ALA Booklist
%% This is a multi-book review. SEE the title Kat Kong for next imprint and review text. %% (Reviewed Sept. 1, 1993)
Horn Book
Kat Kong is captured by mice and brought to Mousopolis, where he escapes with a beautiful mouse hostage; the dreadful Dogzilla is repelled by a mouse army. Photographic collages of real mice, an overweight house cat, and a sweet-looking corgi are retouched with acrylic paint. Featuring plenty of puns and sly details, Pilkey's spoofs of monster movies are welcome reissues. [Review covers these titles: Dogzilla and Kat Kong.]
Publishers Weekly
From the creator of Captain Underpants comes the hilarious Dogzilla and Kat Kong by Dav Pilkey, first published in 1993 and featuring a wacky mix of animal photos, art and a deadpan Sam Spade-style narrative. The first title begins, """"It was summertime in the city of Mousopolis,"""" as the dreadful Dogzilla terrorizes the mice with her horrible dog breath. In the second, Doctor Varmint and Rosie Rodent capture the mighty Kat Kong and bring him to Mousopolis, where he breaks free and tears through the streets.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-The furry residents of Mousopolis are twice terrorized by overgrown house pets in these daffy picturebooks ``Written and directed'' by the author of When Cats Dream (Orchard, 1992). Dogzilla rises from a volcano to break up the First Annual Mousopolis Barbecue Cook-Off, and scatter the Big Cheese's troops with her fearsome doggy breath-but the threat of a bath sends her scurrying back to her mountain. On the other hand, or paw, Dr. Vincent Varmint and his lovely assistant Rosie Rodent capture giant Kat Kong on an uncharted island and return to civilization, only to have the ferocious feline escape, create chaos in the streets, climb the tall Romano Inn, and take that long fall. Illustrations are painted in bright acrylics around cleverly trimmed and placed photographs of Pilkey's pet mice, cat, and corgi, for a wonderfully silly look, appropriately accompanied by a pun-laden text. Less elaborate, but much funnier and more creative than William Wegman's Cinderella (Hyperion, 1993).-John Peters, New York Public Library
