fat rat wears a hat.
A crab tries to grab a cab.
