To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This little character is just so much fun. It's his first day of school and he really didn't want to go, he made all the excuses and then brought his little pet mouse with him. The adventure they go on, the teacher and the class room of cats are so funny - because (cat's chase mice) but obviously Splat doesn't. I loved reading this and the kids really enjoyed it too. The images are really good, really detailed and the text is great for reading aloud. The author is probably famous for his other character Russell the Sheep which we all loved too. Suitable for 4 years upwards and worth having in your collection.
My three year old toddler loves Splat the Investigator and we read that over and over again hence I purchased this book. Unfortunately this story book does not appeal to him and I can understand as there is no real excitement, not like `Splat the Investigator'. This is a book about splat the cat who is worried about his first day at school and makes excuses up not to go. A little disappointing compared to the other title. The illustrations are very good.
My 3 year old daughter loves Splat. The large picture book format is glossy and the pictures are beautifully drawn. The continuity of characters throughout the series (Spike, Plank, Splat, Seymour etc) means younger readers feel a connection with them. The storylines are easy to understand and it almost feels like you are viewing works of art on every page as much as reading a book. Only thing to beware is that not all Splat books are the same size and some are 'based on the creation of Rob Scotton' rather than authored by Rob. Stick to the originals and you won't be dissapointed
