CHAPTER ONE
PUSSYCAT PARADISE
WELCOME, KITTY!
Welcome to Pussycat Paradise, where everything you see is made entirely out of FOOD—food for your belly!

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
