'The irrepressible Pilkey strikes again with a spoof of the famous film, enacted by a real cat and some mice in color photo images imposed on background paintings.Artfully designed, colorful, and funny--especially for those who know King Kong.'--Kirkus Reviews

Horn Book Review

Kat Kong is captured by mice and brought to Mousopolis, where he escapes with a beautiful mouse hostage; the dreadful Dogzilla, attracted to the city by the smell of food, is repelled by the mouse army. Photographic collages of real mice, an overweight house cat, and a sweet-looking corgi are retouched with acrylic paint. The howlingly funny spoofs of monster movies feature plenty of puns and sly details for children and adults. From HORN BOOK 1993, (c) Copyright 2010.
