This just in: your favorite purr-nalists are back and reporting on all of the most pressing cat issues in this third collection of Breaking Cat News comics for middle-grade readers.
Anchor cat Lupin and his faithful field reporters, Elvis and Puck, are as cute and funny as ever in Elvis Puffs Out. There’s no shortage of news to cover this time around: In the wake of a winter snowstorm, the team tries their hand at meteorology (with mixed results). Man and Woman nurse a stranded kitten back to health. And the pessimistic, straight-laced Elvis demonstrates that even he has a soft side.
The fun continues in the “More to Explore” section, with lessons on wooden-spoon puppet theaters, the basics of reporting your own news stories, and—as always—charming paper dolls to craft.
The Cat News reporters are back in this fun graphic novel. The cat reporters live with a family with two toddlers and they find lots of breaking news in their daily lives. They experience a snowstorm, a birthday party, a protest, and a stray kitten being fostered in the home.
This is a hilarious graphic novel series. My family and I care for a colony of feral cats at our house, so I could relate to these different cat personalities. I loved the reaction that the cats had to snow. They said the ground had disappeared and created a void. Some of our cats just experienced snow for the first time and they were just as shocked as the cats in this book.
The cats also reported on the news in a hilarious way. The actions of the humans often caused breaking news for the cats. For example, they were worried when the humans brought fire, in the form of a birthday candle on a cake, near the baby on her birthday. The cats asked the humans for interviews, but their owners couldn’t understand them so they couldn’t give interviews.
This is a hilarious parody on breaking news for cat lovers!
