Melissa " "Moore (Booklist)
With their trademark wit, Bruel and his bad Kitty are back. This time Kitty is running for president of the Neighborhood Cat Coalition. Old Kitty s two terms in office are up, and a successor is needed. Kitty agrees to run only because she is annoyed by all the strays in the neighborhood. From primaries to debate skills, from the impact of the media to voter registration, Bruel walks young readers through all the steps in the U. S. election process in text and black-and-white illustrations. All just in time for the 2012 elections." Grades 3-5

Shirley Nelson (Children's Literature)
Old Kitty has served two terms as President of the Neighborhood Cat Club. Frustrated at all of the stray cats invading the neighborhood, Kitty decides to run for President. However, Kitty does not follow advice and alienates everyone by misbehaving while campaigning. This very funny book is a great way for young readers to learn about the process of electing a president. Through humorous text and cartoon like illustrations, key elements are explained. Readers will learn about primaries, caucuses, campaign ads, debates, and voting. When Kitty s campaign is just too dirty, Edna Prunelove steps in with a sweet puppy story to protect innocent readers from inappropriate material. Uncle Murray appears occasionally with lists of fun facts about elections. Chatty Kitty informs the reader of interesting presidential cat trivia. The black and white illustrations enable the reader to focus on Kitty s crazy expressions providing a delightful lesson about the political system for young people. The glossary provides witty definitions of political terms. 2012, Roaring Brook Press/ Holtzbrinck, $13.99. Ages 5 to 9.

Zenaida Walton (HeartOfTexas)
Bad Kitty is at it again. She has decided that she wants to run for president of her local Neighborhood Cat Club. The current president, Old Kitty, is leaving office after serving two full terms. This is the longest any kitty can be allowed to serve as president. Bad Kitty has had enough of all of the stray cats wandering into her neighborhood and she figures if she is president she can get rid of them. The only problem is, Kitty is not sure how to even start the process of running for president. Join Bad Kitty for a very humorous adventure as she attempts to run for president of the Neighborhood Cat Club. This is an appealing book with great illustrations. Fiction. Grades 4-6. 2012, Neal Porter/Roaring Brook, 142p., $13.99. Ages 9 to 12.
