Ms. Melba, the kitty school teacher, needs to go to the doctor. Guess who needs to step in to take her place?It’s safe to say the kitties have never seen a teacher like Cat. And Cat learns a thing or two as well in this, the fifth book of the heartwarming Cat series.

"When Ms. Melba has to go to the doctor, the star of Here Comes the Easter Cat and its sequels reluctantly agrees to be a substitute teacher at Kitty School. Underwood and Rueda maintain the droll narration and spare visual humor of the previous books as Cat guides eager kittens through music (electric guitars are involved), building time (a “fountain that spouts fish” is involved), and art (major cleanup is involved). There’s plenty to giggle over on almost every page, but the funniest moment might belong to Ms. Melba, who returns to the classroom with a ‘cone of shame’ around her neck.”
