Kitty’s owners are taking a week off and leaving Kitty and Puppy at home. So who’s going to watch them? Good ol’ Uncle Murray, star of the Fun Facts feature of previous Kitty books—the guy you thought knew everything about cats. Think again! It isn’t long before Uncle Murray is driven to near madness by shenanigans of epic proportions.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

CHAPTER ONE
PUSSYCAT PARADISE
WELCOME, KITTY!
Welcome to Pussycat Paradise, where everything you see is made entirely out of FOOD—food for your belly!
The mountains are made out of kibble. The trees are made out of sausages and bacon. Cans of cat food grow out of the ground. And the grass is made out of catnip.
Yes, Kitty! Eat! EAT! Food is everywhere! The rocks are made out of turkey and giblets. The dirt is made out of tuna fish. Even the rivers flow with beef gravy.
And the best part, of course, is that YOU are the only one here! No dogs to hound you.

Reviews

Praise for Bad Kitty vs Uncle Murray

“The style gives the book a fast pace and adds to the comedic atmosphere. However, it’s Uncle Murray’s good-natured bumbling against Bad Kitty’s cranky craziness that will get the giggles going.” --School Library Journal

Praise for Bad Kitty:

 “It’s Bad Kitty’s unapologetic, curmudgeon nature that delivers the laugh-out-loud funny.”—Publishers Weekly

“Bruel’s fast-paced humor is just right for the beginning chapter book set . . . A frenzied fusion of fiction and nonfiction with plenty of appeal for young readers.” —School Library Journal
