Book - 2020

"Life was quiet for Cat (short for Catherine) and her dad until they adopted a cat named Sushi... now things are a bit too exciting! Between turning everything into either a personal scratching post or litter box, and the constant cat and mouse game of 'love me/leave me alone,' Cat and her dad have a lot to learn. It's a hilarious chronicle of daily life of a single parent, a little girl named Cat, and their cat."-- Back cover of Volume 1.

Review by Booklist Review

In this delightful book of comic vignettes, readers get to know Cath and her dad as they navigate being the caretakers of their fluffy, exuberant kitty, Sushi. From outdoor adventures to cat-food dilemmas, as well as the dreaded trip to the veterinarian, Sushi experiences it all, along with a lot of love and snuggles from his humans. All the short one-page stories fit in the bigger picture of their life together, but each page is its own singular joke. The artwork is cute and charming with precise line drawings punctuated by bright pops of color throughout. Sometimes readers get to see the inner workings of Sushi's mind, but most of the time, Cath or her dad are narrating the traditionally paneled pages. This cute and easy-to-pick-up story will delight anyone who gets a kick out of cats and their hilarious antics. A fun romp through the daily life of Sushi the cat and the humans who love him.

Move over Garfield, there is a sassy new orange kitty in town.In this abundantly cute French import, Cat, a young girl with gravity-defying salmon-hued pigtails, lives with her single father and their mischievous, apricot-striped cat, Sushi. As seen in a series of rib-tickling, mostly one-page vignettes, Sushi engages in all the lovably predictable kitty behavior feline aficionados would expect: scratching up the walls and curtains and commandeering the best seat in the house. In one memorable episode, Cat tries unsuccessfully to keep Sushi from clawing the carpet and consequently angering her father, so she conspicuously rearranges the room to hide the offending spots, leaving the living room in comic disarray. Each graphic-format page is styled with small, mostly borderless bubblelike panels and relies on a barrage of episodic sight gags with a high-energy palette of sugary pinks, cheerful blues, and citrusy greens. Imagination runs unfettered, from both Cat's and Sushi's perspectives. Sushi is an indoor cat (with only the occasional jaunt through his cat door), so most of his adventures are rather insular and almost exclusively involve only Cat and her father, who are both white. The few additional humans depicted are mostly white and usually slender. Cat fans should find plenty to purr about. (Graphic fiction. 7-10) Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
