From the creator of The New York Times bestseller Boing! comes the riotous story of a cat gone berserk -- four times over an in alphabetical order each time. Kitty is not happy hen she's told that her favorite foods are all gone and all that's left are Asparagus, Beets, Cauliflower, Dill...and 22 other equally unappealing vegetables. So she: Ate my homework, Bit grandma, Clawed the curtains, Damaged the dishes, and so on, through Z. Only when tastier things arrive (An Assortment of Anchovies, Buffalo Burritos, Chicken Cheesecake...) does she Apologize to Grandma.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–This four-part alphabet book will appeal to youngsters who like their stories more naughty than nice. The tale opens with Kitty learning that her owners have run out of cat food and that her only options are healthy and nutritious edibles that run the gamut from Asparagus to Zucchini. She reacts by doing an A-to-Z list of mischievous things, like claw[ing] the curtains and hurl[ing] hair balls at our heads. When her owners return with food that ranges from An Assortment of Anchovies to Baked Zebra Ziti, Kitty realizes she must atone for her bad behavior with a final list of alphabetical deeds such as cleaning the cat box and washing the car. Some actions and items are a bit of a stretch, in particular sQuashes for Q and rhUbarb for U. While the story is packed with colorful cartoon illustrations that introduce each object, it is Kitty who steals the show with her slyly drawn feline expressions. Intended for slightly older alphabet-book fans, this offering will attract readers with a taste for the ridiculous.–Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA

From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. Ostensibly about a cat that turns bad when her family runs out of her favorite food, this is really a clever alphabet book for kids old enough to appreciate the way words work. When a calm kitty overhears her owner say that healthy food is now on the menu, the high-energy artwork shows the cat in paroxysms of horror set against a series of blocks containing pictures of vegetables, alphabetically arranged from asparagus to zucchini. That's when Kitty decides to become Bad Kitty: she "ate my homework . . . hurled hair balls at our heads." Kitty changes again after her owner returns with an A-Z assortment of good, if peculiar, treats, some of which may give readers pause (a donkey named Dave). But Kitty is happy with them all, and to show her pleasure, she undoes all her bad actions--in alphabetical order. The cat, with seemingly dozens of expressions, is the star, but other aspects of the amusingly silly illustrations have equal weight. There's so much going on here that kids will find lots to laugh about. Ilene Cooper

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny stuff from A to Z! Dec 15 2005
This book is very funny! It shows the alphabet 4 times in the story. First, there is no food for the kitty, so the owners list all the things they could feed the kitty instead of cat food, everything is listed from A to Z. Then the kitty is not impressed! So he does all these bad things from A to Z! Then the owners bring the kitty wonderful food to eat, from A to Z! The the kitty goes wonderful good deeds from A to Z! The ending is very funny and leaves the reader thinking what will kitty do next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read for Kids Jan. 31 2012
By A. Guy
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This series of books is great. They're bigger than a standard child's book, as they're chapters books. However, they're full of pictures & easy reading. A great transitional book/set for any child that is starting chapter books. My 7 year old loves them. (As do my other two.) :)

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT'S A KITTY TO DO? Jan. 28 2012
By Gail Cooke TOP 50 REVIEWER
It's always a special treat to hear a favorite book superbly read. Who doesn't love Nick Bruel's Bad Kitty series, and who better to deliver it with appropriate comic appeal than Emmy and Tony nominee Vanessa Williams? Yes, it is hilarious but it is also a four-part alphabet book that will have youngsters learning their ABCs whether they intended to or not.

Our story opens when Kitty finds out that there's no more cat food in the house, so she's going to have to make do with veggies - Asparagus, Beets, Cauliflower, Dill - well, you get the idea. There's the beginning of the alphabet which goes all the way through to Zucchini, and a menu that doesn't appeal to Kitty at all.

What does the frantic feline do? Ate homework, Bit Grandma, Clawed curtains, Damaged dishes, and so the rampage goes. However, things begin to look up when her owner returns from the grocery store with An assortment of anchovies, Buffalo burrito, Chicken Cheesecake, etc. So, how does Kitty make up for her bad behavior? Listen, read or do both with this Book and CD set.
