    1. The good news is the cat can speak The bad news is he only tells lies Well, the second part is wrong, but he is one argumentative puss He argues theology with the rabbi, and makes fun of the man s students, going so far as to follow one young man to see if he frequents a whorehouse.Cat and rabbi make a great comic duo Observe this exchange where cat is reading aloud to the rabbi Cat Because if you want I can look for a fable with only kosher animals Rabbi Ah Shut up and read Cat Do you want me t [...]

    2. This has been on my wishlist for ages because the promise of representing practicing Jewish characters in the graphic novel format by an ownvoices author sounded just like my kind of thing.Set in Algeria in the 1930s, a cat belonging to a widowed rabbi and his beautiful daughter, Zlabya, eats the family parrot and gains the ability to speak To his master s consternation, the cat immediately begins to tell lies the first being that he didn t eat the parrot The rabbi vows to educate him in the way [...]

    3. Sfar Rabbis Daughter Licensed under Fair use via enpedia wiki File SfaThe Rabbi s Cat, by French artist and writer Joann Sfar is a graphic novel set in Algeria in the 1930s.Despite how his name sounds in English, the author isn t a woman It s Joann as in Johann John Here he is with the model for his fictional cat Approaching this review, all I could think of at first was cat puns The Cat cher in the Rye The cat without which there is nothing A feline of valor although this is a male cat, an un n [...]

    4. One of the most beautiful comics I ve ever read And one of the smartest books I ve encountered.I was really sad when I finished it And I really hope I could find the second volume in English.

    5. The children are all very loving They succeed in everything they do, they bring me great satisfaction Baruch HaShem Bless you Ah, I love me a classic Jewish gag like that Le Chat du Rabbin is a clever and very charming BD about Algiers s Jewish community in the 1930s, narrated by the titular feline, who early on in the book eats a parrot and gains the ability to talk He immediately demands a bar mitzvah but as you d perhaps expect from a cat, he turns out to be a skeptic at heart So we start at [...]

    6. This is an American compliation and translation of three related French graphic novel tales about the life of a Sephardic Algerian rabbi s cat in colonial Algeria round about the 1930s The first of the three stories was my favorite, as the cat gains the power of speech after devouring a pet parrot and proceeds to argue theology and philosophy, requesting a Bar Mitzvah while also questioning the existence of God The second story is an adaption of a classic French fable by Fontaine and includes a [...]

    7. A widowed rabbi, his cat and his daughter live in Algeria spin a story and lesson in Judaism very cleverly crafted in this graphic novel Through the cat, who having eaten the family parrot, is imparted a miraculous ability to speak, questions and challenges to the Jewish faith are presented to the rabbi and the rabbi s rabbi First the cat lies about eating the parrot, and then he insists on learning the Kabbalah and wants a Bar Mitzvah The rabbi s daughter gets married to a French rabbi and they [...]

    8. This is the third or fourth Sfar book I ve read and I loved every panel and every word of it LOVED it He really uses his quirky sense of humor to very human effect here, whereas in Vampire in Love or The Professor s Daughter things were a bit zany fun, but harder to love The story of an Algerian rabbi, his lovely daughter, and their witty, loving, maniacal, scheming cat as narrated by the cat is so winning, I can t even explain it You just have to read it.

    9. Using the premise of What if my cat could observe humanity with an intelligent, humanlike brain What, then, would he think of Judaism, belief, Jewish law and practice, the interaction of Jews and Arabs, of men and women, and people in general , the author shows us several events from the life of a family of Sephardic Jews in historical French Northern Africa It s half story, half philosophy which is a very Jewish way to tell a story and sometimes the point is to show both sides of an argument by [...]

    10. Joann Sfar s writing is so human it is absolutely mesmerizing Every character is successfully fleshed out and everyone is frolicking and cavorting with each other on the pages Sfar builds a world where individuals are solitary by means of their relationships, so we learn how, even within a family, the idea of unity is complex than certain Our main character, the rabbi, master of our cat narrator, is a pious, and at times childish, buffoon We learn to love him and and pity him and relate to his [...]

    11. I don t even know how to describe this book, but I loved it Jewish mysticism, Algiers in the 1930 s, a sometimes talking cat it s a weird mash up but it works beautifully Gorgeous drawings and no cliches to be found.

    12. A peculiar, instantly engrossing graphic novel by Joann Sfar, an author who is new to me and who I was surprised to find when I got to the about the author page, is a man, despite having what seems to be a woman s name I was very impressed by the author s knowledge of Jewish ritual and custom, but even impressed by the unobtrusive way that he works it into the story The story is both sad and funny in the best way.One thing I find interesting about the structure of the story is the way one chara [...]

    13. The Rabbi s cat gains the power to talk by ingestion of parrot and is no longer allowed to spend time with the Rabbi s daughter, whom he loves, because he is a bad influence He asks to be bar mitzvahed so that he can be with her, and a delightful discussion ensues.I loved the first story in this book In fact, I might have to go back and steal it from John s so I can read it again whenever I want The two stories that followed were great as well, but the first story made me fall in love with this [...]

