The Cat with a Really Big Head [Paperback]

Roman Dirge
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

9 July 2002
Attention Lenore fans: Roman Dirge is back with an all-new storybook-format tale. This time, it's the tragic story of a cat named Cat, and his misfortunes in life due to his enormously over sized head. This digest-size tale (5.5 x 8.5) comes with a glossy card-stock cover with color art on the inside covers as well as outside, and includes an all-new back up story by Dirge, which he says is not as good. You be the judge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great! 17 Aug 2003
Funny little book, this is! Dirge's style is very funny, combining the lugubrious with the adorable. This story isn't much of a challenge, but I really like the drawings. If you like Lenore, you will like this one too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, twisted and tragic. Great! :o) 25 April 2008

I am a big fan of Roman Dirge's work, and his cool name!

This is just a little book, a comic really, with the Cat story and another one "That Isn't So Good" as it says on the cover. The Cat of the main story is insanely cute and very well illustrated in the tradition of modern gothic fairy tales. You will never see a cat quite like it, or hear a tale quite so tragic that will still have you smiling! The other story is short and typically Dirge, being about a little dead girl.

Utterly fantastic! Try it if you like Tim Burton or Jhonen Vasquez! Heartbreakingly cute! May make small children cry....

Roman Dirge does it again in this sick, deformed book. But it's also cute and really a good read!

A story about a cat with, as you may have guessed, a really big head. The story follows his life problems and inner feelings about being deformed.

A good book to quickly read before you go to bed and then have really strange dreams about afterwards!

I love this book! i would say a must have and a cult classic already.
