“The style gives the book a fast pace and adds to the comedic atmosphere. However, it's Uncle Murray's good-natured bumbling against Bad Kitty's cranky craziness that will get the giggles going.” ―School Library Journal

Bad kitty is literally a scream. Nervous and crazy, she has an out-of-control imagination and deep-rooted paranoia. Her companion dog always has exactly the same stupid grin on his face, and I assume this depiction is because this is how Bad Kitty sees him. The book's illustrations are minimalistic, still conveying characterizations and frenetic action perfectly. I love how the author changes up the pace, stopping the story at times to explain why a cat acts the way it acts, or to have Uncle Murray explain why he loves animals so much...a story within a story that seems so sweet and genuinely heartfelt, it actually brings a tear to my eye each time I read it.
When getting this book, I would definitely recommend the other two in the series, "Bad Kitty Gets a Bath" and "Bad Kitty's Birthday", as it introduces and develops some other characters, like the neighborhood cats, that reappear in "Bad Kitty and Uncle Murray". The new one out... the one about the baby, we will also buy when it comes out. We are now dedicated fans!
However, Uncle Murray is far and away the one my daughter likes the best, and I'm actually thinking of getting the hardcover, because our paperback may not stand up to the amount of re-reading this book is going to continue to get, as each person who comes to our house is required by our daughter to read and enjoy it with her.
Highly recommend this for avid and reluctant readers alike.
