We love Splat the Cat but I don't like some of the words used in the book like "loser"
Reviewed in the United States on March 17, 2014
We are big Splat the Cat fans and have many of the books. I tend to like those authored by Rob Scotton more than the "I Can Read" books authored by the publisher, but this one is not a favorite. There are words used in this book that I change, like calling someone a "loser" when other words could easily have been substituted (last one to the other side of the pool is a "loser" could easily have been "rotten egg" or something of that ilk). Not sure why an author of children's books or an editor of children's books would use words like that. Its unecessary for the story.
