Comments for Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book

Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book: 08/09/14

cover artGrumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book by Grumpy Cat is a small hardback humor book with life tips from the internet meme sensation, Grumpy Cat. The book includes some interactive bits like a crossword (every answer being no) and a dot-to-dot.

The cat behind the phenomenon is Tartar Sauce, a domestic short hair born with feline dwarfism. A post on Reddit when she was five months old became an instant meme sensation. A YouTube video posted shortly after went instantly viral.

2013 was the year where on Twitter and Tumblr, at least in the librarian circles, most memes involved either Grumpy Cat or Hyperbole and a Half comics. Grumpy Cat has also been making appearances at a variety of conferences.

I think Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book would have struck me as funnier if either I didn't know so much about Tartar Sauce or if the pictures were drawings instead of photographs. The thing is, she doesn't look grumpy to me any more. She just looks like a cat.

Three stars
