Dr. Franklin's Staticy Cat and Other Unbelievable Tales

Reviewed by

Loaded with hilarious non sequiturs and elevating creativity as a trait to bolster in children, this collection of short stories is populated by weird animal characters and even weirder people. The incitement of laughter dominates, but precious life lessons—safe ways to take out your anger, cooperating with nature, and the importance of chewing your food before swallowing—add further utility to this whimsical collection. Dr. Franklin’s Staticy Cat is destined to resonate with kids who love science and clever storytelling techniques, and who need reassurance that it’s okay (preferable even!) to be a little strange. Ages seven to eleven.
