Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In the past, Bad Kitty has tangled with puppies, adults, birthday festivities, and baths, but she didn't know what trouble is until she meets The Baby. An endearing addition to a popular beginning readers series.

From the Publisher
"Further proof that Bad Kitty can be good…especially in the eyes of her many fans."

Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

In Bad Kitty's return, she attempts to answer one critical question: "What the heck is that thing?"

In the beginning was Kitty. She was alone, and she liked it that way. Dark times arrived with the stinky, leaking, omnipresent Puppy; Kitty reconciled herself to that travesty. But after Kitty and Puppy spend a brief and ill-advised time in the guardianship of Uncle Murray, IT comes home with the humans. It plays, it stinks, it drools; Kitty is sure it's a dog. When all her friends come over for a special round of Pussycat Olympics, they conclude IT is a New Kitty. (A Bad Kitty Screaming Temper Tantrum ensues). Will Bad Kitty have a change of heart once she learns the origins of the family's new arrival? Bruel's fourth long-form tale of Bad Kitty (Bad Kitty vs. Uncle Murray, 2010, etc.) offers his trademark spastic black-and-white illustrations in full-bleed and spots with plenty of baby and cat sounds in dialogue bubbles (translated into English where necessary). Uncle Murray's Fun Facts return with occasional chapters on cat climbing and getting stuck in trees. There is plenty of slapstick, a few silly dream sequences and the obligatory gross bits. An appendix on cat training rounds out Bad Kitty's Baby encounter.

Further proof that Bad Kitty can be good...especially in the eyes of her many fans.(Humor. 6-10)

    Cute chapter book

    I should have read the description, but since we have other Bad Kitty books, I thought this would be a picture book like those. It's a cute book and my daughter will love it in a couple of years when she is ready to move on to chapter books.
