I have been reading a lot of early chapter books recently, and one series has made a particular impression: Bad Kitty, by Nick Bruel, is a hilarious set that follows the main character, Bad Kitty, through all kinds of mischief. I have a cat of my own, easily picked out many of my pet’s amusing habits in Bad Kitty. Not only are these books funny, but they are filled with interesting facts about cats.
As an animal lover and cat owner, I really appreciated Bad Kitty. Kids will enjoy it because of its snappy humour and interesting format: there are lots of pictures interspersed with text, which helps the story move along nicely. The combination of visuals and the departure from traditional chapter book format makes the Bad Kitty series an extremely fun read for ages 6 and up.
