Skeeter: A Cat Tale by Anne L. Watson

When a stray kitten romps into Lynne's life, she has no idea what she's getting into. As Lynne describes in letters to her friend Angie, Skeeter is all cat-high-spirited, contrary, and inventive. He's so goofy that he reminds Lynne of her own nuttiest escapades; so irrepressible that even Lynne's neighbor, Mark, gets wound around his paw. And when Angie visits to see Skeeter for herself . . . . Well, no one who meets Skeeter will ever be quite the same again.

My Thoughts:
I read this book as part of the 2012 ebook challenge. Skeeter: A Cat Tale is a cute tale about a troublesome cat written in letter format. I liked this book, but it could have been so much more. The first few pages left me confused as to who Angie and Lynne were and why they were writing, but that became apparent after a few more page. There is a whole chapter devoted to Melissa, but we never find out much about her. The characters other than Skeeter are under developed. I did like how Lynne put little stories in her letters that related to something Skeeter was doing at the time. Skeeter's antics also made me laugh. I could definitely relate to them, having had a few cats that misbehaved. The book was cute and entertaining, but left me a little disappointed. It had so much more potential.

I give Skeeter: A Cat Tale: 2.5/5
