Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nick Bruel does it again! I just love these Bad Kitty books! But we all know there is no such thing as a bad kitty - only the masters who do not serve them well, making Kitty angry. Nick Bruel really knows cats and proves it in his Bad Kitty books.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not So Great This is a strange book to have ended up in the graphic novels category for the Cybils nominations as I wouldn't really, at first, have considered it a graphic novel. There are no frames or bubbles and the whole story is told by a narrator. However, the book is heavily graphically dependant and without the graphics there are many parts of the story that wouldn't make sense. Hence, I realistically (though grudgingly) can see its place as a graphic novel. I didn't like this book. It's Bad Kitty's birthday. He's so lazy he can't be bothered until he hears there are presents and cake. He has one thing he wants, a $600 super cat scratcher. Each unique guest arrives (the stinky kitty, the pretty kitty, etc.) bringing an appropriate gift but of course no $600 super cat scratcher. It's a lot of pages for a very simplistic plot, but then it's very full of illustrations. Spread through out the book are real life factual spreads about cats which seem to just pop up and while related to the story going on feel like a teacher stepped onto the scene and is giving a little lesson. I won't continue as it's not my practice to only make negative comments. Not recommended.

Editorial Reviews

“The frenetic black-and-white illustrations are just plain hysterical. . . . Fun for all, especially fans.”—Kirkus Reviews

“It’s Bad Kitty’s unapologetic, curmudgeon nature that delivers the laugh-out-loud funny.”—Publishers Weekly

“Bruel’s fast-paced humor is just right for the beginning chapter book set, and the interplay of the text with the comic black-and-white illustrations ratchets up the zaniness level. . . . A frenzied fusion of fiction and nonfiction with plenty of appeal for young readers.”—School Library Journal

Appropriate for ages: 6 - 8
