Review by pussreboots
I Am Pusheen the Cat by Claire Belton is another webcomic (pusheen.com) to make the transition to print. Pusheen is a round gray cat who in short panel comics offers advice and commentary on popular culture.On the blog many of the Pusheen comics are animated gifs. These gifs circulate beyond the blog, being very popular on Tumblr, and to a lesser degree, Facebook and Twitter.The book goes back to the early days of the blog. Pusheen introduces herself and lays out the basic rules for being a cat, as well as thoughts on why being a cat is cool.Pusheen appeals to cat lovers of all ages, Children who have cats will be attracted to the cat's adorable and simply drawn antics. Older readers can de-stress for half an hour as they read through the book.

I got a copy of this book to review through NetGalley(dot)com. I have read a lot of the Pusheen web comics and enjoyed them, so I was excited to give this book a read. It is an okay book, that is more cutesy than funny.Pusheen reminds of Hello Kitty with a more typical cattitude. This book is broken into different sections: an intro to Pusheen, what you need to know about cats, how to live, intro to Stormy (Pusheen’s younger sibling), and A Year in the Life of Pusheen.This would make a cute little coffee table book...especially for someone who's a fan of the Pusheen blog/webcomic. There is not a ton of content here. I got this for review and breezed through it in maybe 20 minutes. Some of the cartoons will be funny to cat lovers. Some of it is just kind of cutesy.An effort is made to stick with theme of each section of the book. It was okay. I appreciate that they tried to give this book a purpose and organization for the cartoons. However, I think it would have been a better book if they would have just had the cartoons in there and not force them to a chapter theme.I really feel like this could have been a bit more clever and funny. I have seen other Pusheen comics that really make me laugh and there wasn’t a ton of those in this book.Overall this was a cute book but nothing fantastic. It’s one of those books you can lay on the coffee table and someone can pick it up and page through the whole things in 15 minutes and go “Oh, that was kind of cute” and then it will be forgotten. I guess if you are a huge Pusheen fan or cat fan go to the bookstore and give it a look through.

This tells of the adventures of Pusheen the cat as well as tips for cat owners and potential cat owners.This is a quick, cute, hilarious read. The drawings are fun and adorable. Humor filled tag lines adorn and help explain the drawings.Overall, a fun read!
Review by Sarah_Hearts_Books
Pusheen is a cat that likes food, blogging, and sleeping. Her BFF (and little sister) is Stormy who is super fluffy and likes to chase things. I had so much fun hanging with Pusheen and Stormy, that I went online to Pusheen.com and explored the blog where the original animated comics developed. I instantly fell in love; it's such a cute place filled with kitties, happiness, and animated food! If you have children, I'd definitely recommend this book to kids old enough to read (maybe 4+ yo) I shared the book with D, a five year old I babysat today, and he absolutely loved it! He was pretty much giggling the whole time. Cat lovers of all ages would be thrilled to find this book in their stocking on Christmas Day (hint, hint). <b>Many thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this book.</b>
Review by ElizaJane
This is an adorably cute book that Pusheen fans and general cat lovers of ALL ages are going to just love! Funnily enough, I am neither of those, never have heard of Pusheen before and not a cat lover but for some reason I am drawn to cute literary kitties. LOL. This is one page comic strip type art and each page features one comic drawing or a a few (4) related ones. The art is absolutely adorable; you can tell just by the cover. The book is written for the adult fan of the webcomic Pusheen but it will appeal to people as young as toddlers and up to those of an age who can't be bothered with the internet. It is full of pure, clean, delightful, humour that cat owners all over the world will relate to and laugh with. I love this type of simple art as well as it will have children trying to imitate the drawings with pleasant results. If you know a Pusheen fan or someone who has cats instead of children this is the perfect gift for them!
