Review: Grumpy Cat Volume 1
Grumpy Cat meme's have become one of my personal favorites. I just love the cute grumpy faces paired with the hilarious sayings. Needless to say when I saw this on Netgalley I just had to check it out! While the images are cute and I loved Pokey's youthful optimism and naivety I didn't seem to connect so well with my beloved Grumpy Cat on the pages. Instead of the witty one liners and snappy comebacks I was expecting, I felt that that this was too reminiscent of Garfield playing tricks on Odie. In fact I seemed to keep hearing Garfield's voice in my head as I was reading Grumpy Cat's narrative. I did think some of the stories were cute if not exactly what I expected and although I can't say I loved this as much as I was hoping, I also can't say that it was bad. I can however say that I thought the illustration was great and that I think others would definitely enjoy this book especially those who may not go into it with predetermined expectations such as I had. If your a fan of Garfield and his trickery then you may enjoy The Misadventures of Grumpy Cat and Pokey ( Grumpy Cat Volume 1 ).
