This book was very amusing. All the books in the Bad Kitty series are funny. ( : Sometimes a little violent too! : ) The cat gets a bath and the owner... well your just going to have to see for yourself.

A hilarious romp through the house just to get to the bathtub. Fantastic beginner novel that includes great tips on how to give your kitty a bath. Only things missing from the tips are 1) if you for some reason don't have a suit of armor available, make absolutely certain that you are wearing long sleeves and 2) a warning that when your kitty gives you lovey-eyes at bath time - DO NOT TRUST!!

Bad Kitty is back, but this time the story is too big for a picture book. This time around the plan is to give Kitty a bath, something Kitty has no interest in. We get to see different strategies and preparations, and the results.

This book is laugh out-loud hilarious, with Kitty's attempts to escape bath. There are illustrated chases through the house and Uncle Murray's fun facts. This is a great read aloud for the non-reading primary child, but also would be a hugely popular with the primary reading set for its humour. Parents will also find themselves chuckling as they read it.

Go get this.

I love Bad Kitty! I love it so much that I, an adult, have taken this book home and read it to my all-adult friends. You might need to have known a cat to fully appreciate this series.
