Our December 2020 Ages 5–6 Book of the Month

My pick of the month for December is real treat and absolute must for any Dog Man fans. Get ready for a different sort of reading experience in this all-new graphic novel series by bestselling author Dav Pilkey. Cat Kid Comic Club is a ground-breaking graphic novel that celebrates creativity and friendship, and is packed with his trademark humour and heart. This new book pushes the boundaries of visual storytelling with elements of comics, photography, painting, claymation and film animation to tell one cohesive story.

Here’s what Dav has to say about it: “I wanted to create a new storyline for Li’l Petey, a character in the Dog Man series who is based on my mom and who embodies love, optimism, and hope. In Cat Kid Comic Club, Li’l Petey keeps his promise to his best friend Molly that they will teach everyone how to make comics. Together they make mistakes but, with practice and persistence, they learn and become better artists. My hope is that kids everywhere are inspired to write their own stories, appreciate different ways of thinking and approaching art, and feel empowered to be creative.”

As the story unwinds with mishaps and hilarity, kids and families reading together will unleash their own creativity, learn different art forms and approaches to storytelling, and see the progress and improvements that come with practice and persistence. The engaging, highly-illustrated style that kids love is intended to encourage uninhibited creativity in kids and artists of all ages and his stories share common themes that celebrate friendship, empathy, and the triumph of the good-hearted.

Dav Pilkey was right at the forefront of the illustrated chapter book category and has made kids into readers worldwide – most importantly, always by making them laugh. The perfect, uplifting tonic for the times we are in now.
