Book and CD review: Bad Kitty

Seattle decided to have "real winter" this week, and since most of us in Seattle are not equipped for actual accumulations of snow, that meant lots of time inside. Thankfully, I had recently received a number of items to review, so we stayed fairly busy at home while we were snowbound. One of the things that kept us entertained was a book called Bad Kitty, and the CD that came along with it. In case you've not heard of Bad Kitty, here's a bit about it:

From the creator of The New York Times bestseller Boing! comes the riotous story of a cat gone berserk -- four times over and in alphabetical order each time. Kitty is not happy when she's told that her favorite foods are all gone and all that's left are Asparagus, Beets, Cauliflower, Dill...and 22 other equally unappealing vegetables. So she: Ate my homework, Bit grandma, Clawed the curtains, Damaged the dishes, and so on, through Z. Only when tastier things arrive (An Assortment of Anchovies, Buffalo Burritos, Chicken Cheesecake...) does she Apologize to Grandma.
The CD that comes along with this book has several tracks- the book being read beautifully by Vanessa Williams, another track of her reading with sounds indicating when to turn the page (very handy for the non-readers!) and one track of the author reading Bad Kitty to a group of kids.  My kids wanted to listen to them all, and laughed along with the book and its fabulous illustrations and silly story each time. 

If you're looking for something to keep your kids entertained this winter, definitely check out this book and CD set!

Disclosure: I received this book and CD set to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
