Summary
"Applaud for KLAWDE. Two paws up!"--Dav Pilkey, creator of the Dog Man series.

"Funny, savage, and brilliant, Klawde is the pet I wish I had."--Max Brallier, author of the New York Times Best Seller The Last Kids on Earth

Klawde is not your average cat. He's an emperor from another planet, exiled to Earth. He's cruel. He's cunning. He's brilliant... and he's about to become Raj Banerjee's best friend. Whether he likes it or not.

Klawde had everything. Sharp claws. Fine fur. And, being the High Commander of the planet Lyttyrboks, an entire world of warlike cats at his command. But when he is stripped of his feline throne, he is sentenced to the worst possible punishment: exile to a small planet in a quiet corner of the universe... named Earth.

Raj had everything. A cool apartment in Brooklyn. Three friends who lived in his building. And pizza and comics within walking distance. But when his mom gets a job in Elba, Oregon, and he is forced to move, all of that changes. It's now the beginning of summer, he has no friends, and because of his mother's urgings, he has joined a nature camp .

It's only when his doorbell rings and he meets a furball of a cat that Raj begins to think maybe his luck is turning around...

Heavily illustrated, with a hilarious, biting voice that switches between Raj and Klawde's perspectives, this is the story of an unlikely friendship that emerges as two fish out of water begin to find their footing in strange new worlds.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Lord High Emperor Wyss-Kuzz of the planet Lyttyrboks has been sent into exile on Earth. Upon landing, he seeks shelter in the home of a small ogre called Raj, who also feels misplaced as his family moved from New York to Oregon. Forced to attend a survival camp, he agrees to go if he is allowed to keep Wyss-Kuzz, now named Klawde. Klawde soon mind-melds with Raj so he can speak English, and explains that he desperately misses home and needs Raj's opposable thumbs to help build a teleportation device. As they work together, Klawde decides to let Raj come with him because Raj would make a great one-man giant army for his reconquering plan! When Raj's camp Survival Night goes horribly wrong and he calls on Klawde for help, Klawde rushes to his aid. Will Klawde return home or will he choose to stay with his new family? With cute illustrations, hilarious misunderstandings, and pun-filled names, readers of all ages will claw their way to the second book (published simultaneously).--Lindsey Tomsu Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "For generations, the highly evolved planet of Lyttyrboks exiled its criminals to "a vast wasteland of a planet, inhabited by a race of carnivorous ogres" before outlawing the practice as cruel. But former Lord High Emperor Wyss-Kuzz's crimes are so dastardly that they resurrect the practice and send Wyss-Kuzz to Earth. He lands in a small Oregon town and heads to the nearest house, where he is taken in by Raj, who has just moved from Brooklyn's wealth of pizza, candy, and comics. Raj is miserable, and adopting the cat-whom they name Klawde-helps. Chapters alternate between Klawde, who is hard at work creating a device to return to Lyttyrboks and exact his revenge, and Raj, who is attending a nature camp led by an antitechnology survivalist counselor. Klawde learns English so the two can communicate, and while he does his best to disdain his humans, he may just come to care for them. Klawde's ruthless attitude captures feline haughtiness in humorous moments ("I had vaporized ambassadors and kings for lesser insults"), while the escalating camp adventures entertain. Dynamic illustrations capture the energy, humor, and heart of this strong series kick-off. Also available: Klawde: Evil Alien Warlord Cat: Enemies. Ages 10-up. (Feb.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
