“This colorful book is destined to be a hit with imaginative little ones.” — Allyce Amidon, Foreword Reviews

ON CAT DAD, KING OF THE GOBLINS

Britt Wilson
’s kids friendly cartoon romp Cat Dad, King of the Goblins has been reviewed by The Comics Alternative.

“If Cat Dad, King of the Goblins sounds like a wacky kids’ graphic novel, it’s because that’s just what it is. Britt Wilson (Britt Wilson’s Greatest Book on Earth) has created a fun, colorful romp that kids who might be a little too young for Adventure Time will understand and enjoy.” — Andy Wolverton, The Comics Alternative
