Review: Bad Kitty Does Not Like Candy

Bad Kitty Does Not Like Candy

Ages 2-5

My rating: 4 stars

Nick Bruel, once again, delights readers with the crazy antics of Kitty, in Bad Kitty Does Not Like Candy, one of his new paperback picture books.

As usual, Kitty thinks she knows what’s up. That candy on the counter looks delicious, even though Kitty has never tried candy before. It’s got to be better than fish, and it’s got to be better than walrus. The pesky human who keeps insisting that candy is bad for cats can’t possibly be right. Without a doubt, Kitty will have that candy on the counter. But, is Kitty ready for the consequences?

By far, my favorite spread in this book is the one where Kitty is dreaming of herself in a river of candy – all the candy in the world. But, the facial and bodily expressions of Kitty are hilarious throughout the entire book. Bad Kitty Does Not Like Candy is similar to the original Bad Kitty, but is a much simpler story without the alphabet learning. Still, it is a humorous tale that’s just right for precocious 2- to 5-year-olds and the adults who will be reading it over and over again.

Just remember, all Bad Kitty books are not alike (for a comprehensive list, click here.) This one is for the preschool audience. If you’re looking for something fun and full of shenanigans for your young reader, try something from Bruel’s chapter book collection, such as Bad Kitty vs Uncle Murray or Bad Kitty: Puppy’s Big Day
