Reviews

"Who can possibly resist a team of super cats? Or a wonderful kid who gets swept up in the feline drama? I loved Katie!" --Lucy Knisley, New York Times bestselling author of Stepping Stones

"A winner." --Nick Bruel, New York Times bestselling author of the Bad Kitty series

"Super fun and utterly delightful." --Gene Luen Yang, New York Times bestselling author of American Born Chinese

Young readers will revel in the heroic antics, and older ones, like me, will be tickled by the Easter eggs strewn throughout. The sweet and funny nature of this book is expertly reflected in Yue's energetic art and seemingly effortless line work. --New York Times

β˜…"Neko Atsume meets The Tick in this laugh-out-loud funny, well-paced series starter...Yue's expressive cartoons complement this enchanting story, the first in a series with a promising cast of characters--feline and otherwise." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A little evil and a whole lotta fun." --Kirkus Reviews

"A winsome mix of adventure, humor, and realistic middle grade problems, ideal for readers seeking the whimsy of Dav Pilkey's "Dog Man" tempered with thereassuring tone of Raina Telgemeier's work." --School Library Journal

"A pro-girl comic to encourage adventure, entrepreneurship, and excellent, pun-filled pet names." --BCCB

"Venable's twisty plot swoops gleefully around Manhattan, touching on everything from animal activism to evolving relationships to a secret rescue mission, and combining to tell the story of one of the least boring summers ever." --BookPage

"Realism and absurdity snuggle harmoniously, with such delightful dichotomies as grumpy moggy Moritz knocking over glasses as calico Jolie plays MMORPGs while donning enormous headphones." --The Bulletin
