About the Book

Nathan W. Pyle’s first picture book in his Strange Planet series, a #1 New York Times bestseller! Now streaming on Apple TV+

Based on his popular Instagram comics, Nathan W. Pyle presents a delightful, heartfelt, and clever picture book that young and old beings alike will enjoy reading together.

When the nearest star rises, Lifegiver has an exciting quest planned for Offspring! Follow along as they observe a strange creature that sneaks, hides, and vibrates around their house. Hilarity ensues as the blue beings try to mimic this talented creature. 

As always, Nathan W. Pyle draws humor from his unique perspective on human activity and delivers a colorful experience that is an ode to cats and humans alike. 

This book is a joy to read and share, no matter how many revolutions you’ve made around the nearest star.

Critical Praise

“Pyle’s signature pink-and-blue comic panels expand to full-page spreads in this clever ode to cats...school-aged children will find it simultaneously absurd and hilarious. A great choice for young readers beginning to explore graphic novels, this is an essential purchase, ready to tickle children and adults alike.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

"The hyperliteral phrases are sure to provoke readers’ laughter…kids might just hone observational skills too [and] surprise their adults with new vocabulary; families who read it together may be inspired to make up their own. Don’t be a stranger to this one." — Kirkus Reviews

“Pyle’s tidy comics style and limited color palette centers the deadpan vocabulary as much as the art, and humor directed at categorizing concepts and building observational skills is an added bonus for young readers. Back matter includes a visual vocabulary aid.” — Publishers Weekly

“Done in the style of his humorous cartoons on social media, Mr. Pyle conjures an alien parent and child with classic sci-fi bald heads and huge eyes. The speech of these beings has a kind of courtly impartiality that makes it extremely funny.” — Wall Street Journal
