The cover to Miss Scout and the Fog Monster is absolutely beautiful in every way. Even if I didn't love cats, it would be most attractive and engaging.
The story is suitable for cat lovers of all ages, but especially fitting for reading aloud to younger children.
All of the accompanying photos are in strategic places, helping carry the plot events along swiftly.
Here are a few of my MOST favorite lines: "how many heard it just before they crashed on the rocks," "no home, no can opener." "You see a crazy lady with a stroller mister? She's out in dat fog and I think a monster got her." "Serves you right if it swallows you whole" "You guys are cute but boy are you annoying" (I'd love to have used that one a time or two myself!) "No claws, can't run fast and she can't see mid space" "I'm captain Scout Sprout and no monsters are gonna eat my mommy without a fight!" "You fairies never mentioned it had a giant eyeball!" These made me smile and on occasion laugh out loud. Just so catlike!
And last but not least, "One of them whispered in Scouts ear, you are now one of us, an honorary fairy."
The photo with the part above is exceptionally nice! But the very last one, with this part
"Oh great, we're invested with fairies." She fluffed her fur and sighed…
Is just super!!
