Summary :In this short story, it’s almost Valentine’s Day. Nightcat and the children are planning a Friendship Festival. But they find out that not all the dragons are gone! Will Nightcat be able to deliver the invitations in time? And who is the little green fellow?
I am a big kid at heart (probably why all the little ones think I'm the Coolest.Adult.Ever) - I color, watch cartoons, love playing hide-n-seek - and find all kinds of cool books to share. If it's a kid book and it looks interesting - I'm there. I had been looking at Kitty Castle: Halloween (considering getting it for next year) when I found out about an r2r for this book. It's almost Valentine's Day - the little girls love cats - let's go.
I have to say - I was a little disappointed. And I don't really look at these books from an adult's point of view (I don't nitpick the grammar or any of that jazz) - I try to enjoy it just like I would have when I was young (it's more enjoyable that way). This one had kitties (yay!), dragons (double yay!) and even a leprechaun (YAY!). And absolutely no pictures. How sad. This book could have been WAY better with pictures. It would have kept their attention (and mind) a lot more - and the kids were a little ho-hum about the whole thing.
It was a cute story, though. I give the author that. But just not cute enough for the little ones and that's who it was written for.
I still might give the Halloween one a chance. I don't know yet.
