KIRKUS REVIEW

Bruel brings back Bad Kitty and her “present” (Puppy) from Bad Kitty (2005). Poor Puppy—“Poor, poor Puppy. Poor, poor, poor, poor, POOR Puppy!”—his best friend Kitty won’t play with him, so he goes in search of toys to keep him occupied. He finds an ever-increasing number of items (in alphabetical order) from one Airplane <\b>to 26 Zoo <\b>animals. Kitty only becomes interested when he finds her Old <\b>cat toys under the couch. She spends the remainder of the alphabet trying to get her squeaky mouse away from him. After all that play, Puppy’s tuckered out. He goes to sleep and dreams his way through the alphabet again, and across the globe. He dreams of Apple<\b>-bobbing in Antarctica <\b>to Zig<\b>-zagging in Zimbabwe<\b>—all with Kitty, of course. Back-to-back runs through the alphabet have never been so much fun, and the pictures are all jammed with things to count. Just as clever, energetic and full of attitude as the first. (Picture book. 3-9)
