Madcap feline antics told ingeniously in comic-strip form

Three hilarious stories are told in graphic style in this book destined for multiple readings. The first episode finds the charismatic Boots without a place to nap on his usual wall. A bit of ingenuity and some fish biscuits are all he needs to get some room, though his scheme is certain to backfire. The second chapter has Boots enlisting the duck Madam Quark for swimming and flying lessons, with dubious results. And the pièce de résistance comes last in probably the most hilarious game of charades ever played by cats.

The entire book gleams with wit and sublime absurdity and is sure to be a family favorite.

Seldom is the text, all of which is in dozens of dialogue balloons, more than incidental in this set of feline hijinks from Kitamura (Me and My Cat?, 2000), and several episodes are entirely wordless.

Kitamura (Angry Arthur) wittily depicts cats as easygoing layabouts in these cinematic comics.
