Staff Reviews


A board book like I’ve never seen before! This book encourages babies and toddlers to sharpen their (figurative) claws and explore a fun new texture on almost every page. Scratchie the cat is perfectly feline with its unimpressed expression—until the last page, when the reader gets to scratch the fuzzy cat itself and Scratchie grants us all a smile. Amazingly, Maria Putri is a recent art school graduate, and this genius idea was a project she began in school. This is a brand new talent to watch, and book to bring home and enjoy with all one’s senses!

Description


A Parents Best Kids Book of 2019!

Sharpen your claws—and scratching skills—with this adorable touch-and-feel book about a cat who loves to scratch everything…and wants you to join the fun!

Hi there, human!
I’m Scratchie the Cat
and I like to scratch stuff
to keep my claws super sharp.


Let’s scratch things together!

Join Scratchie the Cat to scratch touch-and-feel elements throughout this story. Rough door mats, grainy wooden tables, paper towels, cardboard boxes, and more give readers a claws-on experience as they innocently wreck Scratchie’s owner’s house (just like real cats)!

With touch-and-feel elements on every page, Scratchie even has the perfect ending, because there’s one more thing that loves to be scratched…Scratchie the Cat!
