2 Cartoon Books

Cat Getting Out of a Bag
And Other Observations

A Cat Book by
Jeffrey Brown
Chronicle Books, 2007

In this nearly wordless book, the author/illustrator relates everything cat lovers love (and hate) about their felines in a cartoon format. Misty is the cat protagonist and through her the reader learns where cats come from (the cemetery); that cats love you one minute and are pouncing on your ankles the next; cats know when you are upset and (may) try to comfort you; and that cats are, in general, mysterious and fabulous creatures that graciously allow humans to take care of them.

Rating: 3 ½ paws out of 5 because I like the book for it’s true portrayal of cat activities but I didn’t laugh as much as I wanted to.

My Pet Human Takes Center Stage

Yasmine Surovec
Roaring Brook Press, 2017

From the back of the book: “The adorable My Pet Human chapter book series continues at the pet fair, where a little kitten threatens to upstage Oliver!”

Oliver, a rotund black tuxie, sneaks into his human’s backpack and goes to school with her. While at school he finds out about a pet fair the school is having to help the local animal shelter. Freckles (Oliver’s human) decides to help out by not only fostering a kitten but teaching her and Oliver some tricks to perform. The foster kitten out shines him in almost every way and he is jealous of the attention she is receiving. So, at first Oliver is reluctant to learn the tricks but then when he realizes treats are involved he tries his very best to learn them. The day of the pet fair comes around and Oliver is ready to perform his tricks to perfection…or is he???

Rating: 3 ½ paws out of 5 – I liked Oliver and his story, it’s perfect for early reading kittens. My only complaints are that the illustrations aren’t in color (I know, I’m spoiled!) and the narrative print in the story is a bit small for early readers but the dialog bubbles are a nice large size. But all in all, a very cute book!
