Summary

It's Bad Kitty's birthday, and you're invited! Bad Kitty's second illustrated novel is packed with deadpan humor, rich tidbits of cat information -- and even some suspense! Who took Kitty's presents? Why are Kitty's friends so bizzare? Readers will laugh out loud at Kitty's feline mood swings, and they'll be touched by the heartwarming visit from a surprise guest.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "That bad kitty is back, this time in a celebratory mood. Well, it's her birthday, anyway. In the now-familiar mix of wry story and high-impact cartoon-style art, this features Kitty's unseen owner trying hard to get the party underway. A mix of guests and some missing presents (including some awful ones, like a sweater!) mar the festive mood, but a special visitor makes things right. Spreads of fun facts (don't feed cats chocolate) disrupt the story line but are interesting enough to make the intrusion worth it. Cute kitty, even if she is bad.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2009 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In the second early chapter book starring this perennial sourpuss, Bad Kitty's day starts off with a special alphabetical "Birthday Breakfast" that includes Aardvark Bagels, Clam Doughnuts and Eel Fritters. Each chapter focuses on a different part of the day's festivities (Bad Kitty is excited about the prospect of presents, but less so about looking through an old photo album and decorating the house). Eventually, some aptly named guests such as Strange Kitty, Chatty Kitty and Stinky Kitty arrive, and the story becomes a whodunit when Bad Kitty's presents vanish and the prime suspect ends up being the lovable slow-wit, Puppy. The appearance of Bad Kitty's Mama, who sports a pearl necklace and a vacuous expression, offers-briefly-a softer side of the feline. Bruel has fun with the format, using footnotes, different font sizes, comedic/informative interludes about cat behavior ("Uncle Murray's Fun Facts") and lengthy side stories that take place in corner panels to add to the story's freewheeling atmosphere. But as usual, it's Bad Kitty's unapologetic, curmudgeon nature that delivers the laugh-out-loud funny. Ages 7-10. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
