Papillon Goes To The Vet
First sentence: Papillon is a very fluffy cat. He can float like a cloud in the sky. He loves to play with his friend. They never tire of playing kung fu air kicks and yarn softball. But catch is their favorite game.
Premise/plot: One day--when Papillon and his bird friend are playing catch with a catnip mousie--something goes wrong. He swallows the mouse and gets a horrid case of hiccups. His owner, Miss Tilly, takes him to the vet where he has to stay overnight. Will Papillon ever feel like himself again?
My thoughts: I definitely enjoyed this one!!! Papillon is adorable as always. The illustrations are fantastic. And the story is both whimsical and realistic. Not every cat floats and plays catch in the air, but all cats can cough up something when they're feeling sick. In the hands of the right reader, the sound effects would be super-fun.
