The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That: Night Lights by Tish Rabe - OPTIONAL

Rabe, Tish  The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That: Night Lights  Illustrated by Aristides Ruiz and Joe Mathieu  Random House, 2014.  $4.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.  

Nick and Sally are two kids trying to make shadow puppets on the wall of their treehouse when their flashlight burns out.  The Cat in the Hat shows up and offers to shrink them and take them to see fireflies.  They fly in the Cat in the Hat’s machine among the fireflies and even save one from a spider web.  They return to their treehouse and a few fireflies help them make more shadow puppets.  

This story is told in rhyme and has bright cartoonish illustrations.  The book has certain pages that can glow in the dark and comes with some glow in the dark stickers.  The story was okay, but I felt like there could have been more information about fireflies.  

EL (K-3)-OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
