Picture Book Review: Dustrats

Sir Muffin Muffinsson is a valiant, watchful cat charged with the care and keeping of baby Emma while she sleeps. It’s a busy job, and this week Sir Muffin forgot to do the tidying up! Seven days worth of dust springs to life in the form of "Dustrats," mischievous little imps who run amok through the house. While Sir Muffin chases the critters from room to room with his trusty vacuum, Emma’s vivid dreams begin to morph the world around him: An ocean in the bathroom, a magic kingdom in the attic, things are getting out of control! Will Sir Muffin make it back to the nursery before Emma’s dreams become a little too wild? An enchanting story full of imagination and adventure, 
Dustrats makes for a bedtime favorite.

5 Stars
What an adorable story and one that will be asked for time and time again. The illustrations are so detailed that a child will want to take this one to bed to "read" by themselves. Sir Muffin Muffinsson watches over the sleeping child and takes care of bad dreams, that is until he finds he must deal with seven little dustrats who are messing up the house. Of course, while the cat's away the dreams will play. Great book!
