Bad Kitty School Daze
By Nick Bruel
160 pages – ages 7+
Published by Roaring Brook Press on January 8, 2013
Bad Kitty and Puppy have crossed the line! With Kitty’s grumpiness and Puppy’s drooling problem, (and their constant fighting) it’s no surprise that they are sent to Diabla Von Gloom’s School for Wayward Pets. There, the dueling duo meet Miss Dee, a very kind teacher, Petunia, a very tough bull-dog who HATES!!! cats, and DR. LAGOMORPH, a diabolical mutant supervillian bunny whose arch-enemies are Captain Fantasticat and Power Mouse (A.K.A. Weird Kitty and the little mouse). Kitty and Puppy go through events at school, like Arts & Crafts and Story time. Puppy seems to be trying his best but Kitty is not cooperating (plus she is really scared Petunia will figure out she’s really a cat and not a cow ). Miss Dee likes Kitty and tries to help her be good, but Kitty is not sure she wants to be friends with the other pets in obedience school.
First I have to say I am a HUGE fan of Mr. Bruel’s books. I have met Mr. Bruel a couple of times at book signings I went to and he is a very nice person and is always very kind and takes time to talk to me. My favorite Bad Kitty adventure so far is “Bad Kitty Vs. Uncle Murray” and I have to say – this one is my new favorite! I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! I love the humor! Mr Bruel seemed to have packed even more humor into this Bad Kitty adventure. I love the pictures and Uncle Murray’s fun facts (Uncle Murray is the school bus driver)! I love the awesome characters of Dr. Lagomorph and Petunia, they are hysterical! I think Dr. Lagomorph is the best character in the book (besides Bad Kitty and Puppy), and probably the funniest! Like all the other Bad Kitty books, this one has a nice message in it. Bad Kitty really ends up helping all the other pets in school and is kind to them. I love how Mr. Bruel always has a good message in his books.
I give “Bad Kitty: School Daze” 100 out of 5 bookworms! … ERR… What? my rating only goes to five? *sigh* Well, it still gets the highest rating!
NOW for the giveaway!!! Mr. Nick Bruel has generously sent me a signed copy of this book to giveaway! Along with the signature there is also a hand-drawn illustration of … DR. LAGOMORPH!!!!! (MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA (that felt good! I haven’t used my evil laugh in a while!)) Please comment on this post from now until Sunday the 10th to get an entry! I will announce the winner on Monday the 11! Josie will pick the names from “The Hat”! Good luck!
