Break out the bandages! Bad Kitty needs a bath. And she's not getting in the tub without a fight.

Pet owners beware!

Bad Kitty really needs a bath, and she is forced to take one in this hysterical new illustrated how-to for young readers. The following are some items you will need for Kitty's bath: one bathtub, plenty of water, dry towels, a suit of armor, a letter to your loved ones, clean underwear (because stressful situations can cause "accidents"), an ambulance in your driveway with the engine running, and, oh, yeah, you'll also need Kitty . . . but good luck with that! Kitty is at her worst in this riotous how-to guide filled with bad smells, cautionary tales of horror, and hopefully by the end . . . some soap.

Great idea to mix non-fiction with fiction. It tells how cat's bathe, about fur-balls, and if needed the correct way to bathe a cat. Also included was what happens when a little boy tries to bathe like a cat. The illustrations were really cute and added to the story immensely. Great intro into cats.

Summary: A mix of information and story about how to bathe a cat. Genre: Early Reader Chapter Book Personal Reflection: I think this is a cute idea for a book, as a cat lover myself, I like the mix of humor and information. Concept: I think this could be a good way to introduce kids into reading chapter books because it's a topic they're likely to already be familiar with.

These Bad Kitty books is the very first 'chapter books' my dyslexic son will read. He's read these all over and over again and I'm grateful for the thoughtful humor and illistrations of this book. I love the book too! Get them all and laugh, laugh, laugh. It's so good to see my son actually WANT to read a book! These are giving him his first taste of loving to read a book. It's not easy being 9 years old and dyslexic. Thank you Nick Bruel.

A hysterical story abo...

A hysterical story about Bad Kitty getting a bath. The story is written about cats hating baths, especially if they don't want to get wet and what you will need for a bath (a suit of armor, a goodbye letter to your family, lots of plasma and lots of bandages), how to give a cat a bath and what will happen between you and your cat after giving them a bath. The graphic novel was really funny and the little quips written by Uncle Murray or on the side definitely added to the humor of the situation. Bad Kitty novels/ graphic novels are really easy to read and its hard to not sit and read the whole thing at one time. The stories are split into perfect chapters and is accompanied by a glossary that helps define some vocabulary throughout the book. This is a story I would have out for even beginner readers to just look at and laugh at the illustrations and begin experimenting with reading novels.

This book is funny and educational especially for people who do not know much about cats. It brings the reality of cats to the reader and illustrates exactly what happens with cats in certain situations, very funny. A good read for children and adults.

This is a very funny graphic novel for young readers about how to go about giving your kitty a bath. We learn that kitties hate baths, but how to talk your cat into getting one anyway. The book also contains some interesting facts about cats. This book is so hilarious! I was laughing out loud through the whole thing! A great book for anyone who has a kitty or ever wanted one!
