Comments for Kat Kong

Kat Kong: 09/05/11

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)I saw a copy of Kat Kong by Dav Pilkey in the bookstore and had to grab it. The cover shows a tuxedo house cat looming over a city skyline. Having seen King Kong more times than I can count, you can understand why I laughed and then squeed.

Kat Kong is the sequel (apparently) to Dog Zilla but I haven't read it. I'm not as much of a dog person as I am a cat person. Besides, King Kong came first!

In this version Dr. Varmint and his assistant Rosie Rodent have made and captured a giant cat monster. Like his predecessor, chains and ropes can't hold the great Kat Kong and soon he is let loose on the city.

It's a cute cat and mouse parody of an old horror classic. My children who haven't had the pleasure of seeing the original were less impressed with the book. Harriet liked the giant cat but Sean could take or leave the book.

Four stars
