Kids say (2 ):

This series about a talking cat who's trying to get back to his home planet is a fun, fresh way to look at kid troubles like anger management and feeling out of place. It isn't easy navigating intergalactic friendships between species, but somehow Raj's kind, quiet nature is the perfect foil for his alien cat's over-the-top aggression. The writing in the Klawde: Evil Alien Warlord Cat series is a bit dense, and readers need to focus to follow the narration jumps between the cat from Lyttyrboks and the kid from Brooklyn. The wordplay is lovely, though, and it's worth sounding out Klawde's odd spellings to find hidden jokes.

Raj's interactions with the kids in his new town seem a little unrealistic (most parents wouldn't send their kid to a survival camp alone when he's already feeling vulnerable in their new town), but when the premise is a cat who builds teleporters from memory, it's best not to question the reality and to just sit back and enjoy a funny, engaging read.
