The Not-So-Spooky Black Cat by Oliver Rogue is a bright and beautiful story about a little black cat, Booga, who faces some unfairness because of the superstitions of black cats being bad luck. Booga was obsessed with boxes big and small and loved playing, kneading, stretching, belly rubs, and receiving tons of attention. No one wanted to adopt him, so he watched the other white, ginger, and grey kittens get adopted first. At last, when he was adopted, his owners realized that he was just like any cat who sometimes claws but also cuddles. Booga's story proves that he is just like any other cat and that the superstitions about him being bad luck are untrue. He deserves all the love he gets from his family.

The Not-So-Spooky Black Cat by Oliver Rogue is a brilliant storybook that boldly breaks down the stereotypes associated with black cats through the endearing qualities of Booga, the cutest little black cat. The vibrant, fun, and stunning illustrations complement the story's rhythmic prose with vivid descriptions of Booga's favorite activities. There is a lot to learn from this story; it depends on the reader, and that is what I enjoy most about this book. There are so many positive messages to take from it. Still, one that stands out for me is breaking down popular worldly misconceptions, knowing that every living being is worthy of love and affection. This story especially resonated with me because I adopted a black cat. The Not-So-Spooky Black Cat is an imaginative and refreshing story that I loved reading.
