The Picks:

Kitten Construction Company 1Kitten Construction Company Volume 1 Meet The House Kittens GN – First Second releases a book for the cutest construction workers you’ve ever seen! Being adorable can be a liability in a world where humans and kittens coexist, and you’re a kitten who wants a job in the construction industry. Several talented kittens with skills in architecture, construction, engineering, and plumbing aren’t taken seriously in the workplace because they are just too darn cute, so they form their own, all-feline construction firm. The Kitten Construction Company takes on the job of building the mayor’s mansion, and it’s gonna be the best the city has ever seen! Nothing will stop this kitten crew. Not the City Planner. Not even laser pointers! This volume is filled with adorable kittens and lots of humor, and it’s perfect for a young reader audience.

Valiant HighValiant High TP – Valiant Entertainment takes its superhero universe on a side trip into the All-Ages-verse. Valiant High is a super-powered preparatory academy where power trumps popularity. Amanda “Livewire” McKee and her best friend, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert are sophomores who have to deal with other heroes such as Aric “X-O Manowar” Dacia, a record-setting running back, Colin “Ninjak” King, a debonair foreign exchange student, and Coach Bloodshot, who is a little too into dodgeball. Mysteries and eternal enemies lurk about the school, but there are more important things for the students to deal with, such as passing their driving test and finding a date for Homecoming! Readers unfamiliar with the Valiant Universe can meet all the characters in a common environment, even though they will be different from their in-continuity incarnations. Still, it’s filled with plenty of humor and superhero high school antics that both old and new readers will enjoy.
