        September 26, 2011
        “ ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the city/ Not a creature was stirring... except for Bad Kitty.” Riffing on Clement Clarke Moore’s “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” Bruel takes readers through the alphabet as his crazy-comical cat wrecks the holiday (“The Eggnog was Ended./ The Fruitcake was Flung”). After a scolding, Kitty runs away in the big city only to be rescued by a kind soul who knows a few things about Christmas spirit. Kitty’s zany antics, three romps through the alphabet, and a warm reunion make this a gift indeed for Bad Kitty fans. Ages 4–up.
