Praise for Happy Birthday, Bad Kitty

“The frenetic black-and-white illustrations are just plain hysterical. . . . Fun for all, especially fans.”—Kirkus Reviews

“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, and the interplay of the text with the comic black-and-white illustrations ratchets up the zaniness level. . . . A frenzied fusion of fiction and nonfiction with plenty of appeal for young readers.”—School Library Journal
