Catwad: It's Me

Publisher: Scholastic

Catwad, a grumpy blue cat, is best friends with Blurmp, a relentlessly happy and pretty stupid orange cat. In the fine tradition of cat cartoons like Garfield and Grumpy Cat, Catwad and Blurmp navigate the nitty gritty of life at the chalk face of being: ordering pizza, brushing your teeth, truth or dare, making lemonade and the crushing inevitability of rainbows.

Rather than one whole comic book-length story, Catwad: It’s Me comprises many short comic strips, some just one page long and others that stretch for a number of pages, meaning you can open it pretty much anywhere and dive straight in – ideal for those looking for a quick read and for kids with short attention spans. The silly humour is perfect for fans of Spongebob Squarepants or those who love the surreal and hilarious, and the minimalist style means there aren’t any complicated backdrops or visual puns to decode. A really fun comic, very accessible and easy to read.
