Bugsy and KnucklesIt is a cold, yucky and rainy day so Mom has been reading to us. Our good kitty furiends, Bugsy and Knuckles, along with their human, HH (aka Lou Belcher), have written a book, Double Trouble A thru Z. The book is narrated by B and K’s cheeky friend, the mouse Checkers. If you follow Bugsy and Knuckles on the blog, Before You Write, you are not only familiar with Bugsy and Knuckles and Lou’s colorful art works (including her kitty portraits) but you also will have seen many of the illustrations for this book.

Each letter has Bugsy and Knuckles participating in three activities with Checkers offering his thoughts and opinions. The illustration below (from the letter S) shows them Skydiving. This is what narrator Checkers has to say about it: “Holly Moldy Mozzarella…!!!! What???? These Boys are nuts. SKYDIVING. Oh I see Knuckles might have learned a lesson from it. Look at Bugsy…always mellow.”

Bugsy and KnucklesHere’s Checkers. Isn’t he the cutest thing? Even we wouldn’t chase this little fellow. He is such a character and so clever with his descriptions of the boys’ activities and foolish behavior.

Calista Jo points out Lou’s bio on the back of the book.

Calista Jo and the rest of us, including our mom, recommend this as a gift for those who love kitties and/or humor. As you can see, C.J. thinks it is a purrfect book to read to your own kitties at bedtime.
