Synopsis

Cat Dad, King of the Goblins by Britt Wilson

Miri and Luey have a dilemma. Their dad's been turned into a cat and their closet is a garden full of goblins. There is only one thing for them to do? grab their friend Phil the frog and dive headfirst into a wild, woolly, and wacky adventure.Britt Wilson grew up in Brampton, Ontario. She attended both OCAD and Sheridan College, eventually graduating from Sheridan with a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Illustration. Wilson published her first book, Britt Wilson's Greatest Book on Earth, a collection of her mini-comics, with Conundrum Press in 2012. In 2013, her whimsical and masterful lettering style graced the pages of the Adventure Time Fionna & Cake comic book. She now lives in Toronto, Ontario, with her husband and white cat.

Reviews

? This is a fun comic book. The story is exciting and silly ? what person has a cat for a dad? How do goblins grow from fungus? ? It is easy to read and I think most children my age will like it. ? Rachel, Age 8, San Francisco Book Review I would recommend Cat Dad, King of the Goblins for all readers who enjoy fantasy and love to lose themselves in a good book. ? Teresa Iaizzo, CM: Canadian Review of Materials? Why do I love this comic so? Female POC main characters (plus Phil, who happens to be a frog). An insanely creative story line. Very accurate cat behavior. Brilliant color dichotomies. Generally completely hilarious. ? Allyce Amidon, Foreword Reviews? If Cat Dad, King of the Goblins sounds like a wacky kids

's because that's just what it is. Britt Wilson (Britt Wilson's Greatest Book on Earth) has created a fun, colorful romp that kids who might be a little too young for Adventure Time will understand and enjoy. ? Andy Wolverton, The Comics Alternative? I can see kids appreciating the energy that's brimming from each page. Impossible to resist. ? Zainab Akhtar, Comics and Cola? It's a naughty, rule-breaking, brazenly bizarre kind of wholesomeness, but ultimately this book is a good, clean presentation of youthful adventure fantasies. It's also about the way kids can adjust to, and accept, whatever is different or challenging about their family life ? even closet portals to goblin kingdoms ? as long as they feel safe and loved. ? Jake Austen, Chicago Tribune? Wilson's incredible Technicolor art and dynamic drawings will enchant kids. ? Lisa Gieskes, Richland County Public Library, Columbia, SC, School Library Journal? Wilson's purple-heavy palette, loopy cartoon figures, and playful sound effects (? FLA-WALLOP ) are a great complement to the fast-paced story, which should find an eager audience among fans of the TV show Adventure Time. ? Sarah Hunter, Booklist? Once the adventure starts, the book's pacing is breathless. That said, the brightness of the colors and Wilson's rendering skills give the book a flamboyant decorative quality that nonetheless doesn't interfere with the book's pacing. The reader is encouraged to stop and take a look around, but not for too long.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
