Flat cat  Cover Image Book Book

Flat cat / written by Tara Lazar ; illustrated by Pete Oswald.

Lazar, Tara, (author.). Oswald, Pete, (illustrator.).


Flat Cat was born flat. He wasn't squashed by an out-of-control ice cream truck or smushed in a waffle iron. This slick, sly cat could stray and roam anywhere he pleased, keen and unseen. And wouldn't you know it, Flat Cat liked it just like that. That is until one day, when Flat Cat accidentally feel splish-splash, right in the wash. And when he emerged from the dryer, Flat Cat wasn't flat at all. He was adorably puffy and downright fluffy! And Flat Cat wasn't sure how he felt about that. -- Provided by publisher.
