"Bad Kitty" is certainly my favorite children's book character and "Bad Kitty Gets a Bath" definitely does not disappoint. Overall a great book and one I very, very highly recommend!!
"It was a good book because he told me facts about cats and how to deal with them. It was also good because cats don't like baths so the story gets really funny when they try to make kitty take a bath. When i read it i wanted to keep reading just to find out how was kitty going to take a bath. I finished it really fast and i read it again just because i liked it so much!"
It is a good read, with insightful facts, and some real laughs. It is also the kind of book you can read to your child and show them the illustrations and it will have the same impact as if they read it themselves. I think my daughter has found her new favorite character and i highly recommend it.
In this story, kitty has been playing hard with puppy and they both become very stinky and dirty. In the introduction, we get an explanation of how kitties typically clean themselves with their tongues; but as we soon learn, this time Kitty is so stinky and dirty that she will need an honest to goodness bath. Bathing a kitty is never an easy task and we try several different ideas. But in classic kitty style, Bad Kitty has some ideas of her own.
The age range listed for this book is 9-12. While there is nothing at all inappropriate in the story; the clever humor and use of sarcasm is more likely to be appreciated by kids 8+. My son is only 4, and while some of the humor was a little over his head, he was definitely able to follow along and, because he knows the characters so well, he still enjoyed the story. I also like that while the story reads like a chapter book, it doesn't sacrifice on the illustrations. There enough pictures in the story to keep even a younger child engaged. At the back of the book there is a glossary of some of the bigger words in the story. Even the glossary is done in a humorous and clever way.
The only criticism I have is that the illustrations are black and white and the pages have a grainy, newspaper print kind of feel to them. This just didn't feel like the same level of quality as the other bad kitty books. Just because it's a chapter book, it doesn't need to feel like a cheap paperback. I took one star off for that.
