Kim's Staff Pick (September 2014): Rupert has a secret night time passion that is discovered in a laugh out loud scene with fun illustrations. For the cat lover, the dancer or just a fun book lover, this fun picture book will be a pleasure to read over and over.

— From Kim B's Picks


Rupert has a big secret. When his owner, Mandy, is fast asleep, he likes to slip on her dancing shoes and dance the night away. Then one night Mandy catches Rupert in the act. She's not upset; she's thrilled And she's determined to give Rupert dancing lessons so he can hone his talent. Rupert is horrified. Lessons are for dogs. Cats like to do things their own way. Dismayed, he loses all interest in dancing and goes into hiding. But Mandy comes up with the perfect plan to get Rupert dancing again . . .