    14. A delicious book with a talking cat that argues philosophically with his master, an adorable old rabbi and his beautiful daughter This book couldn t have gone wrong Whilst reading it, I felt like I was walking through medieval Algeria with all its foibles and mannerisms The book is not the least bit preachy, but you end up thinking deeply about religion and culture Now that is some good writing and not to mention the evocative artwork It feels a bit like the Aladdin set up when you look at the a [...]

    15. Set in 1920 s Algeria and France, The Rabbi s Cat is an homage to author Joann Sfar family s history The tale of how a young married couple blends Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jewish heritages makes for a very engaging graphic novel Bonus points for the discussion of Maimonides The Guide for the Perplexed.

    16. The beautiful and breezy style of the author has completely floored me, He brings a lot of cultural aspects of Algerian jews to light which makes it a page turner, the character of the cat is hilarious and profound at the same time His message is put across so light heartedly but sticks with you.

    17. Interesting story, gorgeous drawings both totally undermined by misogyny and empty, objectified female characters.

    18. Oh this is a delight The Rabbi s Cat is about a cat who lives with a Rabbi and his daughter in Northern Africa Algeria One day, the cat gains the ability to speak totally not after eating a parrot of course , and then he wants to convert to Judaism so the rabbi will let him spend time with the daughter What follows are some interesting conversations about religion and faith as understood through the delightfully snarky eyes of a cat It s a thought provoking tome, plus it stars a cat so it gets b [...]

    19. In one sense, The Rabbi s Cat seems to represent a basic interpretation of Ayn Rand s philosophy of Objectivism And in others, it light heartedly recreates the Jewish Algeria of the 1930s The characters of The Rabbi, The Rabbi s Daughter, and The Rabbi s Cat display multi faceted prisms of their own personalities and the entire story is narrated through the eyes of a seven year old cat.In its original French format, The Rabbi s Cat is a series of three out of five comic books detailing the growt [...]

    20. In this delightful and uproariously funny parable set in Algeria in the 1930s, the rabbi s cat, a conniving, profane cat who appears to be a blue Abyssinian, devours a garrulous parrot, thereby acquiring the bird s power of speech The clever but prevaricating cat immediately launches into a campaign to get himself a Bar Mitzvah despite the opposition of both the rabbi and the rabbi s rabbi Eventually, the rabbi relents due to the intervention of the rabbi s beautiful daughter, Zlabya to whom bot [...]

    21. Direi che son 2,5 stelline.Questa un antologia che raccoglie i primi tre volumi della serie La prima parte, quella in cui il gatto effettivamente parla, stata la pi pesante da leggere Tanta filosofia e tanto ebraismo E lo stile di narrazione contribuisce alla noia infatti, tutto raccontata dal gatto che riporta le parole degli altri protagonisti Nella prima parte, il gatto dopo aver mangiato un pappagallino acquista la capacit di parlare E comincia a disquisire di religione con il rabbino, che i [...]

    22. Last month, I reviewed Sfar s collection of four stories in one graphic novel called Vampire Loves I was amused by the simplicity of the storytelling, a delightful feature of European books I don t often see in American graphic novels The Rabbi s Cat was much, much better, and I m sad to say that my copy is from the library The story is set in Algeria in the 1930s and follows a cat that lives with his owners, a rabbi his Master and the rabbi s daughter his Mistress.While I loved the story of Fer [...]

    23. An extremely quirky graphic novel by the French comic book artist Joann Sfar I d never heard of this guy but supposedly he s pretty hot shit over in Europe Sfar is considered one of the most important artists of the new wave of Franco Belgian comics It s hard to be completely sure but I think The Rabbi s Cat takes place at the turn of the century, in Israel As the title suggests, it follows the adventures of a rabbi and his cat, a rather scrappy fellow who has no qualms about killing and eating [...]

    24. I should really say 3.5 stars, because my enjoyment waned as the story started ending without much of a change in the pace or raising of the stakes, and because there was no real wrapping up or sense of conclusion to the conflicts presented in the story Idk It was just a little bit of a fizzle at the end.But I really loved about the first half The art is bizarre and weird kind of like Pink Panther cartoons, almost and I loved the cat s devilish little expressions A lot of artists seem uneven or [...]

    25. If you have an interest in graphic novels, I d suggest you skip reading any reviews and simply locate this book and plunge in Part of the fun of reading this comes from figuring out time and place and from finding out things about the characters Every review I glanced at gave away much of that.What I ll say is this There s a good deal of cultural atmosphere in the story, much of it related to Judaism, and there s a lot of fun in the plot developments as well as in the graphical style The cat, fo [...]

    27. I saw the animated movie first and loved it, so when I found the book at my local library I couldn t wait to read it I wasn t disappointed Funny, poignant, clever and charming, plus a bit of Jewish education from a talking cat I found myself deliberately slowing down to savor the graphics and make it take longer to finish I may be forced to actually buy the sequel The Rabbi s Cat 2 since my library doesn t have it.
