About the Author
Praise For Happy Birthday, Bad Kitty…
“It's Bad Kitty's unapologetic, curmudgeon nature that delivers the laugh-out-loud funny.” —Publishers Weekly “Just plain hysterical. . . . Fun for all, especially fans.” —Kirkus Reviews
“[A] mix of wry story and high-impact cartoon-style art.” —Booklist“Bad Kitty is back for another adventure, and children who have met this cantankerous feline in her previous outings know that a typical birthday celebration just won’t do. . . . 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
