Product Details


A guileless, off-site narrator futilely entreats Fluffykins—green-eyed, ginger-furred, and utterly recalcitrant—to apologize for successive misdeeds. . . O’Byrne ever so lightly anthropomorphizes her protagonist’s expressions, the cat’s heavy-lidded glare modulated by tiny changes in mouth position that give the cat a distinctively evil look—dramatically magnified by a view through the goldfish bowl on the final page. . . readers inclined to indulge feline mischief will chuckle at the extremes on display.
—Kirkus Reviews

With bold serifed text, crisp white backgrounds, and digital art reminiscent of colored pencils, O’Byrne tells a simple, charming tale that rings true for anyone who cohabits with a cat. Giggles will abound as Fluffykins gleefully wreaks havoc, and the narrator’s admonishments and Fluffykins’s mischievous antics (complete with an utterly feline scowl) will make this a sure favorite for group storytime. This will be a great pick for fans who appreciate the willful chaos of Shannon’s David or Mo Willems’s Pigeon.
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
