PRAISE FOR How to Give Your Cat a Bath in Five Easy Steps:

“This laugh-out-loud picture book can serve as a beginning reader. . . . The inevitable ending will delight both children and adults and this title will be requested over and over.” —Starred Review, Booklist

“Early-years students will love the humour and irony of the situation. Highly recommended.” —Highly Recommended, Resource Links

“As the chaos unfolds, viewers will be delighted to track the cat through the chase scenes. . . . There’s a wry humor in the unseen narrator’s directives, and the text makes a particularly amusing counterpart to the little girl’s visibly increasing frustration with the whole endeavor.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“[A] pleasing and well-executed story that really is the cat’s meow. An excellent choice for independent reading and sharing in small groups.” —School Library Journal

“Everyone will appreciate this delightful book.” Imaginary Elevators

“Martz’s expressive art lays out the runaway circumstances through vignettelike passages and dialogue balloons, capturing the experience of well-laid plans quickly unraveling into disaster.” –Publishers Weekly

“Adorably frustrating . . . will have young readers slapping their foreheads in exasperation, but will reward them with a sweet, funny ending . . . Martz’s colourful line drawings match the happy, manic energy.” –New York Times

“Delightfully entertaining.” –Midwest Book Review
