Look at the cover of this book. Look at it!!

How in the world could I ever say no to this book? (Hint: I couldn't.)

Written from the point of view of Koko the cat, the Foodgiver disappears and a mysterious contraption sends Koko and her sibling annoyance, the stupid and smelly Journey to a Lovecraftian realm in search of him — and of breakfast. I can't imagine that writing from the point of view of a cat would be easy, but Chris W. Sears makes it seem effortless. From the determined, fearless Kok

A tale of two kitties deftly woven in with a Cthulhu cult summoning the Great One himself. Very humorous, and best of all, captures the essence of cats to a tee. Only a cat would (view spoiler). I would love to read further adventures of Koko and Journey in the Meow-thos. ...more

I will admit right up front that I was an early reader for this book, which leaves the objectivity of this review in question. :)

But I can't not comment on Koko and Journey and the Foodgiver and their adventure!

I didn't know I needed a story about cats versus Cthulhu in my life, but it turns out I did. Writing from a "weird" perspective is not easy, and it's tougher to do right, but I think Chris did a great job with the cats' "voices." I don't have a ton of experience with cats (mostly with one

A Quick, Enthralling Afternoon Read (Especially for Cat Lovers!)

I read this book on a recent flight home and found I couldn’t put it down. Maybe that’s because I have two cats myself and spent the majority of the time laughing at Journey and Koko’s antics, wondering if their thoughts might actually represent my own cats’ meows and thoughts. Or maybe it’s because the author has done an excellent job creating a world that’s gripping and satisfying in such a short amount of time.

This is a must-read

Very cute book, but not at all scary or even spooky. It's more of an adventure told from the point of view of Koko the cat. One morning, the Foodgiver doesn't serve breakfast, and Koko goes on a journey, though not necessarily to find him. Koko believes she's perfectly capable of taking care of herself. Her housemate, Journey, goes with her.

The writing level is middle grade, and might work for a child who loves cats, and a little creepiness. There are some nice descriptions, but there's also a l
With a brilliant little nod to Lovecraft's The Cats of Ulthar, author Sears pens as delightful tale of feline mischief and shenanigans with a Mythos backdrop. Koko and Journey, two very different house cats, awaken one morning to discover their Foodgiver missing and his bedroom wet with fishy water. For fans of Lovecraft and lovers of kitty lap warmers, this book is sheer delight. Kudos! ...more

Cats and Cthulu: What Could Be Better?

I loved this odd little book. Despite the Lovecraft-inspired theme, it could almost be read to older children at bedtime. The story has a lot of heart, though Koko would reject the idea. As well as an entertaining tale, the author has shared wise insight into the inner life of cats.
