LUPIN LEAPS IN: A BREAKING CAT NEWS ADVENTURE, by Georgia Dunn, Andrews McMeel Publishing


40622481

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 THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

My family advocates for animals, and we foster animals and have fur-babies of our own. Right now, we have two cats of our own, Boo and Murphy. But we are also fostering a Jerry and a Taffy.  We also have a rescue dog named Molly.

So I guess it’s fair to say I’m an animal lover and love cats very much. When I was younger, the book series out there for cat enthusiasts was Garfield. He is without a doubt, my hero. I absolutely adore his antics.

So when this book came up, I was a bit unsure if I’d like it. I have to admit, I’ve never heard of Dunn.  I did a bit of research and discovered she’s really popular with the newer generations and you can find her strips on

Go Comics 

I note Garfield is there too. 🙂

So after reading this book, I have to say I just love all the fun and colourful artwork. I love the idea of the cats reporting what they see going on using their unique perspectives. What a hoot! Each character’s personality brings a smile to my face because they mirror the antics of my own cats, like defiantly getting on surfaces they know they shouldn’t be on.

I love seeing things through the eyes of the cats, like when shaving a mans face comes into play and how Elvis interupts this. I think the perspective of a cat, especially how Dunn has done it, can’t be more funny.

I’m still getting used to the characters but I plan on finding and reading more Lupin and friends’ antics in the future. If you love cats, you’ll adore Lupin, Elivis and the other cats in this book. Never a dull moment.
