Editorial Reviews

"It's Bad Kitty's unapologetic, curmudgeon nature that delivers the laugh-out-loud funny." -Publishers Weekly"Just plain hysterical. . . . Fun for all, especially fans." -Kirkus Reviews"[A] mix of wry story and high-impact cartoon-style art." -Booklist"Bad Kitty is back for another adventure, and children who have met this cantankerous feline in her previous outings know that a typical birthday celebration just won't do. . . . 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
