Bad Kitty Gets a Bathby Nick Bruel

Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Beaverton, OR
Zombies! Talking turnips! Puppy! Kitty takes 'em all on in her newest chapter book. But her mettle is really tested when she encounters her creator. In Bad Kitty Drawn to Trouble (Roaring Brook Press), the seventh installment of Nick Bruel's New York Times-bestselling series, Kitty encounters what may be her most formidable foe yet: her creator! Kitty soon learns that feline manipulation works both ways — especially when you're at the wrong end of your author's pencil. Along the way, Nick shows kids how a book is created, despite the frequent interruptions from you-know-who.
Synopses & Reviews
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 Kittys 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, youll 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.
Break out the bandages! Bad Kitty needs a bath. And shes not getting in the tub without a fight.
