STEWIE GRIFFIN MEETS GRUMPY CAT IN A BOOK FOR CAT LOVERS OF ANY AGE!
He's free! The Amazing Hamweenie, legend in his own mind, hero to millions of adoring fans who have yet to meet him, has finally escaped the evil clutches of the little girl who showers him with love and stuffs him full of delectable treats. Where will our tortured star go? To the circus, of course! The spotlight of center ring beckons him — the elephants, monkeys, and tigers in desperate need of a leader. Hamweenie will gift them with his presence!
So why is it that his greatness goes unappreciated? Does no one recognize a true star when they see one?
In this companion to The Amazing Hamweenie, Patty Bowman brings a touch of Edward Gorey, a dash of Stewie Griffin, a pinch of Grumpy Cat, and even a shake of Maru to the secret mind of one adorable pet cat.
Praise for The Amazing Hamweenie
"Hamweenie (you just can't write that name too much) dreams of being loved the world over and imagines an intricate Macy's Hamweenie balloon flying over the real version of himself, as he sits atop a float while crowds cheer. Readers will too." —Booklist
"With the alphabet as his jumping off point, Bruel (Boing!) recounts just how far things can go awry when cats go bad. After Kitty discovers that the only food in the house consists of 26 kinds of vegetables (asparagus, beets, cauliflower and on through zucchini), her mood turns blacker than her scraggly fur coat. She unleashes her own alphabet of woe that will have youngsters howling with laughter (and cat owners young and old will understand that many of these scenarios do not require a total suspension of disbelief). Bruel chronicles the misbehavior by dividing the spreads into eight strips, each containing a kind of visual one-liner devoted to a single letter. 'She... Quarreled with our neighbors,' the author writes, as Kitty watches through the mail slot while a human holds a note that reads, 'Meow Hiss Hiss...!' The furry protagonist even 'Sold my toys' (Kitty seems to have appropriated her unseen owner's lemonade stand for this purpose). But when the humans restock the larder with cat-friendly food (rhino ravioli, shark sushi, etc.), the feline turns over a new leaf — in alphabetical fashion, of course. Even readers who've mastered their ABCs will laugh at Bruel's gleefully composed litanies and the can-you-top-this spirit that animates every page. Ages 4-8." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
Mr. Pants is a hilarious comic book style chapter book series, perfect for fans of Bad Kitty and Fly Guy!
Mr. Pants only has a few hours to make a movie with his sisters if theyre going to win the filmmaking contest and get a trip to Hawaii. Why do dumb things like chores and tea parties always get in the way? With a little creative thinking, and a big dose of goofball personality, the cats get their debut film done just in the nick of time.
And don't forget about Mr. Pants: It's Go Time!
In this riotous picture book about a cat gone berserk, Kitty is not happy when she's told her favorite foods are gone, and all that's left are unappealing vegetables. She stops misbehaving when tastier things arrive.
