Review

While there is no doubt that Bad Kitty for President will provide some good-old page-turning enjoyment, readers should come away with some election knowledge to boot. (School Library Journal)

Format: Hardcover
Bad Kitty for President by Nick Bruel is the newest Bad Kitty book. This series follows Bad Kitty (who is a very bad kitty) and is perfect for kids who are ready to transition from picture to chapter books. This book follows Bad Kitty as he runs for president (of the kitty association) and he learns how the American political system works.

This is a fantastic book full of laughs while also teaching readers about the political system. Bad Kitty's campaign is full of scandals and lies (inferring that his opponent may be a dog, getting in a cat fight) which are very entertaining. If you loved the other Bad Kitty books then you will love this one also.

Appropriateness: This is an illustrated novel that is perfect for kids that are moving from picture books to chapter books and it's short enough to work as a read aloud for younger readers. I recommend it to readers 4+

My son has recently graduated from picture books to chapter books. Every one of the earlier Bad Kitty books have been laugh out loud winners, and "Bad Kitty for President" is right up there with the others.

I am a Children's Librarian and I love Bad Kitty almost as much as the kids do! I am also someone with a BS in government and am looking forward doing a program for my Library about how we elect our president, using Bad Kitty for President. Kudos again to Nick Bruel for breaking down our election process in a way that elementary students can understand. And more kudos for him doing it in a non-partisan way that can be used without ruffling of feathers on either side. Can't wait to see what Bad Kitty does next - she is made of awesome!

Never mind that I am too young to vote! I am here to throw my support behind BAD KITTY FOR PRESIDENT (of the neighborhood cat club)!!!!
Bad Kitty is running against Big Kitty for President of the Neighborhood Cat Club and I am here to tell you that Bad Kitty loves babies, is nice to neighbors and gives out free fish and hugs. I also want you to know that I learned from this book that Big Kitty "is really a dog and dogs smell like moldy corn chips and only a weirdo would vote for corn chips." You can follow the whole hysterical political campaign in the book. In the surprise ending, one cat wins by a whisker!

I am a big fan of the Bad Kitty Series! In fact I had a whole Bad Kitty creative writing contest a little while ago. I really like Mr. Bruel's writing style because he always has a great message inside a super-funny story. I really like how he also uses illustrations to help tell the story. I think "Bad Kitty for President" is a great book especially for this year seeing as how the USA presidential election is this year. Uncle Murray (my favorite character from the Bad Kitty series) has little parts in the book too. He is "helping" Bad Kitty, but he explains to us what all the different parts of an election are. He explains things like primaries, fund-raising, Caucasus and registering to vote. There is also a glossary in the back of the book that has all sorts of election terms and their definitions. I think this book is a great way for parents and teachers to help explain to kids how elections work in a very funny way!

I actually liked it more than I thought it would. I thought the way they presented the election info was very interesting. But I don't think "Holy &$@&" belongs in a book that 2nd graders are reading.

Bad Kitty for President

Nick Bruel. Roaring Brook Press.
(January 17th, 2012) 128 p.

Bad Kitty has decided to run for president of the local cat club. As Bad Kitty tries to woo all the other cats, we learn about the stages in the election process. Bad Kitty teaches us some very important lessons, including "every vote counts".''

I am a Canadian, so I can't attest to the absolute accuracy of the text, but this seemed like a very good explanation of the American political system. I know this would be a fun way to help students learn about the electoral process.

Bad Kitty is one of the homeliest and charming cats you will ever meet, and Nick Bruel has taken a not so exciting topic and made it very entertaining. I found this book to be laugh out loud funny. Once again, Bad Kitty gets my vote.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Catherine Nichols on June 1, 2012
Format: Hardcover
A candidate from the Right Side of the Street who:

Wants to throw those without homes into a volcano
Tries to buy votes (with a dead fish)
Goes ballistic on the opposing candidate
Uses a 527 Group to run attack ads
Refuses to debate on the issues

No, the candidate is not Newt Gingrich. It's Bad Kitty. Nick Bruel's feisty feline is back and this time she's running for office. After years of faithful service, Old Kitty is giving up his position as the President of the Neighborhood Cat Club. Bad Kitty is motivated to run for his position when stray cats from another area wander into her domain. Instead of erecting a giant fence to keep them out, Bad Kitty wants to toss the freeloaders into an active volcano.

The book's seven chapters are broken down into the steps of the electoral process, from the primaries to the results. Along the way, Bad Kitty does her best to upend the proceedings as she seeks endorsements, goes on the campaign trail, takes on the media, and debates her opponent, Big Kitty. When election day rolls around, the results are surprising, but satisfying. As Bruel tells Bad Kitty, "Democracy makes sure that EVERYONE has a chance to participate, that EVERYONE has a chance to win, and that EVERYONE has a chance to someday become the leader of his or her community." Let's hope he's right.

Once again, Bruel delivers a laugh-aloud chapter book that kids are sure to love. Besides telling a good story, the book provides a lot of factual information that goes down easy. For the most part, kids won't realize that they're learning a lot about the electoral process. The exceptions are the two Fun Facts spreads. Although Uncle Murray (Bad Kitty's backer) attempts to enliven things up, the presentation is a little heavy handed, especially for kids in the primary grades. Still, the story itself does an excellent job of showing how the system works.
