Raves & reviews:

Praise for Catwad: It's Me:

"Throughout, humorous prose and bright illustrations by Benton (the Dear, Dumb Diary series) add to the amusement for each tale... younger readers in particular are sure to enjoy Catwad and Blurmp's friendship." — Publishers Weekly

"The full-color comics show the two wildly expressive cats on plain or patterned backgrounds, Catwad with a perpetual frown and Blurmp with a vapid grin... preteens will be onboard immediately and asking for the next volume at the close of this short collection." — Kirkus Reviews
