Gosh! Best of 2022
Hey Dog Man fans: I've got your next purchase right here! Combining the madcap humour of Dav Pilkey's brilliant mega-hit series thanks to frequent Jon Klassen collaborator Mc Barnett, with the lovely art of Caldecott award winner Shawn Harris, TFCISAP (as we'll refer to it) follows our hero cat as he journeys through space to stop the rats that are eating the moon, accompanied by lunar royalty and a toenail clipping robot. Originally a "live cartoon" web series (basically a series of filmed images with narration by the pair), they've wrangled it into an honest to goodness graphic novel that's one of the funniest things we've read all year. Buy it for your kids, but read it yourself first.
As seen on The TODAY Show! New York Times bestselling Mac Barnett and Caldecott Honor award-winning illustrator Shawn Harris turn their massively popular The First Cat in Space Ate Pizza live cartoon into an action-packed and hysterical graphic novel series-perfect for fans of Dav Pilkey, Raina Telgemeier, and Jeff Kinney. A Kids' Indie Next List Pick and an Indie Bestseller!
Something terrible is happening in the skies! Rats are eating the MOON!
There's only ONE hero for the job, a bold and fearsome beast bioengineered in a secret lab to be the moon's savior and Earth's last hope! And that hero is . . . a cat. A cat who will be blasted into space!
Accompanied by the imperious Moon Queen and LOZ 4000, a toenail clipping robot, the First Cat in Space journeys across a fantastic lunar landscape in a quest to save the world. Will these unlikely heroes save the moon in time? Can a toenail-clipping robot find its purpose in the vast universe? And will the First Cat in Space ever eat some pizza?
