A charming Christmas story for the whole family about a cat who is up to no good!
It’s Christmas, and Jingles the kitten has knocked over the Christmas tree and unwrapped all of the presents! What a naughty kitty. When Jingles eats the entire Christmas turkey, it’s the final straw! Jingles is in big trouble now. While his family is busy cleaning up the mess, a guilty Jingles disappears. Realizing what matters most, the family sets out to look for their naughty kitten–it won’t be Christmas without him.
To continue in the holiday spirit, this book includes fun Christmas facts, Christmas jokes, the best recipe for cocoa, and even instructions for making your very own Christmas tree topper. The Cat Who Ate Christmas is the perfect gift this holiday season.
This is a fun story set on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and features a kitten named Jingles that just keeps causing trouble! Any cat owner will identify with this book and the illustrations are great and will keep the kids entertained.
Though set at Christmas ( the story shows the children’s excitement of Christmas), the story can be read anytime. This is not a Christmas story, but a ‘real life’ story.
If you are getting a cat anytime soon, be wary of Christmas time and what kind of disasters may occur!
WAIT! Once the story is over there is more! The boy Alex loves his facts, so there are some facts about cats and Christmas, there are some Christmas jokes, Dad’s hot cocoa recipe as he made the family cocoa, and an activity: How to make a Christmas angel like Mom did!
