It's Valentine's Day and Splat has a special valentine for a certain someone in his class. Her name is Kitten, and Splat likes her even more than fish sticks and ice cream. But Kitten doesn't seem to like him at all--she always ties his tail and pokes his belly when she sees him. And then there's Splat's rival, Spike, who also likes Kitten. Will Splat's heartfelt valentine win Kitten's paw in the end?

In this funny follow-up to "Splat the Cat," Rob Scotton captures the highs and lows of a first crush with humor and understanding. -quoted from Goodreads

This is a must have for Splat fans! Being the big Splat fans we are (meaning my kiddos and I), we couldn't wait to sit down and read this book when it arrived. Splat is so excited for Valentine's Day, because he's finally mustered up the courage to give his special Valentine to his crush, Kitten. Splat and Kitten have a really cute, innocent childhood friendship/crush on each other, which makes this story all the more adorable. I love that both Splat and Kitten made each other special Valentine's. Splat fans will enjoy this sweet Valentine Day treat. I highly recommend it!
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
