Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4–Long Tail Kitty talks like any youngster eager to share a story. Children will enjoy the simple language that he uses to introduce himself and his friends. The book starts with where he lives and progresses to what happens when he plays in a meadow, makes friends, and eats food. The story is organized into short vignette-style chapters. Long Tail Kitty encounters flowers with feelings, talks to a greedy grumpy grateful bee, becomes friends with Good Tall Mouse, and plays with aliens from outer space. Children will enjoy Pien's alliteration and her soft, pastel watercolors. Bonus pages include how to draw Long Tail Kitty and how to show his many moods. Give this to youngsters new to the graphic-novel format.–Lisa Gieskes, CA Johnson Preparatory Academy, Columbia, SC

About the Author

Lark Pien worked as an architectural designer before she turned to drawing her acclaimed comics full time. She has been a resident artist at San Francisco's Cartoon Art Museum and Asian Art Museum, as well as the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California. Lark currently lives in Oakland, California, with her husband, who draws comics too, and their tuxedo cat, who likes to play, play, play.

More About the Author

Lark Pien is the colorist of the National Book Award Finalist and Printz Award Winner American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang. She received the Kim Yale Best New Talent Award in 2004, and Best Colorist Harvey Award in 2007.

Pien's handprinted minicomics include Mr. Boombha, Stories from the Ward, and the Long Tail Kitty series. Long Tail Kitty is her first hard cover comic book, published by Blue Apple Books, 2009. Mr. Elephanter is her first hard cover children's book, published by Candlewick Press, 2010.

Pien is a graduate of California Polytechnic University in 1995 with a bachelors degree in architecture. Though she had an interest in comics at an early age, Pien did not make her first comic until 1997. She continued to work in the architectural industry while drawing comics, allotting more time to her artistic interests each year. In 2006, Pien adopted art as her full time career and now enjoys her days (and nights) drawing illustrations, oil painting, and creating comics.

Long tail kitty is incredibly adorable and funny. It takes about 30 minutes to read but it's enchanting and even fun to read as an adult (I am 25). It's not entirely engrossing to me story wise, but my kids love it.

Item was just as described and shipped quickly. We had not read it previous to purchase and my 9 y/o son and 7 y/o daughter but enjoyed reading a few times.

Long Tail Kitty never fails to make me smile. Bought it as a gift for a child, ended up keeping a copy for myself!
