Fuddles by Frans Vischer

Book Jacket Summary
Fuddles is a fat, lazy housecat who's never been in the Great Outdoors. One day, his humans leave the door open a crack and Fuddles seizes the chance to slip out, but things aren't quite as he expected. In a series of hilarious mishaps, including a run-in with the neighborhood dog, he realizes that life as he'd known it was actually pretty good. Told with deadpan humor and charming art, Fuddles is sure to steal readers' hearts.

My Thoughts
 Oh Fuddles, you are so cute and fluffy. I will take you home and spoil you rotten.
This book is so cute and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes animal stories. Fuddles is a spoiled kitty but when Mama says "NO!" to going out outside, he is determined to have adventures. He sneaks out but adventures are not quite he envisioned. Instead he gets lost, scared, and hungry. This book is quite humorous and has great illustrations. You can tell Vischer has watched cats for a while and has the lazy, chubby cat down!
I really like this book and I will be reading it over again!
