Fans of the popular Dog Man and Captain Underpants series, get ready to welcome Cat Kid Comic Club to the club – a brand new series from the acclaimed children’s book author Dav Pilkey. The first book in the creator’s new graphic novel series features fan favourite Li’l Petey – aka Cat Kid from the Dog Man series. Young readers will be equal parts inspired and delighted with the focus on Li’l Petey as he hilariously endeavours to educate a collective of 21 baby frogs on the art of comic-making. Coupled with the help of his friends Flippy the Fish and Molly the colourful cast of characters is brought to life by a variety of illustrative techniques as they learn to make their own comics. With plenty of laughs throughout the process, Cat Kid Comic Club carries a similar adventurous momentum to the American cartoonist’s previous best-selling titles.
The heart of this brand new adventure is led by the talented baby frogs who dream up a slew of stories which feature within the book as mini-comics to enjoy. As all their stories develop and evolve so does everyone’s understanding of the process. The lively collective rush to finish in time for The Show and Tell Party and the rewards of perseverance and practice shine. Pikey’s knack for weaving life’s valuable lessons with humour and creativity is a winning formula. Cat Kid Comic Club packs in all the adventure, laughs and warmth readers keep returning for in Pilkey’s novels – and the first book in the new series is destined to hit the top of Christmas wishlists this Summer.
