A few starting notes:

I received a free digital review copy of this book via NetGalley. NetGalley provides review copies from publishers in exchange for fair and honest reviews.
It's Grumpy Cat! When I had the opportunity to review this, I just had to. I love kitties, and I love Grumpy Cat with her cute little face.
This is a comic compilation of The Misadventures of Grumpy Cat and Pokey (#1-3) which have several stories in each issue.


Premise:

Grumpy Cat just wants the chance to sleep, eat, and scratch things. Pokey and the dog insist she do something else with her day!


Best bits:

The artwork here is really cute - and the stories are the correct blend of cute, sarcastic, and funny.
The characterisation reminds me a lot of Garfield - which is by no means a bad thing, far from it.
I also love that the dog just wanders around saying, 'Good Dog!'


Not so great bits:

Some of the stories were just a little forced - no more so than many other kid-friendly comics, but I noticed it in one or two.
It probably goes without saying, but if you don't like Grumpy Cat, this isn't the book for you.


Verdict:

A cute and fun compendium that made me smile more than once and is suitable for kids. I love Grumpy.
