CATWAD is here!

Catwad is available now!

Watch the
book trailer!

Kirkus Reviews says "It's sketch-comedy nonsense, but preteens will be onboard immediately and asking for the next volume at the close of this short collection."

You can order it at
Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Target or look for it at
your local
indie bookstore.


Here's a great review from Belmont Books:

"Catwad is an absolutely hilarious book. The story is about two cats, one is a dim witted, happy cat called blurp. Blurp is best friends with Catwad who is grumpy and grouchy. It's a quick graphic novel with short stores about the cats and their different adventures. Everyone will enjoy this book. - Meshkeen and Adro

And a couple other new reviews:

The Bulletin for the Center for Children's books says its "goofy humor" and "lively dialogue" is "a particularly effective choice for reluctant readers and class clowns."

Publisher's Weekly likes "the humorous prose and bright illustrations" and says that "younger readers in particular are sure to enjoy Catwad and Blurmp's friendship."

"Seriously, your kids will love this book. And I believe it's going to be a series, so hooray for never-ending Catwad and Blurmp adventures from Jim Benton!" - That Unique* Weblog


"Benton's artwork bursts with color and will pull in reluctant readers like moths to a flame. VERDICT: Grumpy Cat meets The Odd Couple, for kids who like to laugh." - School Library Journal


Hey who's that up on the video wall at Target?
