Grumpy Cat - Garfield

It's the inevitable meeting of the sourpusses! Garfield, the reigning cynical cat of newspapers and TV, crosses paths with Grumpy Cat, the internet sensation whose scowl endeared herself to the world. Can these two inhabit the same comic book mini-series, let alone the same planet? You'll find out in Grumpy Cat/Garfield, and issue 1 is now available on Comics Plus through your library! We'd say it's the cat's meow, but neither of these cats meow.

Recently added PC games include an indie castle-building game (Kingdoms and Castles), an exciting story in the hidden-object genre (Spirit of the Ancient Forest), and a time-management gardening adventure (Gardens Inc: From Rakes to Riches).

Batman Day is September 26—the anniversary of the character's first-ever comic book appearance. Celebrate Gotham City's greatest detective by playing LEGO Batman and LEGO Batman 2 on OnePlay—available through your library!
