Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Miss Annie might just be a kitten, but she's ready for adventure. Four-month-old Miss Annie lives with The Dad, The Mom and young mistress Sarah--all of whom readers only see from the thighs down. Miss Annie defends her territory against potted plants and ventures on to The Dad's desk despite stern warnings because pens and erasers are amusing. After all, there is little that a roll on the back and a purr can't fix where humans are concerned. Miss Annie's fondest wish is to go outside despite her mouse friend Keshia's warnings of danger. When a window's accidentally left open, Miss Annie leaps at the opportunity and meets old Zeno and beautiful Persian Rostropovna, who teach her about dogs and cars and invite her out to run the rooftops at night. Prolific French cartoonist Le Gall teams with debut graphic-novel illustrator Balthazar and colorist Doo for this first of two simultaneously published urban kitty adventures. In Rooftop Cat, Miss Annie gets a cat door, participates in a neighborhood cat fight with unfortunate results for Zeno and finds a male "friend" for Keshia. A charming balance of cartoon and natural kitty-ness in full-color, eight-panel pages, this cat's-eye view of life will induce purrs in feline fans everywhere. (Graphic fiction. 8-12)
Publishers Weekly
Miss Annie is a kitten, and she does all of the expected kitten activities—playing with pens and yarn, napping on armchairs, and begging for food. But she does the unexpected, too, like befriending a mouse she knows she’s supposed to hunt. On her first adventure outside of the house, she meets two older cats, Zeno and Miss Rostropovna, who guide her through the big, new world. Annie has a wide range of expressions, from her perked ears to the tip of her pert tail, a perfectly captured paragon of kittenhood. With a charming sensibility and lovely art in the vein of adult bandes desinées like The Rabbi’s Cat, this gentle story of discovery is kept lively with Annie’s antics, interior dialogue, and interactions with the creatures, human and otherwise, in her neighborhood. Ages 7–10. (Mar.)

Meet the Author

Born in Rouen in France, award-winning writer Frank Le Gall published his first works at the age of sixteen. Since then Le Gall has continued writing graphic novel adventures, occasionally taking a break for animation and short stories.
Born in 1981 in La Louvière, Belgium, Flore Balthazar decided at the age of nine that she would become a cartoonist, after reading Hergé's Tintin and other comics at the local library across the street from her house. She soon realized that her art would not look exactly like Tintin, and developed her own self-taught style. She eventually went on to study at the Binche and the Etterbeek Academies of Fine Arts (both in Belgium), also studying Slavic languages and literature at the university in Brussels. She quickly realized that the best way to become a cartoonist is simply to keep drawing. She now lives in Orléans, France. Miss Annie is her first graphic novel series.
