My kids LOVE these books. They're cute & fun. The best part is that it's perfect as a stepping stone for chapter books. When my 7 year old picked it up, he said that he couldn't read it because it looked big. There are quite a few illustrations in it, & it's a great chapter book. Very easy to read, good content & fun stories. Truly recommend.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Renee @ Mother Daughter Book Reviews TOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 25 2012
Format: Paperback
This review consists of two parts: 1. What my daughter thinks and 2. What I, her Mom, thinks.


The book starts with Uncle Murray coming to babysit Kitty. Kitty guts stuck in a tree and Uncle Murray calls the fire department. Then Kitty, the dog, Uncle Murray, and a refrigerator all get stuck in a tree. The next day, there is a surprise for Kitty. Kitty doesn't know what it is at first so she makes up a talk show. Kitty then thinks it's another dog so she doesn't like it. Kitty's cat friends come over to see the new "dog" and they like her. They think it's a cat and they want to prove it to Kitty by doing the Pussy Cat Olympics. The baby is good at the Pussy Cat Olympics and wins every event. Kitty is a bad loser and tries to get rid of the baby. Kitty learns that the baby was adopted, just like her and puppy, so then she likes the baby and treats her like her kitty sister.

I liked the book because it's funny. I liked the "baby talk" like 'Ba!", "Lo", "Eeeee!", "Ooooo!", "Gabba Gabba Blup Blup Wheeee!" It was funny when Kitty picked up baby and tried to put her in the litter box after she accepted her in the house. My favourite event in the Pussy Cat Olympics was the "Babbling-on-an-on-without-stopping" event because the baby said "Ba!" all the way to alien land. I didn"t like the kitty "swearing". The characters in the book are really funny. Kitty is a bad kitty who was mean to the baby at first but then she learned her lesson and then she was a good kitty.

I liked this book and would recommend it to my friends (both boys and girls).


This book is really about adoption and might I say that I don't particularly care for the way it was handled.

two kids give four thumbs up June 23 2011
By BenHenry - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My boys just got the book (they're big fans of all things Bad Kitty) so here's their review:
" one of the parts, the baby screams so loud that aliens on another planet can hear it. I really like this book" said my 6.5 year old.
"It's a great book and it's really funny I got to say" said my 8 year old. "Every part of the book contains lots of good illustrations and writing that has feeling in it." (!!!)
This is the first book for the boys' summer reading lists and it's really great to have them wanting to read it rather than go to battle over reading. Highly recommend!

Bad Kitty Meets Her Match - The Showdown! July 8 2011
By M. Staffeld - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bad Kitty has destroyed her house! She's terrorized her own birthday party! She's pummeled her owner during the dreaded 'bath attempt'! She's sent Uncle Murray into a state of shock while (attempting to) housesit her and Puppy! But has Kitty finally met her match?
'Bad Kitty Meets the Baby' pits Kitty against the new baby and hilarity (and destruction) ensue when Kitty decides the baby has to go. In the battle of Kitty verses 'the baby', who will win? Hilarity ensues when Kitty tries to put the baby for sale (along with a 'free Puppy'), then tries to box the baby up much to her owner's dismay. And when Kitty's friends instigate the 'Cat Olympics' (and make the baby an official cat...)in a winner-take-all 'who's the best cat' standing will Kitty win or has she met her match in...'the baby'?
Anyone who loves the 'Bad Kitty' books will definitely enjoy this one as well! It's hilarious, it's entertaining and Bruel has included his usual 'Uncle Murray's Fun Facts'. Definitely worth buying and adding to the collection!
Let the battle begin! And may the best cat be left standing!

Funny Story with a great message Nov. 4 2011
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Review by This Kid Reviews Books! Find me on the Web!

Bad Kitty had it really good until Puppy came along. It took quite a while for Bad Kitty to get used to having Puppy around. Everything was almost back to normal when A BABY SHOWS UP!!! Bad Kitty isn't sure what this new thing is! She thinks maybe it's a kind of dog. Bad Kitty's cat friends come over and she thinks that they will certainly help get rid of this new dog but her friends think the baby is a cat and enter the baby in the Pussycat Olympics! Will the baby be a better cat than Bad Kitty? Will Bad Kitty succeed in trying to get rid of the baby? WILL the baby EVER get her bath? Read the book to find out!

The Bad Kitty chapter books aren't complicated stories but there is always a nice message in each. Mr. Bruel's latest Bad Kitty chapter book that puts Bad Kitty versus a new baby has a really great message about adoption and family at the end. The book is an easy read and the characters are great. I enjoyed reading it a lot. I like how the owners of Bad Kitty add narration throughout the book even thought you never really see them. I think it is an excellent book for kids 8+ and even younger advanced readers. The book would be great for kids who have trouble reading through an entire book because, in this book, the illustrations help tell the story and this may keep some kids interest. I went back a couple of times through the book to look at the illustrations again and again because they add so much to the story.

Not Wild About This One Nov. 8 2011
By JL - Published on
Format: Hardcover
We really enjoy the original "Bad Kitty" book and loved "Bad Kitty Gets A Bath". However, I wasn't terribly wild about "Bad Kitty Meets the Baby". I can't pinpoint a specific reason, other than to say that I just didn't find it very funny. The premise is somewhat similar to "Poor Puppy" in that a new arrival upsets Kitty's world. The difference in this book is that all the cats hold a Kitty Olympics which includes the baby, who wins every event.

Even though the Olympics portion is different, this book still seems to draw on the same/similar jokes as the other "Kitty" books and felt rather tedious and tiresome. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, I too was surprised by the allusions to "swearing" in the form of symbols (ie, "...cats are &$!*@ crazy!"). Nothing gigantic, but probably not a great idea for a kids' book. And the last thing I didn't like was the way the baby was drawn. I honestly don't know why, but it was off-putting and reminded me of a miniature version of Fatty Arbuckle. However, that was just my personal reaction and is certainly not a critique of Mr. Bruel's admirable artistic talents.

Anyway, as much as we love the other "Bad Kitty" books, maybe the concept has finally run its course. Glad other people are enjoying "...Meets the Baby", but this one was not one of our family's favorites.

Great series for parents and kids July 25 2011
By Bookish chick - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Nick Bruel understands the deeply self-centered nature of cats and their patient and loving staff (er, owners). He has created a winning character in Bad Kitty. My 7 year old and I have enjoyed reading the early picture books and the later and longer chapter books. This latest, "Bad Kitty Meets the Baby", provides witty text with amusing illustrations. We love Chatty Kitty in particular and enjoy the footnotes translating Chatty Kitty's commentary. And who doesn't coo at Poor Puppy for loving without reservation Bad Kitty, even when she drops vases on his head. Really a brilliant series and great for new readers. These are books my son, a hesitant reader, reads walking to the car and on the way home after leaving the library or bookstore.
