Even though (spoiler) Bad Kitty has a tantrum, this is actually a different take on the Santa story (we see ALL the different Santa's, not so subtlety asking for everyone to GIVE, but only the REAL Santa knows the score. I'm still not hooked on Bad Kitty overall, but this one I did not hate.

Although Bad Kitty hasn't been particularly good this year, she still would like some presents and writes a letter to Santa.

Kitty wants to not only write a letter to Santa, but wants to hand deliver it to him. So Kitty heads to the mall to give Santa the letter, but on the way meets several different types of Santa, which confuses her. The mall is closed, and Kitty is disappointed, but in the end Santa restores Kitty's hope and belief in Santa.

My granddaughter loves Bad Kitty. Cute stories, relatable characters. Lol, I love her too.

Good stories. Entertaining. Young readers really enjoy. My granddaughter wants ALL of the Bad Kitty books. I can't wait to read this one to her.

I don't usually read the Bad Kitty books, but this one was actually really funny. I'm not a big fan of having the Salvation Army people and money container in the book just because of what they do and don't stand for. But the story is funny and Bad Kitty was funny.
