Comments for Bad Kitty Gets a Bath

Bad Kitty Gets a Bath: 12/19/10

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)We are a family of Bad Kitty fans. We have every single book in the series, having followed it from the very first picture book. With Bad Kitty Gets a Bath, Nick Bruel changed from picture books to hybrid graphic novels.

The title says it all: Bad Kitty gets a bath. She's stinky and dirty from a run in with the dog. Bad Kitty, with her normal bad attitude, needs extra special care when bathing, like a suit of armor, an ambulance waiting in the driveway, plane tickets to go into hiding until Bad Kitty forgets about the bath and a clean set of underwear for example.

Despite all this silliness and ridiculous illustrations, the book is also a useful guide for washing cats. They do occasionally get dirty and need baths beyond what they can do for themselves. So this book while being entertaining is also instructive.

My daugher and I bought this a few months back and loved it. We were reading it in the store and laughing so hard it had to come home;)

I also have Happy Birthday Bad Kitty and Bad Kitty Versus Uncle Murray to review. They're also very silly.

I love these books! We (Little Rainbow and I) did a review of this one and it was a lot of fun.
