My Review: 

Alycat and the Tournament Tuesday is me and my family’s first introduction to Alysson Foti Bourque’s Alycat series. I enjoyed reading this book with my kids. We loved the cute and delightful little story. Alycat, her brother Bugsy, and her friends learn some valuable lessons in this book. I thought it was a great influence for my children to learn something important about life. A lot of which a lot of us big kids could learn from, as well. Bugsy has to learn that it is not the material things that is important, it is determination, practice and hard work is what matters most. There are couple of other things that we could learn throughout the book, as well. 

Not only is Alycat and Tournament Tuesday a great little tale, I loved the illustrations. Chiara Civati’s talent shines through bringing this story to life. The pictures are bright and vibrant that perfectly goes with the scenes. I think they visually keep the chidren’s attention. Which is hard to do sometimes with the little ones. 

I am giving Alycat and the Tournament Tuesday a very well deserved five plus stars. I would give it one hundred if we could. My kids and I look forward to reading the other books from the Alycat series in the near future. We are proudly donating our copy of this one to their school library so their friends can enjoy it, as well.  I am sure they will love it as much as we do. 

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
