Praise for the Bad Kitty series

“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
