Horn Book Review

An omniscient narrator sings the praises of the titular cat in tight, lyrical rhyme (Is he frightened of thunderstorms? / Certainly not. / Is he scared of the dark? / Not a jittery jot). Ultimately, the only thing that intimidates Scarface Claw is, as readers may predict, his own reflection. Alternately playful and mock-ominous images of the cocky black feline complement this innocuous tale. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
