A pioneering new graphic novel series by Dav Pilkey, the author and illustrator of the internationally bestselling Dog Man and Captain Underpants series.
Naomi, Melvin, Pedro, and Poppy are just a few of the twenty-one rambunctious, funny, and talented baby frogs who share their stories in the Cat Kid Comic Club. Can Li'l Petey, Molly, and Flippy help the students express themselves through comics? The adventures in class and on paper unwind with mishaps and hilarity as the creative baby frogs experience the mistakes and progress that come with practice and persistence.
"Squid Kid and Katydid," "Baby Frog Squad," "Monster Cheese Sandwich," "Birds Flowers Trees: A Haiku Photo Comic," and other mini-comics are featured as stories-within-the-story, each done in a different style, utilizing humor and drama, prose and poetry, illustrated in different media including acrylics, pastels, colored pencils, felt-tip markers, clay, hand-made cardboard sculptures, photographs, pipe cleaners, construction paper collages, and cookies.
This heartfelt, humorous, and thoughtful graphic novel by award-winning author and artist Dav Pilkey will have readers of all ages laughing and motivated to unleash their own creativity.
Dog Man sidekick Li'l Petey and tadpole Molly are running a weeklong comics workshop for 21 quarrelsome froggies while the frogs' father, bionic fish Flippy, tries to enforce decorum. (Flippy admonishes the kids, "There is NOTHING funny about POO-POO!!!" to which they reply only with laughter.) As the froggies wrestle and eventually conquer their stymied or fearful imaginations, readers are treated to the wonderful variety of their work through brief mini-comics, from pencil drawings reminiscent of the Captain Underpants series to photocomics made with broken, hybridized action figures, all with classic Pilkey titles such as Supa Fail and The Cute, Little, Fluffy Cloud of Death. Amid this riotous creativity (awards are given for the craziest, grossest and "Most Violentest" comic), there's a lesson for Flippy, too: "be more chill," and don't play thought police. As wise Nurse Lady reminds him, "Look at Shakespeare: It's all death and violence and fart jokes!" Irreverent, laugh-out-loud funny and gosh darn it downright moving, it's a heartfelt celebration of coming into one's own as an artist, with all its frustrations and joys. Ages 7 up.
