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.
Grumpy Cat just wants the chance to sleep, eat, and scratch things. Pokey and the dog insist she do something else with her day!
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.
A cute and fun compendium that made me smile more than once and is suitable for kids. I love Grumpy.
