Marcie Colleen

Marcie Colleen event

The Book Catapult proudly welcomes local author Marcie Colleen for her new early reader graphic novel, Kitten Ninja on Thursday, March 7 at 6pm! Marcie will be in conversation with bestselling author Joshua Pruett! This is an all-ages event, but Marcie and Josh will be discussing the craft of comics, collaboration, and the business of books as well.

Fans of comics, and heartwarming stories—not to mention cats!—will love Kitten Ninja, the origin story of the incredible Cat Ninja!

Before Cat Ninja grew up and became Metro City’s greatest defender, he was tiny, adorable Kitten Ninja and he battled... much tinier foes. (Hey, everybody has to start somewhere, right?) In this spin-off prequel to the enormously popular Epic Original Cat Ninja series, our favorite feline hero takes on everything a kitten-size ninja has to battle on the way to his heroic destiny: a sun spot that won’t stay put, an irresistible ball of yarn, and—every cat’s archenemy—snow!

When not bingeing old Twilight Zone episodes, Marcie Colleen is busy writing children's books. She is the author of numerous titles, among them Love, Triangle, Penguinaut!, The Bear's Garden, and the Super Happy Party Bears chapter book series. She lives in San Diego, California. Visit her at

Joshua Pruett is a Primetime Emmy and Annie Award–nominated TV writer, author, and storyboard artist best known for his work on Mystery Science Theater 3000, Phineas and Ferb, and Disney XD’s Milo Murphy’s Law.
