Thanks to NetGalley for these books in exchange for an honest review. I did ask for them so I got myself into this.

I mean this with full offense. All of these books are terrible. The illustrator is NOT getting paid enough because everything looks like terrible photoshop, and they keep reusing the model of the wolf. In Fried Eggs and the Red Gem (Drago Discovers the Importance of Teamwork), they keep reusing the egg drawing and flipping it upside down and pasting it weird places. What!  This is a book you give to a child so you can have twenty minutes to yourself (no judgment, I have done this and I would do it again. Sorry Peppa Pig). I was not impressed by the writing or the illustrations,  The best thing about these books is that the grandmother cat is autistic because she wears the autism symbol (a rainbow infinity sign) on her head (this is presumably unintentional but I like it). If this book was $1 at the dollar store it would be a good buy. Or if my child loved them, I would get them from the library. But I would not intentionally expose a child to these ninja kitties, in order to never have to look at them again. One star. 

Not the demographic at all, but June 7th 2022, when these books publish, should be reserved exclusively for buying and celebrating HELL FOLLOWED WITH US. Link here.
