Bad Kitty is decidedly Grinch-like about Christmas, and she has an alphabet of reasons why she’s unhappy and acts she has committed against the household’s Christmas preparations to show it. After her poor behavior, the family takes her and Poor Puppy off to see Uncle Murray on Christmas Day, only to watch frantically as she, and then Poor Puppy, escape from the car! The ensuing events are played out in detail—Bad Kitty’s story is in full color while behind the scenes Poor Puppy is working on his own agenda in muted shades of blue. This is a great way to help readers keep the story threads running in parallel lines! Eventually Bad Kitty is befriended by an old lady who takes her home and demonstrates to her the true meaning of Christmas. But that’s not the end of the story. Will Grinchy Bad Kitty turn into a Christmas angel? You’ll have to grab a copy of this book to find out!
