Just in time for the holidays-here comes Santa Cat! From the New York Times bestselling author of Interstellar Cinderalla , The Quiet Book , and Here Comes the Easter Cat comes a hilarious holiday adventure that's perfect for fans of Narwhal and Jelly, Elephant and Piggie, and holiday gift-giving.

Christmas is coming, and Cat has a hunch he's not on Santa's "nice" list. But Cat knows what to do-dress up as Santa! What better way to be sure he gets a present? "Instead of being Santa," the narrator gently suggests, "why don't you just try to be nice?" Doubtful at first, Cat quickly warms to the holiday spirit, but his attempts at gift-giving, caroling, and tree-decorating go hilariously awry. There are wonders still in store, though, and this holiday, Cat might surprise even himself with his capacity for generosity. He may also get a visit from the man in the red suit and an extraordinary surprise of his own. Readers of all ages will delight in this unsentimental holiday treat with a surprisingly sweet center.

"There is a sweetness to this story that illustrates the joy of sharing in a manner that is refreshingly free of goody-goody or didactic sentiment. . . . Get yourself-and all the little ones in your life-a copy of Here Comes Santa Cat , and you will all treasure it for years to come."-Katrina Fleming for

_x2605_"Excellent . . . An ideal holiday pick for the naughty and nice alike." - PublishersWeekly ,starred review

Booklist Review: "An unseen narrator keeps up a funny conversation with a nontalking cat dressed in a Santa suit. When asked why he's wearing the costume, Cat hold up a poster showing Santa (labeled Me) giving a present to a cat (also me). So what's the deal? Cat thinks he's been a bad kitty and doesn't have time to get off the naughty list. This is loads of clever fun, jumping back and forth between the questioner's understated queries and the amusing answers given in pictures or pantomime. Cat, boldly standing out on white pages, eventually makes for an excellent holiday hero. Adults and children will both have fun with this.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Underwood and Rueda follow Here Comes the Easter Cat with an equally excellent outing that sees Cat attempting to assume the role of another holiday icon. Cat is concerned that he's been too naughty during the past year (and he has a pie chart to prove it), so he dresses up as Santa-what better way to ensure he gets a gift? As in the previous book, the back-and-forth between Cat and an unseen narrator propels the story's humor. "Instead of trying to be Santa, why don't you just try to be nice?" suggests the narrator before coaching Cat through a few less-than-successful attempts at caroling and tree decorating ("Wow," says the narrator, opposite an image of Cat thoroughly wrapped up in a string of lights). An ideal holiday pick for the naughty and nice alike. Ages 3-5. Author's agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
