Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
From the creator of Captain Underpants comes the hilarious Dogzilla and Kat Kong by Dav Pilkey, first published in 1993 and featuring a wacky mix of animal photos, art and a deadpan Sam Spade-style narrative. The first title begins, "It was summertime in the city of Mousopolis," as the dreadful Dogzilla terrorizes the mice with her horrible dog breath. In the second, Doctor Varmint and Rosie Rodent capture the mighty Kat Kong and bring him to Mousopolis, where he breaks free and tears through the streets. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Praise for Kat Kong and Dogzilla:
"These two brazenly funny picture books spoof Godzilla and King Kong as they launch the mice inhabitants of Mousopolis against, respectively, a killer cat and dog. . . . Pilkey's irreverent exuberance is irresistible."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Kat Kong 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

We discoverred both the KatKong and Dogzilla childrens books by Dav Pilkey in 1993/1994. Our kids were 4 plus years of age at the time and these books were shared with them at bath time and bed time repeatedly over the next few years. And now our grand kids ages 3 and 5 are enjoying these timeless books with equal enthusiasm!

My son who is 4, and I, read this book and DogZilla by checking it out from the library and fell in love with them. I bought them both along with a few of other Pilkey's books.

My son has loved this book from the first time I brought it home. He is only 3, but has every page memorized. Great book for all ages.

This is definitely a great book--not just for kids, but for cat-lovers too! I have a cat that looks (and acts) just like Kat Kong. We have a great time reading this with him around!
