The votes are in--it's a Bad Kitty landslide!

It's time to elect a new president of the Neighborhood Cat Coalition! Who will win the election? The candidate chosen by the kitties on the right side of the street or the candidate chosen by the kitties on the left side of the street? When election time rolls around, one candidate (guess who?) will discover that she never bothered to register to vote and the entire election will be decided by a surprise, last minute absentee ballot sent by Old Kitty.

Got this as a gift for a little one who just turned 8 years old and she LOVED it. Plus, it came with stickers which doubled her pleasure. On the down side....I was informed that she now would like the whole series.....LOL

But in's a great reading book for kids so I guess Christmas, Birthdays, "Being Good Rewards", will help her build the collection.
I'm not familiar with bad kitty series but my kids are fans from school. I have to admit I bought this mainly for myself- hoping it would be entertaining for me. The idea of a 'bad cat' combine with some gentle mockery at campaigning sounded like something to keep mommy sort of entertained at bedtime. Well, politically jaded me got a lession is basic American patriotism and optimism that night.

The book is actually a great book for kids, and is very informative about the election process and democracy. There are some "interruptions" in the book that provide even more detailed facts (like a nosy lady who interrupts the story, etc) but the extra pages can easily be skipped over by a kid just learning how to read without missing any of the plot. There is quite a bit of good information in the storyline, as well as a fairly extensive glossary. Bad Kitty is of course, entertaining, but there is nothing negative or politically snarky about the electoral process. I will certainly check out some more of the Bad Kitty series.
I am no expert on the "Bad Kitty" nor his misadventures. Frankly, I thought Bad Kitty was a book about, well, misbehaving cats! However, my young pre-teen nephew set me straight. It seems that he knows about the adventures of this accident prone feline. When I asked him what we wanted for Christmas, this book was on the top of his list (along with Boxtrolls). Apparently, I must have scored big. He's already read the twice and is onto his third sitting with this book. The illistrations convey the storyline quite well while the story is easily readable and appears to be humorious in that quarky pre-teen way.
Got it for my 9-year-old daughter who voraciously devoured the book in short order. She loved it! She said there were some tough words she didn't know, but the glossary at the end helped. I think we'll be referring back to it as November approaches and the political climate heats up.
watching to future
Bad Kitty for President is another great chapter book from Nick Bruel. In this story, the neighborhood cats decide to have an election to decide who will be the head of the neighborhood cat coalition. The kitties on the right side of the street choose their candidate and the kitties on the left side of the street choose theirs. Then the mayhem begins as Big Kitty and Bad Kitty stump for votes. There is a lot of factual information about voting and elections that is perfect in helping the elementary student understand the election process. A real winner!
My 9 year old has always struggled with reading and it's a hassle to get her to read anything because of it. Once she discovered the bad kitty series she finally found books she is interested in and not too much a struggle for her. It's technically a "chapter" book, which makes her feel better about her reading, but it has funny pictures which she loves!
Great book. I purchased this as a gift for my six-year-old son who loves chapter books and is on the verge of reading them on his own. The author helped me out with a clever way to explain the election process to a kindergartener! We have a big sense of humor in our house and often hear chatty kitty's meow, meow, meow repeated at length!
Kitty rocks and as she tries to become president of the local Kitty Foundation, it is hillarity and fun
