Donna Ashcraft (Children's Literature)
This hilarious cartoon-style book tells the story of Uncle Murray who has been put in charge of Bad Kitty and Puppy while their people are gone for a week. Uncle Murray, a goofy guy, gets picked on by not only Bad Kitty, but all the cats in the neighborhood. The tale contrasts his fond relationship with Puppy and his intimidation by Bad Kitty. This chapter book with black and white illustrations highlights Uncle Murray s dilemma. Interspersed with pages of fun facts about cats and ending with an appendix about phobias, this book is fun for not only young readers, but readers of all ages. With a style full of exaggeration, Bruel engages the reader and sets up an adventure that ends with a surprise for Bad Kitty. 2010, A Neal Porter Book/Roaring Brook Press, $13.99. Ages 7 to 10.

Waking from a dream of Pussycat Paradise, Bad Kitty learns her humans are going on a trip. Of course, they'll bring her a surprise on their return. In the meantime, Uncle Murray will stay with Bad Kitty and Puppy. Puppy droolingly snuggles up to Uncle Murray, but in Bad Kitty's overactive imagination Uncle Murray is a cat-eating ogre. She tries hiding from him, but he "finds her" every time (and she scares the bejesus out of him each time she spazzes). Bad Kitty finally escapes for a chase around the neighborhood. When it ends back at home, Uncle Murray's had enough! DTtente is achieved, and as usual Bad Kitty's surprise on her people's return is anything but a reward. Bruel's third chapter-book–length Bad Kitty tale includes more pussycat hijinks and googly-eyed kitty freak-outs. Uncle Murray's questions about cat fears are answered with actual facts, and a list of phobias follows in an appendix. A few lapses in the frenetic pace won't keep fans from enjoying this and looking forward to the promised sequel. 2010, Neal Porter/Roaring Brook, 160 pp., $13.99. Category: Graphic hybrid fiction.
