About the Books & Authors:

britt-catCat Dad, King of the Goblins
Miri and Luey have a dilemma. Their dad’s been turned into a cat and their closet is a garden full of goblins. There is only one thing for them to do — grab their friend Phil the frog and dive headfirst into a wild, woolly and wacky adventure.

Britt Wilson grew up in Brampton, Ontario. She attended both OCAD and Sheridan College, eventually graduating from Sheridan with a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Illustration. Wilson published her first book Britt Wilson’s Greatest Book on Earth, a collection of her mini-comics, with Conundrum Press in 2012. She now lives in Toronto, Ontario with her husband and white cat.

In Tim’s world, a cat can paint on the ceiling and a happy pig couple can wait months for the bus. A duck and a mouse love to go flying, in a plane, of course. Every page is an adventure and each character is colorful in this collection of comics.
