Sometimes school can be scary and even embarrassing, but not today. Today is Birdie’s birthday, and everything will be perfect! Birdie's panda-riffic cupcakes are beautiful, and there’s one for everyone. She will be the star of the class. But then . . . disaster! A trip and fall on the way to school means no more cupcakes! Who can save the day? Who can make the class smile again? This is a job for Birdie’s alter ego . . . the Amazing Crafty Cat!
After a quick transformation, Birdie is ready. She’s not afraid of sticky paws or paper cuts. She’s not afraid of anything, even Anya, the class bully. It’s time to get crafting!
From Just Grace and Fashion Kitty author Charise Mericle Harper comes the first volume in a hilarious, charming, and sweet graphic novel trilogy for young readers about a little girl who can craft her way out of any situation. Each volume includes fun and simple instructions for do-it-yourself crafting activities. Get your paws ready for crafty time!
What drew me into this book was the adorable cover and the promise of crafts... and it delivered. Birdie is a little girl who has an secret, when she needs to she transforms into Crafty Cat! who can do all sorts of wonderful crafts.
In this issue, it is Birdie's birthday and her cupcakes are ruined on the way to school so know she has to find a way to make her birthday extra special without them. And we all know... what is a classroom birthday without cupcakes?!
After throwing an internal fit, and maybe even an external one, Birdie hunkers down as Craft Cat to find a solution to her problem.
The end of the book also includes a list of the crafts that Birdie did and how to make them at home. I think parents and kids will have a lot of fun with this graphic novel series.
