Reviews Crafty Cat and the Great Butterfly Battle

  • Jeimy
    Birdie is back and she, once again, has to face off against bratty Anya. This time it is over who gets the "lead" role in a classroom production. Birdie's love of crafts and knowledge helps her to take the high road.
  • Laura
    do crafts have rules? I don't think so.
  • Jenny Lynn
    Adorable as always. I really enjoy this series, especially as Birdie grows and changes in each book. She only had a few brief moments of almost brattiness towards the beginning (and Evan has the patience of a saint a lot of the time), but I can definitely see that she's growing and improving in regards to that childish flaw. Anya, on the other hand, lort that character. I know we need a foil to Birdie and that it's good for Birdie to see her own ...

    Birdie and several other classmates are dying to play the part of the butterfly in their class play. Even though Birdie has fashioned a little doll with wings to show Miss Domino, her teacher, her potential, her rival, Anya arrives at school with life-size wings and an attitude to match. Eventually, everyone except the two girls agrees to play the role of another insect, and Birdie reluctantly agrees to play the caterpillar because she is concern...

    Birdie and Anya both want to wear the super-sparkly wings in the school play. I mean, of course they do, why not? The problem is that Anya bullies and pushes and harasses everyone around her until she gets her own way. She is annoying and we all know people who seem to get their own way. As a character and a child, I appreciate that Anya is up front about it. I know far too many adults who are passive aggressive and sneaky about getting what they...

    I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from the publisher and am voluntarily reviewing it. Birdie is battling her nemesis Anya for the lead in the school play they both want to be a butterfly after everyone picks different insects to be in the school play. Birdie realizes she is becoming Anya and takes the caterpillar role. What a great story about compromise and learning to deal with difficult people all for the greater good.
  • Trudie
    I have read both previous Craft Cat books and myself and the children have always enjoyed them. There is always a story which children can relate to, something that teaches them. Here we had several children who wanted to be the same insect as Birdy, a butterfly! There are choices to be made, and some wings to save, and who else can rise to the challenge? Birdy of course! A lovely story with some fantastic crafts that my niece and nephew will enj...

    *Advanced reading copy courtesy of NetGalley* Crafty Cat is back. This time it’s the classroom play and everyone wants to play the butterfly. Once again Anya and Birdie are at odds and the last two competing to be the butterfly in the play. Crafty Cat, Birdie’s alter ego, helps her realize why being the caterpillar is just as important as the butterfly. Crafty Cat also saves the day when mishaps with the caterpillar happen on the day of the p...
  • Sarah
    Another winner of a Crafty Cat book. I can't tell you how much I love to see what an unrepentant nasty character Anya is. Here we are on book 3 and she hasn't reformed! Poor Birdie and the others just have to work around her and learn to ignore her. It's somehow very pleasing and, of course, funny.I loved the plot of this one, too-of course everyone wants to be a beautiful butterfly in the play! A very satisfying entry in this series. Thank you, ...
  • Amber Webb
    Crafty Cat and the Butterfly Battle was a fun early read. My young daughter loved the illustrations and quick, simple text that accompanied it. The storyline was something that many children will be able to connect with and it moved quickly enough to hold the attention of even the youngest readers. I am looking forward to sharing Crafty Cat with my class and seeing what inspiration follows.
  • McKenzie
    A little bit of glitter goes a long way. Great selection for makerspaces and discussions on friendship. This is a great book for all ages but would be enjoyed most by elementary age children that love crafts and projects.
  • Cathy
    Rays of pride for another great Crafty Cat book (conga with Cloudy was a highlight). Birdy shows such spirit and learns to share the spotlight while still letting her talents shine. Complete with butterfly/caterpillar related crafts and directions the end of the book. Love.
  • Andrienne
    This is a cute book that incorporates a crafting activity in the book. A little girl transforms into Crafty Cat when she is faced with some challenging tasks.Access to review copy provided by the publisher.
  • Molly
    Crafty Cat learns a valuable lesson about cooperation - and how to help out a classmate with her crafting skills. Adorable illustrations, a sweet story, and a couple of easy-to-follow crafts in the back.
  • Jennifer Van Oosbree
    Super cute graphic novel about a girl/cat Birdie that loves to craft. Problems arise that can only be solved with some expert crafting from Birdie. Readers can make the crafts shown in the book with how-to instructions at the end! Very fun!
  • Joy
    Cute story but the crafts at the back of the book you have to scan and print. They should make the crafts from things you can find around the house and recycle.
  • Lisa
    This was super cute and can I just say that there was a poop ball?
  • Hiroko Rodriguez
    It was awesome book especially when she said she felt like she was a sausage
  • Memory Toast
    Really liked this and would even have given it 5 stars, but for the *roll eyes* bathroom humor.
  • Becky B
    Crafty Cat (aka Birdie) is super excited for the class play about insects. She is going to be the star, the butterfly. But when she shows up at school, she discovers that seven of her classmates also think they’re going to be the butterfly. Their teacher says each person needs to pick a different insect. Most of the kids decide on another insect and give up their butterfly dreams, but not Birdie and not Anya. Their teacher says they have to wor...

    Calling all makers and crafters! This book was so much fun! There's drama, not everyone can be the butterfly in the show, but thanks to some crafting and open-mindedness, it all works out. Crafting even saves the day in the end. I received a free ecopy from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
  • Rosemary
    The third Crafty Cat comic book has Birdie - whose alter ego is crafty superheroine Crafty Cat - ready to take the lead role in her school play about bugs. The problem is, everyone wants the role: it's a butterfly! Anya is back, and she wants to be the butterfly, too - and Anya always seems to get her way. Looks like a job for Crafty Cat!I really enjoy the Crafty Cat series, and so do my library kids. Birdie is a likable character who always mana...

    The second book in this series was not the best, but this installment brought it back for me. In this issue, Birdie wants to be the butterfly in her school play but another girl in her class wants it too, she must find a way to accept the possibility of not being the part she wants. I liked Birdie/ Crafty Cat in this issue again, she wanted something, couldn't have it, and handled it very well and I think that is a great lesson for younger reader...
