“[The Rabbi’s Cat] is rich in historic and cultural detail and filled with great stories.”
–The Washington Post
“As fanciful as Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,
a whole lot shorter than The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, and a good deal more Jewish than Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, Joann Sfar’s graphic novel is hilarious, poignant, and wise. And now that I’m done reading it for the first time, I’m going to read it again.”
–Adam Langer, author of Crossing California
“An affecting, fraught, and–yes–sometimes hilarious tour de force about the complexities of living faithfully in a godless world.”
–The Boston Globe
“In The Rabbi’s Cat, Joann Sfar’s words and pictures mingle in a dance both sacred and skeptical, perfectly graceful and clumsily human. I loved this book and I’m so grateful Sfar’s brilliance has finally been brought to America. He is one of the brightest cartoonists in the world!”
–Craig Thompson, author of Blankets

If you ever wanted to read Talmudic discussions between a cat and a rabbi...this is the book for you. I am being pulled more and more to this genre of graphic novels.
