Book Review: Happy Birthday Bad Kitty by Nick Bruel (no spoilers)

Book: Happy Birthday Bad Kitty
Author: Nick Bruel
Publication: May 11, 2010
Source: read while babysitting
Rating: 3/5 stars

Summary (from Goodreads):
It's Bad Kitty's birthday, and you're invited! Bad Kitty's second illustrated novel is packed with deadpan humor, rich tidbits of cat information -- and even some suspense! Who took Kitty's presents? Why are Kitty's friends so bizzare? Readers will laugh out loud at Kitty's feline mood swings, and they'll be touched by the heartwarming visit from a surprise guest.

My Thoughts
My sister and I were babysitting and it was late at night and the kids were either asleep or getting close to that time. I picked up this book from their coffee table. I had read one other bad kitty book, but it was just one of the children's book. I really liked it so I started reading. Obviously this book is way below my age level, but I thought the author made a really entertaining book for younger readers. I loved all his fancy names for the cats that came to Bad Kitty's birthday party. The added mystery to the story was entertaining also. The illustrations really kept me interested in Bad Kitty's story. There was time this book made me laugh. I think for a children's book this is great read and even though it is below my reading level it kept me pretty entertained.

Thanks for reading



  1. Lol, I was at my little cousin's house once and I picked up a book, it was a Dr. Seuss, it's the only one I've read but it was really fun. I pictured me reading it to my kids (I don't have kids) but I know that if I do have kids someday, I'll read Dr Seuss books with them

    1. Dr. Seuss has wrote some awesome books. My favorites have to be Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, Go Dog Go, and Hop on Pop. I used to read them a lot as a kid. This one was such a fun quick read. I had to review it.
