Honestly - I only requested this book because the author is Margaret Atwood. I didn't know it was a graphic novel! That said, if you aren't a fan of graphic novels, don't bother. However, I am a fan so I was pleasantly surprised. If you are a fan AND a cat lover, even better! The story is interspersed with little factoids about cats and a plea to keep your cats safely indoors. I am both fan and cat lover. Angel CatBird is about a bunch of half-cats (once you read it you will understand)....our hero is a person-cat-owl thing. The art is gorgeous, the story is fun, the villains are evil and the half-cats are very cool. I am looking forward to the second volume.
