There's a new cat in the house outside of the pantry. "I heard Whomp is a WILD cat!" Soccer hears from Tipsy the Spider who heard it from Chatter the ladybug who heard it from Dot the housefly "who saw it with her own seven eyes." When Soccer rushes home to tell his mom, she warns him not believe everything he hears. But when Soccer has to venture out to meet Tipsy for a game of checkers, he doesn't take any chances. In his suit of armor (a bike helmet, boxing gloves, winter boots, and a wooden sword), Soccer stumbles upon a ball of fur that is anything but "WILD." This adorably illustrated tale from the pantry will entertain children of all ages with the important lesson of being cautious of rumors.
