One of my favorite things about the Sardine in Outer Space
series is Sardine's cat.  (I even
persuaded Mark to put this cat on our business card — that's how awesome I
think he is.)  The cat has the
distinction of closing each Sardine story with, 'the end' (typically the only
words he says) and otherwise rides around on Sardine's head in perfect
contentment looking much like one of those baby Totoro creatures that is
basically a ball with large eyes and ears. 
I want a cat like that!

Here's my favorite thing about Sardine 4: Sardine's cat gets
EVEN BETTER.  Did you think this was
impossible?  Well, Emmanuel Guibert and
Joann Sfar make it happen somehow: as well as being adorable and hat-sitting,
the cat can also FLY!

    The cat has the characteristic of the end of each story with sardines, and at the end is going to happen over the head of sardine in perfect joy look a little like one of those creatures baby Totoro is essentially a ball with eyes large ears.
