Birdie is a big fan of creating and crafting. When she’s gluing or cutting, she takes on the guise of Crafty Cat and knows she can take on anything with her supplies. On Birdie’s birthday, she knows her cupcakes are going to make her the star of her class. Unfortunately, on the way to school her cupcakes are ruined, as are her clothes. She attempts to make the better of it, but things slowly get worse. Thankfully she turns to her alter ego to save the day.
The Amazing Crafty Cat is both a book and a craft guide. Each craft Birdie does has instructions in the back of the book. Not only does the book encourage kids to work with their hand, it also deals with the challenges of school bullies and how to deal with things when they don’t go according to plan.
The Amazing Crafty Cat by Charise Mericle Harper is an adorable addition to your bookshelf. It is available from First Second Books April 11, 2017.
