School Library Journal - 05/01/2021 K-Gr 3—"There is a creature prowling around our home! It is covered in thousands of soft fibers and its mouth stones are sharp!" Based on his popular comic series "Strange Planet," Pyle debuts with the tale of strangely humanoid blue beings, Lifegiver and Offspring, studying the behavior of a "sneaking, hiding, vibrating creature." Lifegiver and Offspring observe this indoor household creature sneaking silently across the floor, scratching the "group-soft seat" with its "deathblades," and knocking over "hydration cylinders." Digitally drawn, Pyle's signature pink-and-blue comic panels expand to full-page spreads in this clever ode to cats. Preschoolers may need help crossing into Pyle's land of succinct analysis and commentary on human behavior, but school-aged children will find it simultaneously absurd and hilarious. Adult readers familiar with the comic series frequently shared on social media will also enjoy sharing this book with children. Readers new to Pyle's cunning and unique descriptions may appreciate the list of "Commonly Observed Objects" at the end of the book. VERDICT A great choice for young readers beginning to explore graphic novels, this is an essential purchase, ready to tickle children and adults alike.—Emily Brush, Novi P.L., MI - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
