Description

This colorful graphic novel features the philosophical and existential musings of a cat named Penny.

Told through a collection of stories, Penny: A Graphic Memoir wanders through her colourful imagination as she recalls her humble beginnings on the streets of New York and waxes poetic about the realities of her sheltered life living in an apartment with her owners.

Filled with ennui, angst, and vivid dreams, Penny proves that being a cat is more profound than we once thought. A unique blend of high art and humour, Penny: A Graphic Memoir perfectly portrays one cat’s struggles between her animal instincts, her philosophical reflections, and the lush creature comforts of a life with human servants.

DISTINCTIVE, BEAUTIFUL, AND FUNNY: Reading like a highbrow Garfield, this unique dose of sardonic wit and cat content combines humour and storytelling with Karl Stevens’ very realistic illustration style. Fresh and imaginative, this graphic novel feels familiar and accessible, featuring one of the world’s most beloved animals.

MPRESSIVE AND DECORATED AUTHOR: Karl Stevens has written four graphic novels, and his comics have appeared regularly in the New Yorker, Village Voice, and Boston Phoenix. His work has been well received all around, and The Lodger was a Los Angeles Times Book Prize finalist.

UNIQUE GIFT FOR CAT LOVERS: For cat lovers who have all the classic cat humour books, this is something new that’s both unique but familiar, combining a new voice with stunning artwork in a fresh format. For anyone who wonders what their cat is thinking, this book is pitch-perfect, and the gorgeous artwork and package make it a delightful present.
