The First Cat in Space Ate Pizza (The First Cat in Space Ate Pizza #1)
Mac Barnett, illus. by Shawn Harris (HarperCollins/Tegen)
When rats from another galaxy begin devouring the moon, Earth’s smartest scientists dispatch a cybernetically enhanced cat—the First Cat in Space—to deal with the threat. Accompanied by guileless, toenail-clipping robot LOZ 4000 and the proud Moon Queen, First Cat adventures across a madcap geography. Adapting the “Live Cartoon” Instagram series that shares its title, Barnett and Harris replace innovative papercraft and DIY camerawork with an assured graphic novel full of absurdist humor.
