The first day of school can be scary, even for cats. A black, fuzzy fellow, Splat decides that bringing Seymour, his pet mouse, will help. Unfortunately, it's a school filled with cats, well known enthusiasts of mice-sized snacks. When lunch time comes around, what on earth is Splat going to do? Filled with lots of silliness, self esteem-building text, and suspense, this charmer is accompanied by Rob Scotton's amusing illustrations.
It's Splat's first day of school and he's worried. What if he doesn't make any new friends? Just in case, Splat decides to bring along his pet mouse, Seymour, and hides him in his lunchbox. The teacher, Mrs. Wimpydimple, introduces Splat to the class and he soon starts learning all his important cat lessons. But when Seymour escapes and the cats do what cats do (they chase mice!), Splat's worried again. Maybe now he'll lose all his friends, old and new! Just in time, wise Mrs. Wimpydimple takes charge and teaches everyone an important new lesson. Maybe Cat School is going to be okay after all!
