Inspired by the gamebook fad of the late 80s -- You Are a Cat! is both a parody and homage, focusing on a dysfunctional family, but told through the eyes of their cat. Fully a third of the book is lavishly illustrated from the feline first-person floor perspective. The different choices you make affect people and events! Even something as seemingly trivial as whether or not to purr can result in dramatic changes. As the first book in the fictional Pick-a-Plot series, You Are a Cat! includes numerous fake preview advertisements for improbable future titles in the series, like You Are a Cult Leader! You Are Homeless! and You Are Obsessed With Johnny Depp! An amalgam of image and text, art book and graphic novel, this is the complete package from a talented writer and artist. The kittenish & catactular You Are a Cat! is the closest you'll come to being a cat without dying and being reincarnated as one.

Sherwin Tjia is a Montreal-based poet, painter and illustrator. He is the author of Gentle Fictions, Pedigree Girls, and The World is a Heartbreaker (a finalist for the A.M. Klein Poetry Award). The Hipless Boy, a collection of short, interconnected stories told in graphic novel form was a finalist for the Doug Wright Award and for four Ignatz Awards. His most recent offering is an interactive adventure style book told from the point of view of a housecat entitled, You Are a Cat! In his spare time, he organizes Slowdance Nights, Love Letter Reading Open Mics, Crowd Karaoke singalongs, and Strip Spelling Bees as Chat Perdu Productions. His invention, The E-Z-Purr, a CD with over an hour of cats purring, is available for download from CD Baby.
