Editorial Reviews

Review

"Marie Unanue's debut, 'The Adventures of Phatty and Payaso', is a fun and engaging fable which shows the power of friendship, kindness, and self-confidence." - His Eminence, Timothy Cardinal Dolan

"Entertaining and accessible, The Adventures of Phatty and Payaso is a fun early chapter book that emphasizes bravery and compassion." - 4 Stars, Foreword Reviews     

"Middle-graders will surely devour this and hope for a sequel involving this cast of characters." - Blue Ink Review

"A feel-good novel for readers of all ages that teaches the importance of accepting others, regardless of their differences. The duty of saving his mother's jewels, and quite possibly his life, lies in the paws of Phatty the cat, from the evil hawk, Crawler, along with the help of family and friends along the way. This is a good versus bad plot that even has a twist ending." - Rachel Dehning, Manhattan Book Review

"A delightfully original and deftly crafted novel by an author with a genuine flair for anthropomorphic character and narrative driven storytelling, Marie Unanue's "The Adventures of Phatty and Payaso: Central Park" is an unfailingly entertaining read that is unabashedly and unreservedly recommended for community library Contemporary General Fiction collections." - Midwest Book Review

From the Back Cover

Phatty the cat loves nothing more than spending his days balanced atop his favorite chair gazing out his windows at Central Park below. Everything is simply fan-tabby-lous until one day when the meanest hawk in the park lands on his terrace and makes a terrifying announcement that he is coming for Phatty and his furry little friends.

When Phatty decides he is tired of being a scaredy-cat, he jumps into a laundry bag and escapes to Central park to stop Crawler the bully hawk once and for all. But his unplanned operation goes horribly wrong when he finds himself alone and lost in the park. When his best friend, Payaso, realizes his partner in crime is missing, he teams up with several animals to find Phatty. As the band of furry pas set out on a hilarious journey, they quickly realize that if they put aside their differences and work together, it might just be enough to save a loveable undercat-and each other.
