What it feels like, what it tastes like, if you would look cool if you smoked too. Cool KAT Kitty is here to share the real-deal about smoking and tobacco. What it is, and what it isn't.This entertaining and educational book explores the mindset of kids and why they might be tempted to smoke. It goes beyond the typical "smoking is bad for you" message, and looks at how peer pressure, media influence, and marketing tactics by tobacco companies are all designed to make tobacco products attractive to kids.
