If you haven’t read any of Rob Scotton’s books about Splat the cat, they are a must read! Splat is one of the most adorable cats I have ever seen (and this is coming from a dog only kind of gal). Splat is dreaming of candy fish when he is (rudely) awoken by his mom insisting that he takes a bath. Splat hates the bath, in fact, he hates water of any kind. As the day progresses, Splat is increasingly filled with dread. Spike is coming over for a play date and according to Splat, he is mean, calls Splat names and breaks all of his toys. At school, Splat has to go swimming and he forgets to wear any swim trunks! However, the end of the day finds Splat actually having fun in the pool and finding out that he has more in common with Spike than he realized. This is an adorably sweet book and a great read for any little ones with a fear of water.
