This chapter book is like none other that I have seen. It has a large amount of illustrations that support the text and each are humorous and cartoonish. The colors used in the pictures are black, white and shades of gray. The text varies immensely in size from 12 font to taking up half the page for one word. This variance grabs the readers’ attention and gives the effect the author was trying to create. Each chapter is about 10 pages long which makes it manag ...more

If you kitty likes baths then you should probably have your kitty see a therapist because: Kitty does NOT like baths!
In this book, I learned the proper way to give a kitty a bath. ANd I must admit that I learned something things that I never thought of.
For example: I never thought about dressing up in a suit of armor while administering kitty's bath. Nor had I thought about updating my will. I will remember to do these the next times ...more
Some great facts; how cats normally bathe themselves and how to be careful with the water, but a lot of silliness and crazy going around too (although I've known cats where a suit of armor would have been a great idea!).
No content issues, though kitty's hairball is gross.

Bad Kitty Gets a Bath, by Nick Bruel is a hilarious chapter book with even more hilarious, animated illustrations. Bruel details the "proper" way to bathe a kitty from an unrealistic list of materials to actually locating the furry feline to dealing with the outrageously humorous aftermath in which kitty plots it's revenge.
Through the text, Bruel captivates and engages his readers by continuously using the word "you" as if he is speaking directly to the reader. This helps readers ...more
This was hilarious. Anyone who has ever owned cats will quickly see that Bruel obviously knows cats. This had me laughing out loud several times. I liked how he mixed in actual facts about cats into the story. I know this is marketed as an easy chapter book for the beginning reader cr ...more
