Synopsis

Why do adults have children? Ziggie thinks he has found the answer: they do it so that have someone to blame for everything. But if the adults are not completely heartless, they choose to have more than one child, so the children can blame each others – also known as “sibling love”. Unfortunately, Ziggie’s parents only had him, so he has to put up with all kinds of more or less unreasonable accusations.

He is therefore exceedingly happy when he gets a cat. Because cats are not able to tell on you and CutiepieRonaldo is the obvious scape goat for all the things that Ziggie would otherwise bear the brunt for alone.

However, when CutiepieRonaldo one day mistakes Ziggie's bed for the cat tray, it becomes the kick-off for a war on life and death between Ziggie and Shitty Kitty – CutiepieRonaldo’s new nick name.

Shitty Kitty is not prepared to forgive Ziggie for all the unreasonable accusions and with the help from the other pets in the neighbourhood - the conflict shy fighting dog, Killer Karen; the incredibly gluttonous, Peter Pug, and the deceased, Ooze Mouse – Shitty Kitty starts a bloody revenge plan which will do Ziggie in, once and for all.

The graphic novel, SHITTY KITTY: REVENGE IS SWEET AND REEKS OF FISH is a crazily funny tale about a teenager and his cunning cat caught in an eternal rivalry.

Winner of The Best Graphic Novel of the Year Award by The Copenhagen Libraries.

Reviews

"Exceptionally well-suited to hilariously funny read-aloud moments with small children, but will also work as a laugh-out-loud reading experience for grown-ups." – (The Literature Page (Litteratursiden))

"Damn, it's a good book! Unpretentious and funny. My daughter is well-covered in terms of read-aloud book moments. She rates Shitty Kitty highly." – (Serieland (online comic book review platform))

"Super entertaining, a bit grotesque and a tad disguisting graphic novel about friendship, loyalty, revenge and first love. It mixes ordinary comic book pages with pages that combine text and suitable illustrations. The artwork style is rough but it fits well with the way the story is told." – (Library review (Lektørudtalelse))
