Mr. Pants: It's Go Time!: 02/15/18

Mr. Pants: It's Go Time! by Scott McCormick

Mr. Pants: It's Go Time! by Scott McCormick is the start of Mr. Pants series. Mr. Pants is a cat with feline siblings and a human mother. Mr. Pants and one of his sisters go to elementary school. The youngest sister is too young for school but wants to be treated like a big kid.

It's back to school time and Mr. Pants has been promising all summer that he'll clean his room. When he doesn't but his youngest sister does, he's forced to attend a princess sparkle party — where kids get to make their own princess doll.

The entire book is about Mr. Pant's last day of summer not going as planned and him making the best of the situation. A lot of times these stories spent inordinate amounts of time with the main character being an absolute jerk when things don't go their way. Instead, it's about a big brother rolling with the day and managing to have fun even if it's not the sort of day he planned.

The artwork and premise are both goofy but it strikes a chord with its intended audience — elementary school aged readers. My daughter, who is currently nuts about the Mr. Pants books, has been drawing her own cats in elementary school students.

Three stars
