In this riotous companion to Bad Kitty and Bad Kitty Gets a Bath, readers are invited to join the rambunctious feline for a laugh-out-loud birthday adventure! Bad Kitty's day starts off with a special alphabetical birthday breakfast that includes aardvark bagels, clam doughnuts, and eel fritters. Each chapter focuses on a different part of the day's festivities. Before long, Bad Kitty's party guests arrive, including Chatty Kitty, Strange Kitty, Stinky Kitty, and several other neighborhood pals. But when Bad Kitty discovers that her presents have vanished one by one, things start to get ugly for her guests!
This lively, hilarious story is great for reading aloud, and it's filled with all kinds of lessons. "Uncle Murray's Fun Facts," which are sprinkled throughout the book, teach young readers all about responsible pet care and offer information about why cats sleep, scratch, and engage in odd behaviors. The text is addressed directly to Bad Kitty herself, giving the story a unique feel that will appeal to high-energy kids. Lots of movement and plenty of silly sound effects (whump, fwang, ker-sproing) will grab the attention of even the most reluctant readers.
