Review: Sam Francisco and the Cat Disco

Midnight struck, the whole town slept.
Out of the window, something crept,
covered in glitter from head to toe,
singing softly, ‘me-ow me-oh.’.

Sam Francisco is off to the disco with his kitty-cat dance pals.

There’s bright lights and loud beats and everyone is stomping their feet as they show of their dance styles while Sam spins a tune. 

But Buzzkill Bill is out to ruin everything and shut this party down. He sends the dogs, he calls pest control, he calls all the emergency services! But nothing can stop Sam Francisco. Or can it?

This picture book is the cat’s meow! Fun and silly, good rhymes and good times. It’s uber entertaining and will inspire kids everywhere to get on the dance floor.

Vivid and colourful, the illustrations pop as much as the dancing. Gorgeous nighttime hues fill the background, and the best little details fill the pages to the edges. Glow sticks, platform shoes, banana pyjamas and more. Each page brings new delights to discover.

If you love a rhyming tale infused with fun, Sam Francisco and the Cat Disco is the cat you need to meet and the party you must attend.
