Praise For…


“Pyle’s signature pink-and-blue comic panels expand to full-page spreads in this clever ode to cats...school-aged children will find it simultaneously absurd and hilarious. A great choice for young readers beginning to explore graphic novels, this is an essential purchase, ready to tickle children and adults alike.”
— School Library Journal (starred review)

"The hyperliteral phrases are sure to provoke readers’ laughter…kids might just hone observational skills too [and] surprise their adults with new vocabulary; families who read it together may be inspired to make up their own. Don’t be a stranger to this one."
Kirkus Reviews

“Pyle’s tidy comics style and limited color palette centers the deadpan vocabulary as much as the art, and humor directed at categorizing concepts and building observational skills is an added bonus for young readers. Back matter includes a visual vocabulary aid.”
Publishers Weekly

“Done in the style of his humorous cartoons on social media, Mr. Pyle conjures an alien parent and child with classic sci-fi bald heads and huge eyes. The speech of these beings has a kind of courtly impartiality that makes it extremely funny.”
Wall Street Journal
