Splat Says Thank You!

Rob Scotton. Harper, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-06-197874-6
Splat the cat has had his share of misadventures, and his mouse friend Seymour has always been there for him. When Seymour is sick in bed with purple spots, Splat gets to return the favor, taking Seymour down memory lane via a “Friendship Book” Splat has put together. As Splat reads aloud to Seymour, their past experiences together play out episodically (“When I had my bath and got my toe stuck, you knew what to do. ‘Thank you!’ And when I went to bed early, you sneaked me a flashlight so I could read my book,’ said Splat. ‘Thank you!’ ”). Scotton’s illustrations of furry, wide-eyed Splat and his friends remain gratifying in their 3D surrealism, even if this backward-looking offering is tamer than Splat’s previous books. Ages 4–8. Agent: Bob Stein, Pryor Cashman LLP. (Oct.)
