Happy Birthday Bad Kitty by Nick Bruel

Reviewed by LXR
5/5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads:

It's Bad Kitty's birthday, and you're invited! Bad Kitty's second illustrated novel is packed with deadpan humor, rich tidbits of cat information -- and even some suspense! Who took Kitty's presents? Why are Kitty's friends so bizarre? Readers will laugh out loud at Kitty's feline mood swings, and they'll be touched by the heartwarming visit from a surprise guest.

My Review:

What I like about this book was when Bad Kitty messed up the party!!!!  That part was hilarious! 

I like this book because it is really funny and quick fun to read. 

I can relate to this book because Bad Kitty got a present she didn’t like and I’ve had that happen too but I appreciated the gift anyway.

I’d recommend this book to 5+ years old and anyone who enjoys funny or some may say hilarious books. There is a lot of laughing out loud.

Bad Kitty *vs* Uncle Murray: The Uproar at the Front Door by Nick Bruel

Reviewed by LXR5/5 stars

Synopsis from Goodreads: 

Kitty’s owners are taking a week off and leaving Kitty and Puppy at home. So who’s going to watch them? Good ol’ Uncle Murray, star of the Fun Facts feature of previous Kitty books—the guy you thought knew everything about cats. Think again! It isn’t long before Uncle Murray is driven to near madness by shenanigans of epic proportion

My Review:

I like this book because it was HILARIOUS! 

My favorite part of this book is every part! I laughed through the whole book!

I can relate to Uncle Murray in this book because Bad Kitty ran out the door on him and I’ve had my dog do that to me. Its frustrating.

I’d recommend this book to 4+ (If they can read and understand it) and anyone who likes a hilarious book.  For me it was quick and funny read

Magic Tree House: Stage Fright on a Summer Night by Mary Pope Osborne

Review by LXR
5/5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads:

The show must go on!

That's what Jack and Annie learn when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to Elizabethan England. There they meet William Shakespeare himself—one of the greatest writers of all time! But Mr. Shakespeare's having a hard time with some of the actors in his latest show. Are Jack and Annie ready to make a big entrance? Or will it be curtains for Shakespeare?

My Review:

This book was a great book that had some fairy tales in it and I learned about William Shakespeare. Who was a famous play writer. 

My favorite part was when everything turned out okay for Jack.

I’ve had stage fright before because I don’t like reading out loud so I understand how Jack felt and I liked reading about how he dealt with his stage fright.

Little Dude....

So, My little dude wanted to try reviewing books for kids. He's a voracious reader. His "to be read' pile might put mine to shame.

I'll also contribute to this blog as well since I read to them many kid friendly books.
