Kat Kong


Kat Kong

Dav Pilkey

Harcourt Brace & Company, 1993

The story of King Kong retold – better! Instead of an ape, Kong is a CAT! And the people are mice. That’s the upside. The downside is that like the original, this Kong must die.

Main characters

·         Professor Vincent Varmint

·         Rosie Rodent

·         Captain Charles Limburger

·         Kat Kong

Secondary characters

·          The citizens of Mousopolis


  So funny! This book was laugh out loud funny – I mean it! I hated the thought of Kong dying but the book is worth it. There are puns and quips on every page, things young kids might not get but the older ones will and it makes the story all the more adorable (one of my favorites was the advertisement for Hamster of the Opera). Photographs of the authors’ cat and 3 mice are photoshopped into background art so none of the real animals were harmed during the making of the book – which is good because I would hate having to go ‘kong’ on Mr. Pilkey

Rating: 3 paws for adorable pictures, puns and Kong (his real name is Blueberry).
