Apocalypse Meow Meow book

The sequel to the wildly popular graphic novel Apocalypse Bow Bow, Meow Meow picks up where the first instalment left off: the humans have vanished off the planet and our heroes, a pack of dogs (one angry, one silly, one a cop, one tough) and a kitty cat are hungry. Suddenly a naked man appears, Terminator-style from the future, proclaiming that if the dogs are still here, then there is hope to fix whatever it is has happened, before running off.

The starving animals go looking for him, and instead find their rt friend who abandoned them in the first book. Rat tells them of a place full of food – the Twonkie factory – guarded only by “a kitty cat”. (Spolier alert – the ‘kitty cat’ is a lion, and the angry dog is no match for him in a duel!)

Hilarious and engaging, Meow Meow is a hit for kids and adults alike, but if I were to posit a fault with the book it’s the flimsiness of the story. With 3-4 panels of drawings by James Proimos Jr per double page, my eight-year-old read the entire book in less than twenty minutes, making it a short – though sweet – treat.
