Description-

  • Get your paws ready for crafty time! From beloved author Charise Mericle Harper comes Crafty Cat and the Great Butterfly Battle, a new adventure in the Crafty Cat graphic novel series.

    Everyone in Miss Domino's class is excited about the school play and its lead role, the super-sparkly butterfly. Birdie knows she'd be perfect for the part—unfortunately, she's not the only one who feels that way. Eight other classmates also want the starring role. And even worse, one of them is Anya! And doesn't Anya always seem to get her way?

    Who can save the day? Crafty Cat! As her alter-ego, Birdie can craft her way out of any disaster. With tape, tissue paper, and her can-do spirit, Birdie will find a way to shine on stage.

    Join in the fun: Instructions for five easy do-it-yourself projects are included.

    The third in the Crafty Cat series finds elementary schooler Birdie competing for a choice role in the class play.When the story begins, readers find Birdie's alter ego, Crafty Cat, putting the finishing touches on a project: a small model of her human form with butterfly wings. Even after transforming back into Birdie, she's sure her creativity will convince her teacher she's right for the highly coveted role of the butterfly in her class play. Unfortunately, it's not so easy: Class bully Anya has come prepared with store-bought, full-sized wings, as have the majority of their classmates. When their teacher asks the classmates to consider other roles, only Anya and Birdie refuse to budge, forcing their teacher to assign parts: Anya as the butterfly and Birdie as the caterpillar. When Anya has a costume snafu, however, Birdie uses her crafting skills to save the day and learn a lesson: "crafting beats clapping." Readers new to the series may wonder how Birdie's secret identity works: Does she actually turn into a cat, or is it just her imagination? Why is her crafting alter ego a cat? The low-stakes, lesson-heavy plot feels more like an episode of a preschool TV show than a typical graphic novel, especially with a narrator (delineated with a text box with a pastel mint background) who directly addresses the protagonist: "What a secret, Crafty Cat. Thank you for sharing. Now it's time for your transformation." Characters are all paper-white.Perhaps best for young crafting enthusiasts searching for a quiet, gentle read--but even they may be underwhelmed. (Graphic fiction. 7-10)
