About the Author

Rob Scotton studied at Leicester Polytechnic. He lives in Rutland with his wife, Liz, who is also an artist. Rob only had to look out of his studio window to find the inspiration for his books about Russell the Sheep. The rolling countryside surrounding his home is brimming with sheep, other wildlife, sheep, rural beauty and more sheep!


K-Gr 2-In this follow-up to Splat the Cat (HarperCollins, 2008), the fuzzy black feline learns that bigger isn't better when it comes to Valentine's Day cards. Splat has a crush on Kitten, a fluffy white cat with pea-green eyes, but he isn't the only one. Self-assured Spike informs Splat that he likes her much more and has prepared a superior Valentine to prove it. Discouraged, Splat tosses his tribute into the trash. Kitten smiles as she receives Spike's card but doesn't swoon as she reads, "You are so lucky that I like you." Happily, she notices the little red envelope in the trash and surprises Splat with a pink Valentine that leaves him grinning from ear to ear. The cartoon-style illustrations have a contemporary, quirky feel due to the monochromatic palette, which is punctuated with brightly colored details. Children will giggle at Splat's awkward interactions with Kitten and smile at the story's satisfying conclusion.-Lisa Glasscock, Columbine Public Library, Littleton, CO Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
