Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

With lots of action and fantastically expressive illustrations, this graphic novel is a lot of fun for emerging readers and fans of silly stories. Cat on the Run in Cat of Death! is not a complex tale; it's mostly dialogue and action scenes, but the structure and art make it a good choice for reading aloud. Fans of the Bad Guys series will love that this book is set in the same world, parents will appreciate mouse deputy Marshall Cheeseman's The Fugitive-inspired speech. The social media element offers perspective on what we think we see and what we think is true, though readers who are not active on social media may miss some references. The cliffhanger ending will have readers clamoring for the next installment.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
