A to Z: U – Underwood, Deborah


You know, when we get into these letters at the end of the alphabet, it gets harder to find books with those letters in the titles. So, we have to get a little creative!! Deborah Underwood is the author of the Here Comes — Cat books. I’m just sharing the Christmas one, but the rest are pictured at the end of the post!

From the dust jacket, “Ho, ho…who? Cat! Not again. the holidays are around the corner, and Cat knows what he has to do. But being nice…it doesn’t come naturally. Still, Christmas is a time of year for miracles and with a little luck, even Cat may find the holiday spirit—and a festive surprise of his own.”

Cat is one of LoC’s favorite recurring characters. I reviewed “Here Comes Easter Cat”, “Here Comes the Tooth Fairy Cat” , and “Here Comes Valentine Cat.” Love, love, love “Here Come … Cat” books! His expressions are priceless! In the illustrations below you’ll see what I mean. The book is written to be read aloud – at least that’s the way I read it – I like to read it to my fursiblings so they can laugh, too.

In this book, Cat dresses up as Santa so he can give himself a Christmas gift – he doesn’t quite understand the process of giving just yet. But he learns and gets a very special treat in the end! Maybe this would be a good book for some naughty kittens out there so they can learn to be nice!! No negatives on these pages. Just wonderful, fabulous, laugh-out-loud-funny Cat!!!!

Rating 5 out of 5 paws – and we wouldn’t have it any other way!!!!
