Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-Binkley is a lonely kid who instantly falls in love with a cat; unfortunately for him, though, his pet happens to be the brainless Bill the Cat. Modern audiences might not understand that Bill the Cat and his friend Opus the Penguin come from the old comic strip Bloom County; this may alienate some, but a deep understanding of the characters isn't necessary to enjoy the story. Bill is then quickly taken away from Binkley, leaving the boy to pine for his friend while his cat goes on an epic journey. Full-page scenes depicting Bill's many adventures, from leading his cat sled team to herding a group of elephants, certainly make the book. Brightly colored and detailed and drawn in Breathed's signature style, the images will delight fans and newcomers alike. With Opus reuniting Bill with his boy, Breathed focuses on the warmth of his characters and wackiness of the tale rather than on the satire of most of his comics. VERDICT Probably more enjoyable for adults than for kids, this title is an additional purchase.-Peter Blenski, Greenfield Public Library, WI

5.0 out of 5 stars this comfortably straddles the realm between a children's book and an ...
By James L. Ball on April 12, 2017
At last the complete origin story of Bill the Cat. Only Binkley could stumble on such a treasure. I always suspected the link with Garfield that only the aliens observing our "Mostly Harmless" little marble would know. As with all of Mr. Breathed's stand alone books, this comfortably straddles the realm between a children's book and an adult graphic novel. Kind of like "Mars Needs Mom's" meets "Flawed Dogs". By the way, MNM was a much better movie than it got credit for. Also, procure a copy of the Xmas special, "A Wish For Wings That Work". In fact, buy everything Berkley Breathed has ever done. You will love it all and he could probably use the money.
