This is a cute fun story with beautiful illustrations. My great granddaughter loved it!

I found the characters a bit confusing as only sound verbs were used to identify the characters. It may also be so because I haven't read the previous books in the series where I presume the characters were introduced. For children, I suppose it will be a fun challenge to match the sound to the name to the illustration. For somebody reading right from the start of the series, I'm sure it will be fine as well. It is a great story on teamwork, although I'm not so sure I liked the writing style.

Thanks to NetGalley, the publisher, and the author for the digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. #NetGalley  #TheAdventuresofRembrandttheTuxedoCat

This cute picture book tells the story of some animal friends who work together to help A-Jay, a little bird whose nest fell out of a tree when his friend the horse, Tripp tries to say hello. The animals help A-Jay and at the end of the story A-Jay asks if one day when he is bigger he can play with the other animals. The story tells readers that we all make mistakes and moping around or getting upset wont solve them, but working together will. I like that instead of the word "said" all dialogue uses the sounds the animals would make, for example: Tripp neighed, Remy meows. I think that kids will enjoy this element of the story and it will also help them identify who is speaking, the cat definitely doesn't neigh after all!

The font is fairly accessible, it is usually black fonts on green or blue background. At times it feels like a little too much text on a page, but for the most part there are about 4-6 lines per page. The pictures are colouful and detailed and add to the comprehension of the text. This book is part of a series, which is also great because sometimes getting a struggling reader to read the sequel is much easier than starting them on a new book! I would recommend this book for parents and teachers of children in the age 4-8 range. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review this book!

Thank you, Clovercroft Publishing, for the advance reading copy.

The storybook gives a good strong message on community and how it affects each of us. I love the illustrations.

The presentation is good and is perfect for the target audience.

Go for it.

My five year old daughter enjoyed the pictures and the cats a lot. The story seemed to drag in a bit for her attention span, I had to keep making up aspects to keep her engaged. Having so many different voices was a little tricky for her to understand, even with me changing my voice. I think this is probably a good fit for reading age kids!

Thank you Netgalley and Clovercroft Publishing for the arc in exchange for an honest review.

A short and sweet story of how  Rembrandt, the tuxedo cat, gets together with his friends and helps little birdie, AJay, up his nest again.

The Adventures of Rembrandt the Tuxedo Cat was a fun read. Enjoyed the illustrations. Looking forward to reading more by this author. I would like to have seen the images flow, they clearly two pictures put together as opposed to one large picture.

The Adventures of Rembrandt the Tuxedo Cat is a great book, but I think the title is misleading. I think the adventure is more of a group effort, not that Rembrandt is the star of the story. i really liked how the animals worked together to help a Mama bird rebuild her nest. I think the story was a bit long at times.

This is a simple, colorfully illustrated story about some animal friends who encounter a calamity. A-Jay was accidentally tumbled out of his nest by one of the animals. They then work together to remedy the situation. This is a children’s story that encourages cooperation and truthfulness. Kids who like animal stories may enjoy hearing this one.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Clovercroft Publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.
