The votes are in—it's a Bad Kitty landslide!

 

It's time to elect a new president of the Neighborhood Cat Coalition! Who will win the election? The candidate chosen by the kitties on the right side of the street or the candidate chosed by the kitties on the left side of the street? When election time rolls around, one candidate (guess who?) will discover that she never bothered to register to vote and the entire election will be decided by a surprise, last minute absentee ballot sent by Old Kitty.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shirley Nelson
Old Kitty has served two terms as President of the Neighborhood Cat Club. Frustrated at all of the stray cats invading the neighborhood, Kitty decides to run for President. However, Kitty does not follow advice and alienates everyone by misbehaving while campaigning. This very funny book is a great way for young readers to learn about the process of electing a president. Through humorous text and cartoon like illustrations, key elements are explained. Readers will learn about primaries, caucuses, campaign ads, debates, and voting. When Kitty's campaign is just too dirty, Edna Prunelove steps in with a sweet puppy story to protect innocent readers from inappropriate material. Uncle Murray appears occasionally with lists of fun facts about elections. Chatty Kitty informs the reader of interesting presidential cat trivia. The black and white illustrations enable the reader to focus on Kitty's crazy expressions providing a delightful lesson about the political system for young people. The glossary provides witty definitions of political terms. Reviewer: Shirley Nelson
School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Bridging the gap between illustrated chapter book and graphic novel, Bad Kitty returns with a book perfectly timed for the upcoming election season. As usual, she's quite a bit of fun. After two terms, Old Kitty's presidency of the Neighborhood Cat Club is ending. When Bad Kitty learns of the powerful possibilities of the office, she decides to run. The story closely follows the timeline of a real election, including a primary, campaigning, and a debate—all in anticipation of engaging the electorate. Black-and-white cartoon illustrations splash across every page, merging with the text to set a lighthearted mood. There is a surprising amount of detail at times (527 committees for kids, anyone?), with Uncle Murray popping up to provide sections of in-depth facts. While this occasionally slows the pace and may go over some readers' heads, the goofy spirit remains intact. A glossary of election terms is humorously brought to life by the elderly Edna Prunelove. While there is no doubt that Bad Kitty for President will provide some good-old page-turning enjoyment, readers should come away with some election knowledge to boot.—Travis Jonker, Dorr Elementary School, MI
