Kitty throws a fit when it realizes the family is out of its favorite foods. Kitty starts to do terrible things to protest being offered healthier alternatives. Once the family returns from the story with all of Kitty's favorite foods, he makes amends and corrects his wrong-doings. ( )

Bad Kitty was not always a bad kitty. It started when the family ran out of cat food, and all they had was healthy food. Kitty was very bad in a variety of hilarious ways. When her family got kitty's favorite foods she turned into a very good kitty, until the arrival of Poor Puppy!

Absolutely awesome children's book. I was very surprised by the advanced vocabulary used in this book. ( )

Funny book with great illustrations. The kitty was bad because he didn't want to eat the alphabetical list of veggies. He tore things up and went crazy over the idea. There were three different sections in this book that listed things in alphabetical order. Good for learning phonics or just letter recognition.

Bibliographic Information: Nick Bruel, “Bad Kitty”, Illustrated by Nick Bruel, Published by Roaring Brook Press, ©2005, 36 pages
Genre: ABC Book
Summary: This book is about a kitty that went from being good to bad and back to good again. The person ran out of her food. So she did a lot of bad stuff in alphabetical order then her owner went and bought her some food in alphabetical order. So the kitty went from a bad kitty to a good kitty and fixed everything she did earlier.

My Response: I like the story behind this book. It’s just not about listing stuff in alphabetical order but has a story about the kitty and the illustrations are just so funny. I feel that children could really relate if they own a cat with the stuff the kitty does in this story. Plus they get to learn new words in fun way with have to read works with the same start of letters over and over again.
