Bad Kitty by Nick Bruel ’83. The rambunctious , constantly reprimanded crowd will love Bad Kitty. She’s not so bad really, -- just doesn’t like veggies and may have a bit of an impulse control issue. There is a very long list of Bad Kitty books . This one, the first, engages us with the alphabet. Let’s take a random letter, say B. Well, B is for Beets, one of those nutritious foods that sends Bad Kitty into a tizzy of revolt. It could make her Bite grandma, unless she is placated with Buffalo Burritos. Kids will have fun wandering through the alphabet (four times) with Bad Kitty. At Friends we would never have called her Bad Kitty – self-fulfilling prophesy and bad for her self-esteem. Make room for irreverence; it makes the kids laugh.
