Bad Kitty likes the turkey at the Thanksgiving meal.
He has a plan to have the turkey all to himself and not share it.
All of his plans go a rye. The mashed potatoes and the string beans fall on his head as he is trying to get the turkey off the table.
Next the turkey falls on poor bad Kitty. He doesn't like turkey, nor does like Thanksgiving.

If you like Bad Kitty you'll love it. If not, you won't. I'm not a fan. ...more

There are so many things that Bad Kitty doesn't like. But she especially loves--not likes--Thanksgiving since it features a succulent roasted turkey, which Kitty looks forward to devouring. The rest of the food offerings set out on the table have no appeal for this cat, who has her eye on that turkey. Despite her human companion's warnings, she makes a mess of the meal, diving into the green beans and pulling the mashed potatoes off the table. Her antics eventually cause the turkey to fall and K ...more

Thanksgiving is all about turkey for Bad Kitty. She doesn’t care about anything else. That’s why she doesn’t LIKE Thanksgiving, she LOVES Thanksgiving. But the problem is, she wants the turkey all to herself. One plan after another to get the turkey goes awry. And when she finally does get the turkey, it’s not in the way she had hoped. Ka-Thump!

Typical Bad Kitty fare.

Bad Kitty tries everything he can do to get the turkey off the table. He ruins all of the other things on the table and then once he gets the turkey it is in a way that makes him not want it anymore. So where as he started out liking Thanksgiving he ends up not liking it. A cute story about wanting something too much and then learning it might be better to wait for it and on/in better terms.

Bad Kitty does not like Thanksgiving, except for turkey. Bad Kitty loves turkey....but he's not supposed to have it. This is a picture book addition to the Bad Kitty series. It is outrageous and comical as improbably endearing Bad Kitty makes a mess of Thanksgiving. A cute one to share with Bad Kitty fans this holiday season. ...more

This was our first, and possibly last Bad Kitty book. My son did not think it was funny. At. All. Apparently neither did my husband. My son asked me to return it the day I checked it out from the library. I obliged.

This is a really cute, entertaining book about how terribly things go awry when Bad Kitty tries to steal the Thanksgiving turkey! It’s a short, quick read. This is a holiday favorite of my 5 year old’s!
