Mr. Katapat's Incredible Adventures

I picked up a copy of Mr. Katapat's Incredible Adventures at the library as part of my Reading My Library challenge. I was absolutely delighted to discover this particular title, written and illustrated by Barroux. I had no high expectations for it when I looked at the cover art but then I opened the book and WOW! Had to share it with the masses.

It opens in the following manner:

This is our hero,
Mr. Katapat.
He may look like an ordinary man,
but really he is a great adventurer.
Every day, Mr. Katapat heads to the library.
That's right, the library.
It's where all the excitement begins.

This is a book lover's dream picture book. Bonus points if you love your local library! Mr. Kataput proceeds to have a lot of really cool and fun adventure (all with very simple sentence structures that make this easy to comprehend from the age of 3 on up). The book concludes with him bumping into the future Mrs. Katapat.

LOVED this book. I thought it was clever and fun. But that is probably because I like books. I'm also really enjoying finding books just like this one at our local library.

To see where I'm at in the challenge, visit Reading My Library.
