Distraught by the paucity of available cat food, Bad Kitty—who has been good—rifles through the kitchen only to find an alphabet’s worth of inedible food. Going bad is the only way to show her displeasure—“clawing the curtains” and “zeroing the zinnias,” for example. Will the results of a shopping trip that includes “turtle turnovers” satisfy? Vanessa Williams narrates at a good clip yet giving listeners time to pore over the illustrations. Her enthusiasm for Bad Kitty’s escapades is evident in moments of opera singing, kissing, and disgust at certain available foods like “parsnips, oh no!” Her crisp enunciation emphasizes Bruel’s use of the alphabet and repetition. On additional tracks the author reads his book and, in a video, creates a new story with a third-grade class. A.R. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2012]
