Book Details

Now in graphic novel!

The phenomenally successful Bad Kitty series is purr-fect for fans of Dav Pilkey's Dog Man and Ben Clanton's Narwhal and Jelly series, reluctant readers, comic book fans, and cranky cats.

Bad Kitty is back (and badder than ever!) when she is forced to take a bath in this hysterical full-color graphic novel for young readers!

The following are some items you will need for Kitty's bath: one bathtub, plenty of water, dry towels, a suit of armor, a letter to your loved ones, clean underwear (because stressful situations can cause "accidents"), an ambulance in your driveway with the engine running, and, oh, yeah, you'll also need Kitty…but good luck with that!

Since its publication in 2005, bestselling author and illustrator Nick Bruel's BAD KITTY has captured the hearts of cat lovers and haters alike. In Bad Kitty Gets a Bath, Kitty is at her worst in this riotous book filled with bad smells, cautionary tales of horror, and hopefully by the end…some soap. The funniest of any of Kitty's adventures, though don't tell her that.
