Horn Book Review

Cats August and Charlie escape from a medical-testing laboratory and together embark on a superhero mission...from inside a robotic dog suit constructed by brains-of-the-operation August and piloted by Charlie. With a cry of "CANINE CONFIGURATION COMMENCE," the cat-heroes take on a despotic baby plotting to conquer Earth. With bright colors, dynamic panels, a wacky sci-fi plot, and lovable animal characters, this graphic novel should engage young readers. (c) Copyright 2019.
