Parker is so nosy and annoying but his family, an older couple, love him so much that it just oozes from the pages through the great illustrations. Cats do the stuff in this book, they walk all over your keyboard, they wake you up in the morning and I know my classes are going to laugh hysterically at the cat looking over the shower curtain.
The text is simple and easy to read, even for younger students, but can easily become a very entertaining read aloud as well. The mixed media illustrations and playful text design make this a very appealing book for anyone who picks it up.
