Publisher's Weekly Review

This playful collection of graphic-format short stories follows the adventures of two dissimilar cats-grumpy and cynical Catwad and happy-go-lucky Blurmp-who also happen to be best friends. From mistaking mosquitos for fairy unicorns to naming a virus ("I think I'll call her 'Sniffleen''"), Blurmp's optimistic take on everything can be too much for Catwad. But whenever the grumpy Gus needs a reminder that the world is not as bad as he thinks, Blurmp is there to put a smile on his face-if only for a second. Throughout, humorous prose and bright illustrations by Benton (the Dear, Dumb Diary series) add to the amusement for each tale. While the Garfield-and-Odie-style humor may not be everyone's cup of tea, younger readers in particular are sure to enjoy Catwad and Blurmp's friendship. Ages 8-12. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
