Bad Kitty really needs a bath, and she is forced to take one in this hysterical new illustrated how-to for young readers. The following are some items you will need for Kitty’s bath: one bathtub, plenty of water, dry towels, a suit of armor, a letter to your loved ones, clean underwear (because stressful situations can cause “accidents”), an ambulance in your driveway with the engine running, and, oh, yeah, you’ll also need Kitty . . . but good luck with that! Kitty is at her worst in this riotous how-to guide filled with bad smells, cautionary tales of horror, and hopefully by the end . . . some soap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for young readers! My daughter received this for her 7th birthday and she can't put it down!  It's not a hard read but it's good practice for her.  She loved the illustrations and thought it was hilarious.  She reads it to anyone who will listen.  We've since bought another book in the Bad Kitty series and have more on our wishlist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad Kitty Gets a Bath What an amazingly talented author and illustrator! My daughter, who absolutely hates reading, couldn't put this book down. The story was silly, funny and informative. My daughter not onlly enjoyed the plot, but she also learned interesting facts about cats. When she finished this one, she asked me to buy her another book by Nick Brunel.

CHAPTER TWO
FINDING KITTY
Now’s the hard part.
The bath is ready, but Kitty is not. In fact, Kitty is nowhere to be found.
Is she in her litter box?
Is she under the sofa?*
Is she sitting on her favorite window ledge?
Is she sitting in her favorite chair?
Is she lying in your bed?
So where is Kitty?
Kitty’s very good at hiding. So maybe the best step right now would be to think about where you found her all the other times she hid.
This is where she was hiding when you had to take her to the vet.*
This is where she was hiding when you had to brush her teeth.
This is where she was hiding when you had to give her medicine.
This is where she was hiding when you had to clip her nails.
This is where she was hiding when you told her to finish her vegetables.*
There’s Puppy!
Maybe Puppy knows where Kitty is hiding.
Hey, Puppy . . . Do you know where Kitty is hiding?
Hmmm . . . Maybe he doesn’t know.
Hold on . . . Since when does Puppy have black fur? Puppy has never had black fur. So maybe that isn’t Puppy at all. So who is it really? Hmmm . . .
IT’S KITTY IN DISGUISE! GET HER!
SHE’S RUNNING INTO THE LIVING ROOM! GET HER!
