Mr. Cat's Things by Genevieve Cote

Mr. King likes things, new things especially. The old things he tosses in the pond. While fishing, Mr. King catches what he thinks is a monster. It's really a clump of all the old things he tossed in the pond.  Friends rushing to his aid find the things and love them. Mr. King discovers a new passion--turning old things into new things.

What I thought: Cute story with a good message about taking care of the environment through reusing and re-purposing. The illustrations are lovely--bright appealing colors with soft lines. Pair Mr. King's Things with More by Springman for an interesting story time.
