Porridge the Tartan Cat and the Bash-Crash-Ding by Alan Dapré and Yuliya Somina

This is a fun, nonsensical story about a cat that has fur colored like a tartan.  He lives with his family and tries to keep them safe and well informed.  It would work a lot better if they understood his meows...

Myrick Marketing & Media and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It is being published today.

You can tell when you begin to read this story that it's written by someone with a sense of humor.  After all, the cat lives by Loch Loch with the quirky McFun family: Gadget Grandad, Groovy Gran, Dino Dad, Mini Mum and the twins, Roaring Ross and Invisible Isla.  With a family like that, how could you not have fun?

Mom and Dad go on a trip and leave the kids and cat with Groovy Gran.  She's odd enough in her own way but when she talks of the band she joined years ago, it's with nostalgia.  She doesn't know where the band members are but the kids decide to put up posters and notices and do interviews to get the word out about a reunion.

But someone is taking the posters down.  Someone is trying to sabotage the plans.  How can that be?

It gets sillier the further you go but it's a fun read.  All's well that ends well.  Come have some fun at the concert!
