KILO and HALF, and The Secret of Taos Hum by A.K. Moftah
For no one in his town has a talent, everything in Kilo’s town is grey, dull, and box-shaped. So even though he’s in sixth grade, Kilo never read a story or heard a song. He never played a sport or ate anything other than Shambaza. But that changes when his father—the town’s joke—accidentally leaps to Earth, copies all human talents and returns to Solimiaow, pretending they are his and; therefore, turns into the town’s idol as his “talents” turn Solimiaow upside down.
Maybe I should’ve started off by telling that Kilo is a kitten, and Solimiaow is a civilized town on a distant planet, inhabited by intelligent cats. Anyhow, the cats don’t live alone; they share their planet with primitive eagles, who isolate themselves atop a mountain, having an unwritten complete-ignoring pact with the stuck-up cats. But as the eagles witness Solimiaow turning into that gleeful place, they decide that pacts are made to be broken.
The eagles invade Solimiaow, shoot Kilo's father and capture his mother. And now Kilo has to leap to Earth, evades a detective and her dog and teams up with the most mischievous mouse to secure the only thing that can free his family and his town—a human baby!
But the chances he might find out that his father is not the greatest cat, but just a copycat, might compromise the whole mission.
About The Author...
A.K. Moftah is a complete idiot!
There, I said it.
Or was, to be fair—for he didn’t quite appreciate the role his father played in his life. But after he himself had four children—and is expecting the fifth—that changed 180 degrees. Now, he sees and wants the whole world to see.
And that’s how Kilo and Half, his sixth child, was born.
The screenplay version of this book was nominated for Best Comedy, Best Original Concept and Best Overall Script in the Oaxaca Film Festival, and made Winner for Best Comedy in the Filmmaking International Screenwriting Contest.
When he is not writing or drawing (he drew the cover of this book) or doing engineering stuff at his own company in Egypt, A.K. Moftah studies for his Master's degree or just pulls silly pranks on his wife and kids and laughs at their expressions until his face hurts.
