Staff Reviews

An adorable troupe of highly trained builders attempt to take on the most challenging of construction projects—but nobody will let them work because they are cute kittens! Shrewd and understated, this full-color graphic novel captures the kittens’ collective struggle to be taken seriously in a good-natured, amusing way.

Aubrey Restifo

Awww kittens are soooo cute! They are fluffy and adorable and sweet and look so cute in their hardhats! Must post to social media! Never mind that these kittens are carpenters, plumbers and electricians. They can build! They light things up! They can plumb the plumbing! Never mind how cute they are... just take them seriously and you will see what amazing things they can do. Yet, of course, the humans cannot take them seriously (after all, do you take your cat seriously when they “must get red dot”?) On top of everything else, the adorable illustrations help keep the theme and humor humming along. — Jeanette

This early chapter book graphic novel is perfect for fans of Bunjitsu Bunny. A group of kittens can't find jobs in construction, so start their own company. Lots of silly sweetness follows! — Rachel Person


All Marmalade wants to do is build things.

She is, after all, a trained architect.

She’s also a distractingly adorable kitten.

Fed up with not being taken seriously because she's so cute, Marmalade bands together with a handful of other aspiring builders—all of them kittens. But in a world where humans call the shots, can the Kitten Construction Company prove their worth . . . without giving up the very things that make them kittens?

(Don't worry, dear reader, the answer is definitely "yes"!)

About the Author

John Patrick Green is a human with the human job of making books about animals with human jobs, such as Hippopotamister, Kitten Construction Company, and InvestiGators. John is definitely not just a bunch of animals wearing a human suit pretending to have a human job. He is also the artist and co-creator of the graphic novel series Teen Boat!, with writer Dave Roman. John lives in Brooklyn in an apartment that doesn't allow animals other than the ones living in his head.

Praise For…

"Green's graphic novel is…adorable...will keep young readers giggling, and many will identify with Marmalade's plight...A winner of a tale, well-constructed and, dare we say, cute."—Kirkus

"Don’t be fooled by the smiling kittens in construction hats adorning the cover—this lighthearted graphic novel doles out an important message about the dangers of judging by appearances." —School Library Journal
