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!
Splat and Spike have just one more house to hit up on Halloween night the spooky one. Unfortunately, their mouse friend Seymour hightails it inside, leaving Splat and Spike to navigate the cobweb-strewn corridors of the old house. Large flaps on nearly every page lift to reveal the innocuous objects behind the scary-looking shapes and shadows as the two freaked-out kitties search for their errant friend. Though the three friends leave the house safe and sound (the ghosts and vampire ducks they do find basically leave them alone), Scotton provides just enough scares to keep readers on edge. Ages 4 8.

It is a good littie kid book y
Better story when it was a big
I suggest reading Bugville Critters Go To School, which was published years before this. In that book, Buster Bee is nervous about his first day of B. Havior school. When he goes to school he meets his teacher Mrs. Beeswax and then starts learning his bug lessons. Sound familiar? It should, since Splat the Cat has the SAME story.
