Description

The phenomenally successful Bad Kitty series is purr-fect for fans of Dav Pilkey's Dog Man and Ben Clanton's Narwhal and Jelly series, reluctant readers, comic book fans, and cranky cats.

Bad Kitty will not be good until her owners cave and get her a cell phone in this next, full color chapter book in Nick Bruel's New York Times bestselling series.

Kitty has everything any cat could want—a warm bed, plenty of fresh litter, a machine that dispenses food whenever she wants! But Kitty isn't satisfied. She has her eye on something that will make her the happiest, most grateful cat in town.
Something all the other cats have but that her owners refuse to get her!
Something she desperately needs!
Kitty wants...a cell phone. And she can have one if she does all her chores with zero complaints.
But can she handle the responsibility? What do you think?

        December 1, 2021
        A craving for the latest tech leads to cat-astrophe in this new addition to the Bad Kitty series. With her heart set on owning a cellphone, anthropomorphic house cat Kitty plows through three solid months of chores without complaining before her owners reluctantly grant her fervent wish. Then things go rapidly downhill. She becomes obsessed with violent mobile games, gets catfished (no pun intended), divulges too much personal information online, becomes consumed with rage at cyberbullies, and grows listless from excessive screen time. Only after the intervention of a Sphynx cat named Strange Kitty and a monthlong technology fast enforced by her owners does Kitty come to understand that while smartphones are fun, they can also be a serious distraction from real life and true friends. Using a digestible graphic-novel format, the book tackles internet safety and digital media literacy with purr-fect aplomb. The "Uncle Murray's Fun Facts" section serves as a deep dive into the differences between facts and opinions, and many of Kitty's quirky feline behaviors ring true. It's unfortunate that the word lame--a disability-related term with negative connotations--is used by the internet trolls who deride the video Kitty makes and posts on "ViewTube." Occasional misstep aside, Kitty's tribulations provide ample fodder for this instructive and amusing tale. A hilarious but enlightening guide to the online world--the good, the bad, and the ugly. (Graphic novel. 6-9)
