About Cat Problems: What could a pampered house cat possibly have to complain about? This latest collaboration from picture book superstars--and cat devotees--Lane Smith and Jory John brings with it a hilarious set of feline problems!
Just like most cats, this cat lives an extremely comfortable life. But he has his problems too!
The sun spot he's trying to bathe in won't stop moving. He keeps getting served dry food instead of wet. And don't even get him started on the vacuum--it's an absolute menace!--and the nosy neighbor squirrel that just can't seem to mind its own business. Will this cat ever find the silver lining?

Pokko has a history of getting REALLY enthusiastic about her hobbies, and her parents just keep encouraging her…until things get out of hand, when Pokko gets a drum. This book is hilarious, with wonderfully dry humor and wit. The gorgeous storybook illustrations take us through Pokko’s epic and unexpected adventures with her new drum, getting sillier and more surprising as it goes!
