Hooo-ray! Meowie Wowie! Glug Glug Glug and Glig Glig Glig! Introducing the first superhero for babies and toddlers! Marrying comic book with board book into a format just the right size to fill a lap, Supercat chronicles the super adventures of Supercat, who flies from his home in the Milky Way to make the world safe for blankies.

With sidekick Super Mouse, Super Phone, Super Milk, and the Cow Who Jumps Over the Moon, Supercat is all set to rescue babies everywhere. Blanket lost? Baby refuses to put on pajamas?? Too many tears to go to bed??? No problem-Supercat knows just what to do. Funny, fast-moving, thoroughly charming, and adorable, Supercat is high entertainment for the youngest audience, and just as much fun for the parents who will be doing the reading. Kate McMullan's sweet story is full of comic-book style, of "Super!" this and "Super!" that, "Oof!" and "Zooooop-zip!" And Pascal Lemaitre's illustration, is inventive, expressive, energetic, and colorful. The collaboration has everything to catch a baby's or toddler's imagination and get parents to fall in love with bedtime reading all over again.
