Lark Pien's clever, precise, unique comics are favorites with graphic-novel fans, and Long Tail Kitty marks her debut in the children's-book world. Meet Long Tail Kitty and his friends and neighbors: a bee who's friends with the flowers (at least the nice ones); Good Tall Mouse, who likes ice skating; and a family of aliens who drop in for one night of fun. The warmth and visual wit of these stories are sure to win over young readers, who will want to return again and again to Long Tail Kitty's house, by the hill, by the meadow, by the lake, by the river, by the town, by the bridge on the street where he lives.

I was familiar with Lark Pien through some of her previous work in comics, as well as the picture book Mr. Elephanter, so we checked out Long Tail Kitty from the library. The first chapter serves as a bit of introduction and prologue, before the chapters which include wacky fun as Long Tail Kitty: gets a bee sting (and meets some cranky flowers who like cookies), learns to ice skate, makes dinner with friends, and plays with visiting aliens. It’s great! Lots of laughter with this one. I should buy it and pretend my son asked me to. He'll cover for me as long as I share it with him.

There may be one mention of someone needing to "wee" in this one, and I think someone mentions their "bum." So depending on your kiddo's propensity for repeating words ad nauseum, you may want to pre-screen it and see what you think.
