If the internet has taught us anything, it is that cats are both awesome creatures and very silly animals. Bob Shea’s Ballet Cat series purrfectly personifies this. In their first picture book outing, The Totally Secret Secret, Ballet Cat and Sparkles the Pony face a secret that might ruin their friendship. In the follow-up book, Dance! Dance! Underpants!, Ballet Cat and her friend Butter Bear prepare for a recital and face a very silly situation involving underwear. Young cat-loving readers will quickly fall for Ballet Cat and her charming friends, which is why we’re partnering with Disney-Hyperion to give you the chance to win a copy of The Totally Secret Secret, Dance! Dance! Underpants!, and a Ballet Cat plush toy. All you have to do is enter below and tell us what your favorite song to dance to is.
Want to know more about Ballet Cat and her friends? Here are the official synopses for both books:
The Totally Secret Secret
Ballet Cat and Sparkles the Pony are trying to decide what to play today. Nothing that Sparkles suggests—making crafts, playing checkers, and selling lemonade—goes well with the leaping, spinning, and twirling that Ballet Cat likes to do. When Sparkles’s leaps, spins, and twirls seem halfhearted, Ballet Cat asks him what’s wrong. Sparkles doesn’t want to say. He has a secret that Ballet Cat won’t want to hear. What Sparkles doesn’t know is that Ballet Cat has a secret of her own, a totally secret secret. Once their secrets are shared, will their friendship end, or be stronger than ever?
Dance! Dance! Underpants!
Ballet Cat is getting her friend Butter Bear ready for her big ballet debut. “Leap, Butter Bear, leap!” Ballet Cat prompts. But Butter Bear would prefer to just point her toe. When Ballet Cat keeps pushing, Butter Bear gets hungry, then thirsty, then sleepy… The bottom line is that Butter Bear would rather do almost anything to avoid making a big leap. Why? Because her bottom is covered in silly underpants! This second entry in the Ballet Cat series will have beginning readers rolling on the floor with laughter.
