Crafty Cat and the Great Butterfly Battle Reviews
A little bit of glitter goes a long way. Great selection for makerspaces and discussions on friendship. This is a great book for all ages but would be enjoyed most by elementary age children that love crafts and projects.

Adorable as always. I really enjoy this series, especially as Birdie grows and changes in each book. She only had a few brief moments of almost brattiness towards the beginning (and Evan has the patience of a saint a lot of the time), but I can definitely see that she's growing and improving in regards to that childish flaw. Anya, on the other hand, lort that character. I know we need a foil to Birdie and that it's good for Birdie to see her own bad behaviour reflected at times through other cha ...more
This is a cute book that incorporates a crafting activity in the book. A little girl transforms into Crafty Cat when she is faced with some challenging tasks.
