26 Jul For Fans of The Oatmeal by Matthew Inman
Written by Ellie A., Adult Services Library Assistant
Cartoonist Matthew Inman has published comics on his popular award-winning humor website, The Oatmeal, since 2009. Every few years, he compiles these comics into books, namely the #1 New York Times best-selling How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You. In honor of International Cat Day (August 8) and International Dog Day (August 26), we’ve compiled a list of his most cat- and dog-centric titles below.

If your cat is kneading you, that’s not a sign of affection. Your cat is actually checking your internal organs for weakness. In this book, Inman offers a hilarious, brilliant collection of comics, facts, and instructional guides about crazy cat behaviors perfect.
Inman imagines, to hilarious effect, what life would be like if his dogs were a couple of old men running around his house in this charmingly absurd book. The result is a pitch-perfect gift for any dog owner.
In this book, Inman discusses the canine penchant for rolling in horse droppings, chasing large animals four times their size, and acting recklessly enthusiastic throughout the entirety of their impulsive, lovable lives. Hilarious and heartfelt, it eloquently illustrates the complicated relationship between man and dog in this ode to man’s best friend.
This book contains a vast wealth of comics about cats, babies, dogs, lasers, selfies, and pigeons, including informative guides. Learn how to comfortably sleep next to your cat, 10 ways to befriend a misanthropic cat, how to hold a baby when you are not used to holding babies, a dog’s guide to walking a human being, and how to cuddle like you mean it.
