This hilarious book will hook kids new to reading chapter books with its goofy humor and exaggerated illustrations. It’s Bad Kitty’s birthday, and she’s hoping for a really special birthday gift. All of the neighborhood cats come: Chatty Kitty, Strange Kitty, Twin Kitties and Stinky Kitty. But someone keeps sneaking away with the presents after they’ve been unwrapped! Bad Kitty reminds me of Garfield the Cat and Calvin and Hobbes, but this story reads more like a traditional chapter book with lots of illustrations. Bruel balances simple sentences with a fast-paced story that’s perfect for new readers. He’s even thrown in all sorts of nonfiction information in Uncle Murray’s Fun Facts. If you like this book, try other Bad Kitty books in the series — they’ve hooked many reluctant readers who read this again and again!
