Skeleton Cat by Kristyn Crow, illustrated by Dan Krall. Crash! Zap! Skeleton Cat wakes up, gives his bones a shake, stretches, and goes Rattle, Yawn. “Rattle. Rattle, Clink. Tip top. Purrrrrrrrrr. Ka-plink, ka-plink, ka-plink.” Some bats zip by, and the ghosts are moaning, when Skeleton Cat says “Where am I?” He sees that he is all bones as he jumps around. Just then a gust of wind blows a flyer by that says there’s an audition for a drummer. Skeleton Cat has been dreaming all his nine lives about becoming a drummer. Well, the ghosts and the owls start laughing. A drummer in the living world? “You’re a spook! A ghoul! A phantom cat!” But Skeleton Cat is not deterred. He hurries on his way, all the while going “Rattle, clink. Tip top. Purrrrrrrrrr. Ka-plink, ka-plink, ka-plink.” Along the way, kids clap to the rhythm. Then he runs into trouble. A dog tries to bite him and a rat tries to chew him. Finally, he makes it to the audition! Find out how Skeleton Cat performs as he drums his way with rhythm and chills.
