Klawde: Evil Alien Warlord Cat: Emperor of the Universe #5 (Kobo eBook)
**"Applaud for KLAWDE. Two paws up!"--Dav Pilkey, creator of the Dog Man series.
"Funny, savage, and brilliant, Klawde is the pet I wish I had."--Max Brallier, New York Times Bestselling author of The Last Kids on Earth.
Klawde is not your basic cat. He's an emperor from another planet, exiled to Earth. He's cruel. He's cunning. He's brilliant... and he's also Raj Banerjee's best friend.**
In book five of the Klawde series, our malevolent feline warlord has absolutely had it with this dismal planet. What's the point in conquering such an insignificant corner of the galaxy? In fact, why settle for just one planet, when there's an entire universe to rule? Luckily for Klawde, the Emperor of the Universe has stepped down, and there is an election being held to fill this coveted position. Finally, the universe is open for the taking. But Klawde encounters a challenge he never considered before: democracy.
So with Barx and Raj by his side, Klawde begins the campaign of his life. Can he win enough hearts and minds to become... Emperor of the Universe?
Heavily illustrated, with a hilarious, biting voice that switches between Raj's and Klawde's perspectives, this is the story of an unlikely friendship that emerges between a boy and the evil cat who arrived on his doorstep.
Illegal is a poignantly moving story with a rich cast of characters, deeply relevant storylines, and rich with the deepest human kindness and endurance. Not without touches of levity and joy, but emotionally impactful where its important, we follow a young boy on his search for his brother, trying desperately to keep his family together when it seems the world is set on tearing him and his siblings apart in the search for a better life. Heartbreaking and hopeful, this story about the journey of an illegal immigrant hits fast and hard, with severe social importance at this time in our world. - Isabel
