From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 3 - Mr. Katapat "may look like an ordinary man, but really he is a great adventurer." He hunts for treasure in the jungle, travels through time, fights off pirates, and slays dragons - all through the pages of his favorite books from the local library. In fact, he wishes his everyday life could be just as exciting as the books he reads, until one day when, riding along on his unicycle with his nose in a book, he runs (literally) into the future Mrs. Katapat, likewise occupied. Barroux's whimsical, cartoon illustrations burst with thick strokes of color, whether Mr. Katapat is facing the greatest kung fu master in China or admiring the moon with his sweetheart. A light, charming tribute to the joys of reading. - Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia
