Overview

Inside Our Little Kat King, New York Times best-selling author Patrick McDonnell presents his 15th chronological collection of Mutts strips. Showcasing nearly two years worth of color Sunday strips and black-and-white daily strips, Our Little Kat King includes pop-art splash pages that highlight McDonnell's imaginative artwork and distinctive style.

Deceptively simple yet strikingly profound, Mutts speaks to fans of all ages through McDonnell's expressive art and humorous, often philosophical musings.

Our Little Kat King is an emotive collection brimming with postulations and punch lines, as well as enlightenment and entertainment. Whether Earl and Mooch are contemplating the cosmos, embarking on a new adventure, or curling in for a much-needed nap, these two lighthearted pals remind us of the simple pleasures that make life so "shweet."

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—The comic strip Mutts has been following the adventures of Earl the dog and Mooch the cat since 1994. Its gentle but clever humor takes a nod from Charles Schulz's Peanuts and Walt Kelly's Pogo, and the quiet pace, large lettering, and simple illustrations nod to early comic strips such as George Herriman's Krazy Kat. With a few delicate lines, McDonnell creates a host of vivid characters, and the scrappy but expressive illustrations will appeal to fans of Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes. Children will enjoy the frequent puns and the cuddly animal characters that make them. Suited for both independent reading and read-alouds.—Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
