Word on the Web: What others are saying about The Ninja Kat

Check out these recent reviews from across the web for The Ninja Kat series.

From M.H. Smith of The Pork-Chop Express' review of book one, Velcro: The Ninja Kat:

As a reader, do you every wonder: “gee, why aren’t there any anthropomorphic ninja books to read?” Well I’ve got great news for you THERE’S A SERIES!

I thoroughly loved this book and am excited to read the rest of the series! You should pick this up and give it a read too.

From Allie Adkins of Often Off Topic's review of book one, Velcro: The Ninja Kat:

It’s amazing that Chris fit so much action into a relatively small novel, in fact, the pace never lets up. It’s a blessing and a curse, because I never managed to find a good point to stop, so I burned through the pages much faster than I normally would! The world that Chris has created is fascinating, and the characters all being animals opens up a great opportunity for creativity, which was seized at every opportunity. It’s a serious read, but I chuckled to myself when I read about the hamster’s style of armour, and the Kat’s reaction to bees.

P.S. Chris – your cat is gorgeous!

From Katy Rochelle of Oh So Geeky's review of the first three books in The Ninja Kat series to date:

Velcro: The Ninja Kat series offers thrills, humor, and heart. Widdop's adventure is perfect for readers looking for an enjoyable, short set of books to dive into. He's an engaging writer who comes into his own and improves every book. He has a true keen sense of describing what his characters are doing in bite-sized details. Each installment picks up where the last one ended and takes you on an action-packed, offbeat journey with unique characters. (And has inspired me to get a cat to call Velcro too!).

About the Artist of the Velcro: The Ninja Kat Comic

"I started drawing ever since I was a little boy. I used to just draw random characters, and went through countless sketchbooks. I ended up in the honors art program in my high school, where I learned art was more than drawing, but creating. This series and the author pushed me to go beyond creating characters.

Throughout the years, my passion for cars has grown as well. And now I'm learning how they work, too..."


-Trevor Tee

Trevor Tee has done all of the art for the Velcro: The Ninja Kat comic, as well as the cover art for Velcro: The Green Lion and Velcro: The Masquerade.
