Lost Cat

If you’ve ever lost a cat, Lost Cat may be harder for you to read than the author may think. I will always feel the pain of losing my cat (found alright weeks later) and find it one of the hardest things for me to think about. So, I’m a bit critical just based on my own horror of this situation, but Lost Cat is actually very sweet. A bit haunting for me to look at the cover and think of what my lost cat went through, but I think anyone without that gauge would enjoy this heartwarming story and smiply gorgeous illustrations.

Sloth’s Shoes

The story of Sloth’s Shoes is sweet and fun and kids will love the parade of animals doting on Sloth on his birthday. But the words get a bit bogged-down. An editor (or further passes by the author) should’ve flagged “‘Peanuts!’ proffered the Pangolin.” as a bit challenging for parents to stop and explain to their little ones. The illustrations are fun but it is likely a one-time read. It doesn’t feel like one that you (or your kids) will grab time and time again.
