Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Once there was a kitten, much loved by his family. But the kitten grows up to be a "bad, bad cat". He scratches the table and claws the chair. He rips pillows and messes up the bed. Bad Cat eats plants and yanks up flowers, spills milk and swipes cupcakes. He lives up to his name! After each escapade, his family scolds him. Tired of being reprimanded, Bad Cat runs away. His family looks for him everywhere. They leave the window open with a plate of his favorite treats to tempt him back. They miss him terribly. Then Bad Cat comes home, forgiving them. His family is so glad to see him, they don't care if he is still acting naughty. With its large type, short text, and simple vocabulary, this title is a winner for newly independent readers. True Kelley's "cartoon-y" illustrations provide visual clues and delight the reader with her drawings of the sly-eyed, cupcake-stealing lead character. 2002, Grosset and Dunlap,
