Doctor Varmint and his beautiful assistant, Rosie Rodent, have made - and captured - a stunning scientific discovery: the mighty Kat Kong. But when he breaks free from his shackles and tears through the streets of Mousopolis, there's no stopping his terrifying rampage. Is anyone clever enough to halt this massive meowing menace?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kat Kong When you first open this book , you automatically get a warning: "TS (Terribly Silly - some material may be too silly for grown-ups)." And that is pretty much all that can be said for it. Filled with a mixture of animal pictures and cartoon drawings, it tells the story of Kat Kong, and how Captain Charles Limburger captures him and takes him to Mousopolis. A twist on the classic King Kong - one of the best rewrites of a story I have ever read. (But it's the pictures that really get you.)

Editorial Reviews

The irrepressible Pilkey strikes again with a spoof of the famous film, enacted by a real cat and some mice in color photo images imposed on background paintings. Artfully designed, colorful, and funny - especially for those who know King Kong." - Kirkus Reviews Praise for Kat Kong and Dogzilla: "These two brazenly funny picture books spoof Godzilla and King Kong as they launch the mice inhabitants of Mousopolis against, respectively, a killer cat and dog. . . . Pilkey's irreverent exuberance is irresistible." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "
