    Kidlit Exchange / Scholastic partner – Thank you both for the ARC of CATWAD: IT’S ME, TWO. In what’s shaping up to be the most dysfunctional best frenemy/roommate/chosen family relationship since Ren & Stimpy, Catwad and Blurmp are back. CATWAD: IT’S ME, TWO, darker than its predecessor, centers around Blurmp.

In what’s shaping up to be the most dysfunctional best frenemy/roommate/chosen family relationship since Ren & Stimpy, Catwad and Blurmp are back. CATWAD: IT’S ME, TWO, darker than its predecessor, centers around Blurmp. But the happy-go-lucky Blurmp of the first Catwad has largely given way to a calculatingly stupid kitty whose mishaps mostly burn just Catwad. Except for the time Blurmp’s stupidity infects the world with a zombie virus. Make that mostly calculating – Blurmp still mistakes a diarrhea medicine commercial for a video game and has a blast beating… something. Oh, and then Blurmp glues himself to Catwad for eternity in a decoupage project gone wrong. On the minus side, the chapters are shorter (in the face of cooler storylines) and I got more “antagonistic co-dependency” than the quirky "opposites attract platonic love” of the first Catwad book. But with a name built on the Demotivators-style humor of an angry bunny and a Dumb Diary, nobody should come looking to Jim Benton to be the Tony Robbins of graphic novels. On the plus side, they were running zombie jokes, catnip that bites Catwad in the butt, and in general trippier pranks and storylines in the little vignettes. There is also a maze and a picture puzzle at the end, a plus up from the first book. In short, worth it for a reluctant reader as a quick, fun book as long as they understand that the over-the-top pranks don’t translate into real life. I’m still holding out hope for a Happy Bunny book, but Catwad/Blurmp’s wacky storylines will have me looking for their third adventure. CATWAD: IT’S ME, TWO is out Sept 17 from Scholastic/Graphix Books.

    This is a cute collection of cartoons featuring the funny, often grumpy kitty and his best friend who is gentler and often a cause of strife. So many funny moments and sweet stories. A lovely series.

    Like the first book, “Catwad #2: It’s Me, Two.,” by @jimbentonshots, had us bursting out laughing! Catwad and Blurmp are at it again with more crazy antics. This book is full of short comics. The two cats play video games, do some crafting, dress up for a costume party and face many more scenarios! This is a fun and silly delight. My 5 year old and 8 year old love this book and recommend it to anyone who likes laughing! Recommended for ages 8-12.

    This is my ten year old brothers review. My favorite chapter was crafts. I love that there was a joke in every single chapter. The drawings were great! I liked how simple they were. The interactive part at the end was super fun! Would recommend to anyone.

    2019 was not a good year for cat icons. We lost both the frowny-faced Siamese, Grumpy Cat and the adorable Lil Bub with her ever present tongue that stuck out. With their losses, this cat lover's heart was ripped into shreds. Thankfully, 2019 introduced us to a new adorable kitty- Catwad!

We lost both the frowny-faced Siamese, Grumpy Cat and the adorable Lil Bub with her ever present tongue that stuck out. With their losses, this cat lover's heart was ripped into shreds. Thankfully, 2019 introduced us to a new adorable kitty- Catwad! Catwad is a sarcastic blue fur ball who lives with his roommate, the rather dim Blurmp. Catwad loves terrorize Blurmp from making him think that there are zombies in the basement to playing a wide assortment of practical jokes. However, a lot of times the joke is on Catwad as much of Blurmp's antics gets his roommate into some sticky situations- literally! Catwad is the creation of Clyde's Jim Benton. Benton builds upon the formula of a snarky cat who is bothered by his housemates, like with Jim Davis' Garfield. But Benton adds alternate dimensions, fantasy and twist endings to make Catwad a truly unique comic. I chuckled so many times at the antics of these two kitties. What really makes Catwad so funny is the writing. Jim Benton has got to be a cat owner. Because someone with an aversion to gatos would not be able to capture the way those crazy felines act. I could so see some of my cats getting into the mischief Catwad and Blurmp do. This collection of short stories might have an occasional zombie or vampire, but they're not scary. Catwad is recommended for readers aged 8-12 but I think older readers and grown-ups will enjoy this too. There's a hint of Ren and Stimpy in this book without the intense level of gross-outs. Though some parents make object to some of the Tom and Jerry acts of violence that occur in this book. For example, one more than one occasion, Catwad loses his tail by some mishap. But by the next story, it's grown back. (I think Alfred, my tailless wonder, would love to be able to do that!) It's Me, Two is the second collection of Catwad stories. The first book, It's Me debuted in the Spring of 2019. If the young reader in your life falls in love with these felines, then be on the look out for book three, set to debut this April! Need some laughs? Then let the cat out of the book with these hilarious collections published by Scholastic!

