A Cat named Haiku is a 40 page graphic novel produced by Arcana Studio. Haiku is your typical cat, one who lives for getting in trouble and defying his owner. After a day where he’s especially naughty, he learns that even if people are mad at him, that does not mean he is not loved by them.
The graphic novel is unique because it’s told completely in haiku, the 3 line, 17 syllable poetry of Japan. The visual style takes cues from traditional Japanese drawings, the backgrounds look like aged paper, and the pages are not crowded.
Series creator Mark Poulton says that of all the projects he’s worked on, A Cat Named Haiku remains his favorite.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to work on several exciting projects during my comic career, but A Cat Named Haiku remains my favorite. I love how engaged children are by the book and thank to the new app by Arcana Studio, the level of involvement is even greater. My two-year old can’t get enough of the puzzles and games and finds the page by page animation of the story very entertaining.”
On September 4th, Arcana Studio released the Cat Named Haiku app on the iTunes webstore. It is an engaging product that appeals to children up to age 10, as well as cat lovers of all ages. In addition to its uniquely animated story, each page has plenty of puzzles to challenge and engage your child. For 0.99, it provides more entertainment than its low price would show.
