Reviews

"Cute and hilarious" -- Booklist


"Lots of white space, repeated vocabulary, and humorous spot and full-page illustrations create a welcoming reading environment for youngsters. The fact that Frank's humans are a mixed-race gay couple only boosts this book's value." -- Booklist


"Brockenbrough's appealing early chapter book features simple, declarative sentences with lots of repetition and cat-centered humor. Lau's digitally manipulated, painted illustrations showing a slobbery corgi, an expressive cat, and two brown-skinned humans convey both Frank's moods and the gentle humor." --Kirkus Reviews


"A series opener that will delight cat AND dog fans." --Kirkus Reviews


"Brockenbrough's wry prose perfectly captures Frank's feline perspective, and in several of Lau's paintings, you'll swear you can almost hear Frank purring. But the best part is the way Brockenbrough engineers a moving reconciliation between the two former enemies, neatly sidestepping schlock and sentiment and going straight for understated emotional truth. It's positively the cat's pajamas." -- BookPage
