Scaredy-Cat, Splat!

Rob Scotton, Harper, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-06-117760-6

In Splat's latest holiday adventure, his "witch's cat" Halloween costume meets with an accident, so his mother uses a spider as inspiration to make him a new one. Unfortunately, his friends Spike and Plank don't even blink when he dons his "big, scary sock spider" costume, and Splat doubts he'll win the school prize for scariest cat. Splat's perma-flustered expression and the eye-popping dramatics of his fellow cats are particularly well suited to the chills of Halloween. Ages 3–7. (Sept.)
