Chicken: A Comic Cat Memoir by Terese Jungle

A great read for kids and cats of all ages :-)

Chicken is a soulful expression of the love between cat and person as it collides with the powerful tide of family, friends, loss, and the invisible forces that connect us.

Double Gold Winner in the 2016 Global E-book Awards for Best Children’s Nonfiction and Best Pet Nonfiction! For anyone who has ever loved a cat, Chicken’s true story is a graphic novel that touches the heart. From funny to emotional, sweet to silly, thoughtful to mystical, this true cat memoir captures it all in 72 full-color, smile-making illustrations with bonus fun facts about cats and their habits.

“A beautiful, tenderly told story that’s appropriate for both children and adults. If you pay attention to all the little doodles, background decoration and the notes scattered throughout the illustrations, there’s a second story brewing just for adults. Look carefully, there are little gems buried in the details of the illustrations!”

— The Hungry Monster

About the Author

Author, artist, and educator, Terese Jungle received her M.F.A. in Visual Communications from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She taught graphic design for 10 years; has shown artwork in a range of mediums; and presently sells her art prints online and in boutique and museum gift shops. She wrote and illustrated "Chicken: A Comic Cat Memoir" over a period of years-after teaching classes, on breaks between sessions, in late nights and early mornings, on art retreats, and sometimes in her sleep. She found a home in the engaging but challenging process of combining autobiographical storytelling, comics, collage, graphic design, photography, and typography with new media (the book was created on an iPad).
"Chicken" is her first book, though in 2014, she and her daughter collaborated on "The Frizzball from Outer Space" booklet and pillow critter which can be found in Pittsburgh shops and online at, along with her digital art prints, typography-based silkscreen prints, and other visual merchandise, including prints of illustrations from "Chicken."
Despite her nomadic past, she remains (for now) in Pittsburgh, with her artist daughter and the next cat who found them.
