Inspired by the gamebook fad of the late 80s -- You Are a Cat! is both a parody and homage, focusing on a dysfunctional family, but told through the eyes of their cat. Fully a third of the book is lavishly illustrated from the feline first-person floor perspective. The different choices you make affect people and events! Even something as seemingly trivial as whether or not to purr can result in dramatic changes. As the first book in the fictional Pick-a-Plot series, You Are a Cat! includes numerous fake preview advertisements for improbable future titles in the series, like You Are a Cult Leader! You Are Homeless! and You Are Obsessed With Johnny Depp! An amalgam of image and text, art book and graphic novel, this is the complete package from a talented writer and artist. The kittenish & catactular You Are a Cat! is the closest you'll come to being a cat without dying and being reincarnated as one.
