"The Cat Kid Comic Club is in crisis! After learning that one of their comics will be published, the baby frogs are filled with anxiety and doubt. How will they get their creative groove back? Will Naomi or Melvin emerge as a leader? Will Flippy convince them to finally straighten up and fly right? The story is hysterical, thought-provoking, and full of action-packed mini-comics: ""Frogzilla vs. Mechafrogzilla,"" ""I Am Dr. Fredric Wertham,"" ""Two Birds,"" and ""RoboChubbs."" Best-selling author-illustrator Dav Pilkey shows the reader that the best way to influence people is to be open, gentle, and kind. The variety of art styles, paired with Pilkey's trademark storytelling and humour, inspires imagination and innovation for readers of all ages."

When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories. He spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books -- the very first adventures of Dog Man and Captain Underpants. In the second grade, Dav's teacher ripped up his comics and told him he couldn't spend the rest of his life making silly books. Fortunately, Dav was not a very good listener.

Praise for Cat Kid Comic Club: Irreverent, laugh-out-loud funny and... downright moving, it's a heartfelt celebration of coming into one's own as an artist, with all its frustrations and joys. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review Colorful, compelling, and laugh-out-loud funny. Every elementary school library needs this graphic novel. -- School Library Journal, starred review Pilkey deftly applies his trademark sly mix of revelation and in-your-face zaniness in busy, froglet-filled panels that take advantage of the anthology format to showcase comics' versatility. Mind-bending, in the best possible way. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review Pilkey deftly balances quiet life lessons with sheer loopiness for a winning, kid-friendly romp... Wise, funny, and whiplash-inducing: Pilkey delivers again. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
