Tentative Synopsis

The newest graphic novel in the groundbreaking, worldwide bestselling series by Dav Pilkey, the author and illustrator of Dog Man.

The Cat Kid Comic Club is back in session again with a brand-new creative and funny graphic novel.


The Cat Kid Comic Club is deep in discovery in the newest graphic novel in the hilarious and heartwarming worldwide bestselling series by Dav Pilkey, the author and illustrator of Dog Man.

The Comic Club is going in all different directions! Naomi, Melvin, and siblings are each trying to find their purpose. Naomi has an idea to get rich quick that causes a lot of commotion and emotion. And when faced with rejections, the friends try and try again to stay true to their vision. To top it off, a surprise visitor comes to class to stir things up. Will a desire for money and power cloud Naomi's purpose? Is it quitting time? Will the club ever be the same?

The hilarity is nonstop as the baby frogs navigate sibling relationships, follow their path, and create art — with purpose! Featured as stories-within-the-story, the mini comics showcase each baby frog's perspective and individual art style.

In this groundbreaking graphic novel series, award-winning author and illustrator Dav Pilkey uses a variety of techniques — including acrylic paints, colored pencils, photography, collage, gouache, watercolors, and much more — to illustrate each frog's creative purpose and encourage teamwork. The kaleidoscope of art styles, paired with Pilkey's trademark storytelling and humor, fosters creativity, collaboration, independence, and empathy. Readers of all ages will enjoy this fun, exciting, and purposeful graphic novel adventure.
