The author came to my kids' school and my kindergartner chose this book to buy. It is a picture book. The story is silly and goofy. I didn't particularly like it, but my kindergartner rereads it almost everyday to herself and begs me to read it to her regularly--which makes me like it more and more.
When cold, hungry, and bored the Lazybones family repeatedly threatens their cat, who brings in firewood, fast food, games, and more to appease them. When their threats go too far, kitty exacts his revenge and the family is hauled off to jail. The colorful cartoon acrylics are playful and fun, and some kids will embrace the Lazybones’ comeuppance with giggles, but sensitive students and adults may find the family’s threats to make the cat into “kitty-kat doormats,” “grizzly-bear bait,” “cream-of ...more

This is a cute story about a cat and the family of Lazybones, who are all talk. The cat is cleary the smartest one in the picture, bringing in food, toys and even money for the family--only to have the family still give it grief. I love the turn at the end!

This is a book that works well for beginning readers, with a focus on predictions (easy, with the repetitions) and the simple actions of the story.
A funny story where the lazy, ungrateful people get their payback in the end. Nice to see how the cat ends up. (And though I feel sorry for the cat as he's taken for granted, I still can't help thinking about him being the original deed-doer....) Best part of this book for me was seeing cat playing Mouse Trap!
Fun illustrations. Excellent book to practice your hillbilly accent on. Although, not a cat fan, you can't help but root for the cat. My kids loved it

This is a picture book from Gary Hogg. It is funny also.
