    Entertaining story that shows Valentine's Day doesn't have to just be about the mushy stuff. I love Cat's humor and facial expressions!

    I really loved Here Comes Valentine Cat. The voice is just pitch-perfect. Cat is so charming and full of personality; he's prickly yet I just wanna give him a big hug! The message is so good, too, keep an open mind when it comes to new people (ahem, dogs) and friendships. I think it illustrates being generous in our thoughts; that we shouldn't prejudge, and that we should look at something from the other's perspective.

    The mischievous and sarcastic cat of Deborah Underwood’s “Cat” series is back with his signboard responses to the narrator’s queries. Underwood’s moral will resonate with all from preschooler to adult.

    First sentence: Hey, Cat! Any Valentine's Day plans? This is a No-Valentines Zone? Why don't you like Valentine's Day, Cat? Valentine's Day doesn't have to be all mushy. Why don't you make a valentine for a friend?Premise/plot: Here Comes Valentine Cat is one in a series of books starring Cat. In this one, Cat meets a new neighbor--a Dog. Will Dog prove to be a friend or foe? What kind of valentine should Cat make for Dog? A nice one? A mean one?My thoughts: I love, love, love this series by Deborah Underwood. This one didn't disappoint. I'm so glad I encouraged my library to order it. (They already had the other books in the series.) I would definitely recommend the series to anyone and everyone who loves cats. I would also say that the book is a great example of narrative style. I love the conversational tone of the books.Text: 5 out of 5Illustrations: 5 out of 5Total: 10 out of 10

    Another humorous installment in this charming series about a very opinionated cat.

    Underwood and Rueda have done it again! Here Comes Valentine Cat, is another memorable story staring our favorite cat. With adorable illustrations, and a story that has plenty of humor and heart, Cat continues to prove why fans of all ages love his stories. Not a fan of Valentine's Day, Cat learns there is more to the day than being mushy. Before Cat can get back at the pesky dog that lives next door for continually throwing his bones and ball over the fence at him, he just might realize that friends can be found in unexpected places.

    This is a sweet book about an expressive cat who learns not to prejudge motives of the dog next door. The illustrator did an excellent job of following conversation between the cat and a unseen character. Whenever it was the cat's turn to reply he either used a quickly written sign, or his answer was interpreted by body language, actions, and facial suggestions. I love this cat! A very entertaining book.

    (view spoiler)[Cat's new neighbor Dog keeps throwing things over the fence at him. It almost looks like Cat wants to start a war with Dog, until he realizes Dog is just trying to make friends. The minimalist illustrations, with Cat's many intriguing facial expressions are a perfect fit to this story. (hide spoiler)]

    What a delight! Cat has been having trouble with his neighbor and Valentine's Day isn't making cat feel any better. But through a conversation with us (the readers) cat manages to see things in a new way and strike up a friendship into the bargain. Fun, silly, clever!

    Cat isn't into Valentine's Day and the thought of welcoming the new neighbor dog is even more off-putting, but when Cat decodes Dog's annoying behaviors a happy ending and a Happy Valentine's Day go hand in hand.Ink and color pencil artwork. Good read aloud for PreK-2.

    I love this series! Always fun stories, told in an engaging way that leaves the reader laughing. Plus Cat always learns a good lesson by the end.

    Cat is up to his usual antics, and like always, it's hilarious.

    I loved the voice, humor, and message about friendship in this book. The narrative conversational voice will draw kids in to predict, infer, and giggle along to cat's antics.

    This is another fun book with Cat - a perfect read for Valentine's Day.Cat doesn't really want to give anyone a Valentine's Day card, but the narrator tries to convince her she give one to her new neighbor dog.Although there are a lot of pages, there isn't much text, so it's a relatively fast read.The illustrations are great and appropriate for younger children (toddlers - elementary school).I liked that it wasn't overly mushy and that it focused on kindness instead of on romantic love.Kids enjoyed it and voted to give it 5 stars.

    Awww! Cat makes a friend!!This series is such a good one for adorableness and a silly lead character and yet teaches good lessons. Cat has learned to help Santa and the Easter Bunny and now to be friends with the (gasp!) DOG next door!As always a great one-on-one read. Be sure to give it a try!

    We read this book for the kindness-Valentine’s theme. It was an excellent story. Well done. This book was an excellent example for teaching children a powerful lesson of kindness without it being generic or cheesy.

    Cat, who looks grumpy and crabby, apparently does not like Valentine's Day.When our narrator asks Cat if there's anyone he might send a Valentine to, a dog appears just out of sight and seems to be a menace. However, appearances can be deceiving.

    I wonder how many children reading this predict Dog's true intentions. Obvious to me, and probably to most adults, but probably a delightful surprise to most of the members of the target audience. My favorite of the Cat series. Thank you, Children's Books group, for choosing this.

    This series is wonderful! Cat doesn't like Valentine's Day because it's too mushy. And he CERTAINLY doesn't like the dog next door!
