    One thought on “A Cat Named Tim and Other Stories

    1. Kristina Jean Lareau

      This wordless picturebook-graphic novel hybrid details vignettes of a slew of animal characters. They are amusing and entertaining, though do not really offer an overarching narrative. At times it feels as the Martz is just displaying a graphically designed icon set in action rather than actually telling a story. Yet, the illustrations redeem this lack of plot with its quirky mini-stories.3.5 Stars

    2. Katie

      Children's graphic novel. It took me about 5 minutes to read, and no real story to any of the chapters.No words - just the odd comment. The order the pictures went in was not always clear.Who would like this? I really don't know. Overall - weird, could be in the running for worst book of the year. Or more like dumbest.

    3. David Schaafsma

      Koyama Press production by Toronto-based Martz, who does a variety of things. This is sort of children's/all ages illustrated stories of various animals, not a continuous narrative. Not as engaging as I had hoped, but quirky in the Koyama Press way, with an odd sense of humor you don't associate with picture books, usually.

    4. Rebecca

      This mostly wordless picture book is not for toddlers, but for the child who likes to sit and study the illustrations. And the illustrations are worth studying--cute, funny, silly and imaginative.

    5. Cathy Austin

      What a great book!!!Charming stories without words. Yes. Full-colour illustrations move the characters and stories happily forward. In the first story we go with Doug, who's a duck, kind of, and Mouse, who is a mouse, on a trip in a two seater old timey plane that takes them on adventures through many seasons, activities, countries, some peril, solutions to peril, fun, a shipwreck that leads them to meet up with Tim. Clever pages jam packed full of stuff for kids to verbalize a story about. Just [...]

    6. Megan Marvel

      Super quirky, but after reading A Cat Named Tim and Other Stories, I really enjoyed it. I had to smile a few times at the absurdity or the sad things happening to the characters. This is a wordless series of humorous comics.

    7. Francis Thibeault

      J'ai trouvé l'album trop hasardeux et peu intuitif à lire Bien que les personnages soient attachants

    8. Lindsey LaMonica

      This wordless graphic novel is wonderful! It's closes in an four different stories. There's the duck and mouse who love to fly around and do crazy things together. Then you meet Tim who is very athletic and artsy. Connie has a busy day and throws a party but ends up floating like a balloon. Then my favorite of the four, Mr. and Mrs. Hamhock, who seem like they could wait months at the bus stop, randomly remember they may have left the oven on and end up back at the bus stop. The illustrations in [...]

      Practically all of the books I've read with no (or very few) words are excellent, and this book follows the trend. It's effectively a book of short stories that are clever and occasionally ironic.The book is excellent for pre-readers because it has so few words. For the most part they follow along perfectly well by themselves. My three year old and six year old love the stories and think they're hilarious.

    10. Jason

      A mostly wordless collection of stories which feel a little more like comic strips featuring various characters on various adventures, whether they be day-to-day routines or canoe trips or birthday parties. A real variety show of a book, with beginning reader, picture book, and comic book elements. I'm not sure how to get it to its audience, though.

    11. Emilia P

      A playful bouncy fun book of animal stories, set in a fun little animal world. Very kid-friendly without being stupid -- mostly wordless, not too cutesy, and nice and energetic. Didn't bowl me over, but an enjoyable time to spend with a happy cat and his friends. Can't complain

    12. Kate

      pretty cute, definitely for older kids if you want them to follow what's going on - not that there's really a story in any of these stories. The illustrations are super adorable though, I could see my kid self poring over each page to get all the little details.

    13. Amanda

      Made me laugh out loud. Loved the spare, graphic style of the illustrations. Very clever. Loved how the characters came in and out of each others' stories.

    14. Kendra

      Ha! Very cute. I especially loved Connie's section. Wouldn't we all love to occasionally just be carried through all the tasks of our day on a sort of conveyor belt?

    15. Brindi Michele

      this wordless book would be great for my turning pages programe kids could write a story to go with the illustrations.

    16. Scott Robins

      A fantastic collection of wordless comics with a 'look and find' feel to them. Artwork is fantastic, with appealing characters and tons of silly details on each page for kids to pore over.
