LUPIN LEAPS IN
by Georgia Dunn
Andrews McMeel Publishing
Middle Grade Humor / Comics
208 pages
ages 8 to 12




Lupin Leaps In is a brand-new comic collection of Breaking Cat News for middle grade readers!  This just in: Three adorable house cats are reporting the most hilarious breaking news! Based on author/illustrator Georgia Dunn’s real-life pets, Elvis, Lupin, and Puck strap on neckties and pick up microphones to provide the most up-to-date relevant news stories (at least according to them).

Picking up where they last left off in Breaking Cat News, are Elvis, Puck, and Lupin reporting on the breaking news that matters to cats. Cynical, no-nonsense Elvis and shy, sweet, sensitive Puck are the reporter kitties in the field, while the adventurous jokester Lupin serves as anchor cat. Together, they're back to break headlines on mysterious man "tails," all things holiday-related, new cat friends, and all the daily happenings in and outside their home. 

The "More to Explore" section includes how to draw the BCN news crew, how to draw expressions, how to draw your pet as a reporter, and paper dolls of the crew, along with props and extras!



MY TIDBITS

Cat lovers beware! This collection of breaking news guarantees giggles and smiles on every page.

Three cats—Elvis, Puck and Lupin—are on the prowl for the daily, breaking news. And in their household with the man, woman and baby, there's always something happening. The moments are short and cute and illustrate how crazy—at least in cats' eyes—things can be.

This runs along cat humor poor. It's a bit cynical at times, and sure to grab the interest not only of young readers. The three cats pack a ton of character as they tackle the daily news of life. They are never mean, but simply deal with everyday situations from a different perspective as humans. It's fun to grab up and read a bit here and a bit there, and always expect the unexpected.

The comics are simple and yet bring across so much. It's hard not to fall in love with these three felines.
