Scotton, Rob Splat the Cat: The Perfect Present for Mom and Dad Harper, 2012. $4.99 PICTURE BOOK  Content: G. 
Splat wants to make something great for his mom and dad, so he draws and cuts out a cute orange fish.  When he goes to show it to his brother and sister, he sees that they are also creating something for his parents, and he wants his to be the best, so he goes back to his room and makes a whole mobile of fish.  The siblings’ gifts keep getting fancier, until finally they decide to join forces and make something together.  They make a paper fish tank using all their crafts and their parents love it, but some seagulls seem to think the fish tank looks like the lunch and they destroy it.  Splat’s parents tell the kids that they love them regardless of the gift. 
This book has adorable illustrations and bright pictures to keep the interest of little readers.  The storyline has a great message of working together within a family.  The storyline is simple and easy to follow.
