    1. The only reason I decided to pick this off the pile of books from the library is because none of my kid readers would get the reference to the title of the Coppola movie, and they wouldn't (don't, upon notification) care. I picked it up and thought ha, clever. A bit. The reason you are still reading this review is because of the title, right? A groaner, but you know, Coppola!This I learn is a sequel to Apocalypse Bow Bow (what follows, Cow Cow? Sow Sow?), which I am not going to go out of my way [...]

    2. Note: I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I had a good laugh reading this comic and would definitely read the other books in the same series.The book started brilliantly and I adored all the dogs and the cat (meow.) I really enjoyed the quirkiness and the cuteness of the plot and the characters. I absolutely loved the whole thing about the "Twonkies" (with a capital T) and the nude dude. It's a funny book and that's what I was expecting from it, so it de [...]

    3. My what a bizarre book. To me it really just felt like a weird dream that someone wrote down and had illustrated. While it was cute in a quirky way, it just didn't feel unique or insightful, or even hilarious. Although there is a naked dude in it, he is pictured in such a way that everything is hidden and it is just used for incongruity. The storyline follows a bunch of pets who have been separated from their owners because of the naked man's 'time machine" and sent to an alternate dimension. Th [...]

    4. Apocalypse Meow Meow is a ridiculous, fun-filled adventure–that takes place after the apocalypse. All humans have disappeared from Earth and only the pets are left, which means they’re just waiting to get into wild adventures. And although they do have apocalyptic problems–such as missing their people and running out of food–the authors make sure things stay silly. As the pets go on a quest to eat all the Twonkies they could possibly want from the abandoned Twonkie factory, it is easy to [...]

    5. This was a very cute graphic novel and a the second of the series. Even though it is cute and just a story about some animals trying to survive after a apocalypse there is more to the story if you look for it. In this book the dogs need to beat the large kitty to win the twonkies all for themselves and their friends. Can the dogs do it by themselves or will they need some help from their friends? This really is a good book and all the animals have such great personalities, the way some of them h [...]

    6. Written in scenes rather than chapters, this graphic novel by a father and son duo continues the Apocalypse series involving Angry Dog, Silly Dog, Cop, Tough Dog, and Kitty Cat. Angry Dog sees that a guy has appeared, even though it isn’t “our guy” as Silly dog calls him. On their search to find the guy, they find Rat who leads them to a Twonkies Factory with enough food to quench their hungry selves. But--something is in their way in the Factory. Will Angry Dog be successful? Will they co [...]

    7. I got this book as an e-arc through NetGalley, so any formatting opinions are self-redacted.First, the drawings: they were cute without being too childish, and fit the tone of the story well.The story: was really adorable and I can see grade school readers loving this series. The ending felt a little cut off though, like this originally was a longer piece that got chopped in half. Although, for the second in a series, you'd never know it. It reads like the first of a series and there's a thing t [...]

    8. I am not a cat person and thought I would hate this sequel to Apocalypse Bow Wow. Yet, it was just as funny as the first, offered a clever continuation of the story, and is a nice companion to Bow Wow. I would read them together. The lack of color in these books I feel hurts the design and the overall enjoyment as while entertaining, they are a bit bland.

    9. A big thank you to NetGalley for an e-copy of this book!!!Once again, James Proimos III has written a cute, funny graphic novel. I laughed out loud! When there is a "Boom", I laughed every time. The kids are going to love this! I cannot wait to read the next in the seriesI wonder what the title will be???

    10. Funny graphic novel with a terrific ending. Models perseverance and creative problem-solving. Quick read. Good for animal lovers and comics enthusiasts. Even the most reluctant readers will enjoy this book, and feel a sense of accomplishment because they can complete it. Sequel to Apocalypse Bow Wow.

    11. Silly and cute graphic novel about a group of pets out to save the world (and eat some snack cakes). Apparently the second book in a series, although I understood what was going on just fine without even knowing there was a first book! For kids who like captain underpants and the like.

    12. I won this book in a giveawayally cute little book! hoping my grandkids will enjoy it as much as I did!

    13. Another cute tale of a group of dogs, a cat, and a rat surviving an apocalypse. I just hope there is another book. I felt the end left the reader wanting more.

    14. I received a copy of this book from Bloomsbury USA Children's Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    15. Disappointing. Doesn't really build on the previous book, laughs are few and far between, features a lame Terminator reference that's never explored and has a completely abrupt ending.
