    One thought on “The Cats of Mrs. Calamari”

    1. So Mrs. Calamari feels that her cats are her children. Me too! People ask me A LOT if I have children and when I say 'no' they look at me with pitiful eyes. However, I have fur-kids. And they are the best, even when they bring home dead mice or live birds and barf up hair balls.Some day I will probably have fur-less children. I'm sure that I will love them, even though they will ask me for lots of money and pee on me and make my boobs saggy. I'll probably get stretch marks too. My sister did. Th [...]

    2. Mrs. Calamari moves into a new apartment on Monday with her seven cats. The landlord, Mr. Gangplank, told her no cats were allowed and must be gone by Sunday “or something will happen.” Mrs. Calamari begins disguising her cats, which are multiplying by the day. On Wednesday her cousins visit, on Thursday her nieces and nephews, and on Friday Mrs. Calamari’s grandchildren arrive. Mrs. Calamari’s aunts and uncles arrive on Saturday and Mr. Gangplank takes everyone to the beach. He wants to [...]

    3. The Cats of Mrs. Calamari by John Stadler is a charming picture book for children between three and eight, although older children might enjoy reading it to younger friends or siblings. Mrs. Calamari has just moved into a new apartment and gotten settled in with what appears to be hundreds of cats. Before she knows it her new landlord, Everett Gangplank, and his huge dog stop in to announce that he is making the building cat free. Luckily, Mr. Gangplank’s glasses are missing, so Mrs. Calamari [...]

    4. I liked it, but it was too short. The story is fun, but I’m not sure if little children will like this one. It isn't a story that will grab someone’s attention and hold it. The illustrations are simple, natural colours, nothing too spectacular. I think it would be more fun if it was hard to find out if the family of Mrs. Calamari really where cats. All in all, an okay children story.

    5. This is a good book for read aloud. I would suggest this book for K-5 grade. The language is simply, there is no hard pronounced words or long sentence that does not make sense. This story is funny, because of the all different roles for cats, which is not possible in real life.

    6. This book was weird, kooky, and bizarre -- so, you know, pretty much perfect for a second-grader to read on his own.
