'Bruno: Some of the More Interesting Days in My Life So Far' by Catharina Valckx with illustrations by Nicolas Hubesch is a series of short stories about days in the life of a smart aleck cat named Bruno who wears a checkered cap.
The chapters are named after days, like A Peculiar Day, or A Stupid Day or An Almost Perfect Day. In one story Bruno meets a fish named Bup who is flying in the air. He follows the fish to see where he will go. In another story, it's a rainy day, so Bruno has unexpected guests. The final story was my favorite. Bruno imagines his perfect day, which includes finding a treasure to give to a poor family and having ice cream with his friends. Then he comes very close to having it.
The illustrations are detailed and very fun. The animal characters have unique styles. I like Bruno's older friend Ringo who wears glasses and a yellow necktie. There's a wolf character named Dreadful Gerard who shows up in one story, and he is rude, but his name still made me laugh. This might be a bit long to read all in one sitting, but the stories are whimsical and fun.
