Splat is so excited when Mrs. Wimpydimple announces that the class will be going to the zoo. While everyone calls out favorite animals — elephant! giraffe! monkey! — Splat only wants to see the penguins. After all, penguins are perfect; they are black and white, just like Splat! All day long, Splat just can't wait. But when the smallest animal makes the biggest splash and shuts down the penguin exhibit, Splat goes home disappointed and alone...or does he? Series Information Just like anyone, this fuzzy kitty can have an occasional case of the jitters. Whether he's starting school, rehearsing for a play, or trick-or-treating, Splat's nerves sometimes get the better of him. So what does he do? He relies on the support of his trusty companion, Seymour. Seymour may be small (he's a mouse, after all), but he's the biggest friend Splat could ask for. Together this adorable duo reminds readers, and each other, that kindness, encouragement, and laughter go a long way. Available in both picture book and beginning reader formats, this series captivates kids with pop-off-the-page illustrations, lively characters, and relatable humor.
