I do like Bad Kitty but this one was the best ones that I have read so far. You should really read this book because the puppy wants to play but Bad Kitty wants to sleep.How do they settle this well you will have to read to find out.

Bad Kitty Does NOT Like DOGS is the story of how Kitty struggles to take his much needed nap. He has to deal with Puppy wanting to play a variety of games including baseball, basketball, soccer, and chess. Kitty decides to try and trick Puppy by suggesting they play “sleep”, a game in which the objective is to see who can take the longest nap. Although Puppy agrees, Kitty’s success is short-lived. Puppy almost immediately admits defeat.

I suppose I would call these true Bad Kitty picture books :-p Nick Bruel has a couple other Bad Kitty picture books that started before the chapter books, but these ones have a very picture book feel to them in feel, illustrations, font, and story.

We read a couple Bad Kitty books over the summer for the summer reading program. But this one just wasn't that great. It was really short (I think intended for a child to read it themselves). I didn't like the depiction of the dog. The story was a little funny though because it's just like a dog, but I hated the illustrations. Not a big fan of this book, unfortunately.

For reasons I'm still not sure of, Dex (6yo) howled with laughter when I read him this book. Maybe it was my inflection or just my cute voices, but... Anyhow, it's a rather common tale about a cat wanting to take a nap but a dog thwarting those plans.

Silly illustrations.

Bad kitty holds a special place in my heart- I had a client who adored these books. They make me smile and think of him. This one made me laugh out loud. My kids will laugh when they hear it.
