My daughter and I are huge fans of Bad Kitty, so when the opportunity came up to get an advanced copy of the latest volume, I snagged it up. There are plenty of kid books out there on writing, but this is one of the most enjoyable, easy-to-digest, ones out there, while managing to be highly informative. It hits the high points -- main character, conflict, premise, plot and plot points, antagonist, ending, and even using the dictionary -- using hilarious examples from the Bad Kitty universe.

My grandson could not put it down. Loved it.

This is one in a series of books. The main character is Bad Kitty; a grouchy, uninterested and uncooperative cat. The book explains about books, parts of books and how they are written. The author, Nick Bruel, explains it in text and picture with kid-oriented humour. Nick Bruel is the author and artist. The book is filled with illustrations throughout. In various chapters things such as author, character, conflict, antagonist, and plot points are explained. Done in a humourous way, it strives to not just explain writing but to encourage kids to write stories that are their own. It is a fun read and I think adults can learn from this as well as kids. It takes a topic that could be dry and boring and makes it funny and interesting. I will keep my eye out for more of the books from this series!

Fans of Bad Kitty as well as those interested in writing, cartooning, and drawing, will enjoy learning how a best-selling author creates a book. Bruel keeps his lessons to the same light, humorous tone as the other books. I quite like that he includes even the colors he uses.Library copy.