    It’s Me, Two is a graphic novel that guarantees out-loud laughs. The story is about two cats named Catwad and Blurmp. They have crazy adventures like a trip to the basement, open mic night, and a hat store. Most of these adventures only occur because Blurmp is so incredibly naïve. This makes him ask ridiculous questions and do idiotic things. My favorite chapter is “Salad”. In “Salad”, Blurmp cooks Catwad a salad. Catwad is not in a salad mood, so he gives bad examples of slow, lazy animals who It’s Me, Two is a graphic novel that guarantees out-loud laughs. The story is about two cats named Catwad and Blurmp.

Catwad is not in a salad mood, so he gives bad examples of slow, lazy animals who eat salad. In the end, Blurmp amusingly insults Catwad by telling him he must eat lots of salad already. This ending was hilarious because Blurmp inadvertently insults Catwad, and Catwad’s reaction is priceless. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes comedy and graphic novels. I would also recommend this book to anyone above the age of 6. I give this book 5 stars. Reviewed by Levi M., Age 12, Denver Mensa

I do think that the humor in this book will draw in young readers and it is just the right level of humor for young kids to get, but I think the author takes it just a step too far by playing on the slowness of one of the two cats.

    Catwad and Blurmp's comic escapades continue in this collection of silly short comic stories. Blurmp almost wipes out the world with stupidity. Catwad and Blurmp also find disturbing links between animals who only eat veggies and activity levels. And a lot more silliness. This is definitely aimed at the younger end of middle grade, though I can see some middle school boys finding this absolutely hilarious (it's all about that maturity level thing).

This is definitely aimed at the younger end of middle grade, though I can see some middle school boys finding this absolutely hilarious (it's all about that maturity level thing). I personally find Catwad and Blurmp sometimes funny, often eye-roll-worthy, and their antics kind of forgettable. If you know a kid who likes silly cats, and duo's featuring a smart grump and a goofy idiot, hand them a Catwad book. Notes on content: Zombies are shown at one point but they are more laughable than scary.

    {My thoughts} – This is a neat little graphic novel for younger children that is part short comics and part short comic stories. The illustrations are bright and engaging. The characters are Catwad who is mean and Blurmp is well not the smartest kitten of the litter. The two of them go at it like cats and dogs for the most part and Catwad doesn’t seem to have any issues with making Blurmp see that he isn’t amused with his lack of intelligence.

I recommend this book for any child that enjoys graphic novels and comics. Overall I enjoyed this book much more then the first in the series!

    Catwad and Blurmp are back and...better than ever? Well, I guess that depends on your opinion of the duo, but if you've got an open mind, love snark by the ton, and can handle the innocence of Blurmp without mailing him off to abu dhabi, these guys are totally for you! Once again, they are toted for the younger set, and I'm not saying they won't find them funny, but older readers will be rolling in the aisles. No, really!

It's clever, witty, colorful, and fun...and I can't wait to see what they do next!

    This fun graphic novel will be very popular among the elementary school crowd. With bold, colors and quick, silly stories, this book is perfect for the reader who just wants to relax and have a giggle. And while the two characters in these stories play pranks and tease each other constantly, it's not over-the-top with violence or anything hateful. It kind of reminds me of some of the silly cartoons I used to watch when I was young.

Catwad and blurmp both were a little messy but blurmp made the whole house covered in food and a friend was going to come over but what catwad did not know is that blurmp’s Friend was a pig so they had to cancel the play date.

    I don't know why I enjoy these so much, but I do. I think kids will find it hysterical--sort of a Garfield for the new generation.
