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

"With their trademark wit, Bruel and his bad Kitty are back."--Booklist

More About the Author

Nick Bruel is the author and illustrator of, among other books, Bad Kitty, Poor Puppy, Bad Kitty Gets a Bath, Happy Birthday, Bad Kitty, and Bad Kitty vs. Uncle Murray. A former bookseller, Nick used his quirky sense of humor and cartooning skills to get out from behind the bookstore counter and onto the shelves. But Nick was a born writer. When he was in first grade, he loved nothing more than to write stories and make drawings to go along with them, which he still does to this day. Nick lives with his wife Carina, daughter Isabel, and cat Esmerelda in Tarrytown, New York. During his down time, he collects PEZ dispensers and grows tomatoes in the backyard.

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!

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.

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!

Format: Hardcover
Nick Buel's Bad Kitty for President is out just in time for the presidential race this year. Bad Kitty for President includes the steps necessary to become president in easy to understand language and graphic novel format with a character that elementary students are already familiar with and enjoy. The students will enjoy most of the jokes, though many of them target higher-level humor that may appeal to middle school students. Bad Kitty runs for neighborhood president when he decides something needs to be done about the stray cat issue. All the neighborhood cats join the race, as well. The winner is determined by who can best kiss the baby. For those students who have a good grasp of a presidential race, the book will be fun and interesting, others may not understand the book, or it may confuse them.

I would recommend this book for upper elementary or middle school students. The bad actions and humor will definitely appeal to their sense of humor.

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.
