43 months - We are not huge fans of Bad Kitty and this one was ok but didn't really scream out as a must own Christmas book. It didn't help much that it's to the rhyme of Twas The Night Before Christmas. Is it just me or are there too many books that do this? Ugh. There are just too many not-so-great Christmas books out there. ( )

This is a book I stumbled upon while looking through the children's section at Barnes and Noble. I fell in love with this adorable tale of a black kitty who gets in a lot of trouble the night of Christmas Eve. On each page the author tells us what they kitty has destroyed or ruined, maybe he got into the food or broke a couple ornaments off the tree, Whatever it was the kitty was always up to no good! I think this is a great holiday book and could even be read to an older age group because it is funny and children can relate easily if they have a mischievous animal at home. I would have my own students tell me a story about their pets at home, and then draw a picture of that animal.

A fun Bad Kitty Christmas tale. The only drawback is the alphabetical names aren't agin as other bad kitty books. But the warm hearted tale and ending are wonderful. ( )

Looks like a funny story about the trouble a cat gets into during christmas. From reading other reviews it also helps to teach students their alphabet.

A Bad Kitty Christmas by Nick Bruel is the first picture book in the series after a long run of the hybrid graphic novels. It's Christmas time and Kitty is up to her old tricks — making for a disastrous Christmas for her family and Poor Puppy.

The book could have just been another alphabetic rhyming picture book that chronicles Bad Kitty's antics. That would have been cute. The first ABC list shows all the creative and demented ways Kitty destroys the Christmas themed things in the house. The second list outlines all the presents she hopes to receive. It's a Christmas themed reprise of Bad Kitty.

But the book has more drama and more heart to it. Bad Kitty and Poor Puppy are separated from their family for Christmas. In the last ABC list, Bad Kitty learns about the importance of family, especially during holidays. Except for the Christmas theme — the family part is pretty inclusive of all types of families. ( )
