    Four stars: A funny, and educational read that will appeal to both young girls and boys.

    What happens when Bad Kitty isn't acting exactly cat like? He is sent to take a test to prove that he is really cat. What follows is mayhem and hilarity as Bad Kitty, Chatty Kitty and Uncle Murray, who stumbles in by accident while looking to renew his driver's license, learn what it is to be a cat. When they think they know everything, thanks to the teaching of Strange Kitty, they learn they must take a test. The test is to be administered by a reprensative from ProTest....errr.... TestPro, who isn't exactly an honest test monitor, and he might just have a secret agenda.

    This is a funny tale that follows Bad Kitty as he unwillingly is forced to take a test to prove he is a cat. As an adult, I appreciated the fun illustrations, the funny puns and innuendos that kids will miss and the hilarity of poor Uncle Murray trying to get his liscense. It is a wild and wacky tale, with a great take home message at the end about taking tests.

    The only slight niggle I have with this book, is that the author occasionally goes off on tangents and sprouts facts and information that is way over younger readers' heads. If you are reading the book you can stop and explain, but if a younger reader is reading on their own, they won't get it or they will skip it. The author sometimes forget who his target audience is. This book is recommended for readers 7-11, but I would say it will be better for the older end. My daughter is eight and she loves the books, but she doesn't get all the grown up facts that are tossed in. Still it is a fun book to read with your kids.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own, and I was not compensated for this review.

    Bad Kitty’s back in his 9th chapter book adventure, and this time, it’s a doozy (isn’t it always?). The Society of Cat Aptitude has decided that Kitty just isn’t cutting it as a cat, so she needs to take a Cat Aptitude Test to determine whether or not she still deserves to be considered a cat. Kitty shows up to take her required course and test, but things… are not exactly business as usual, starting with the instructor. Poor Uncle Murray shows up, thinking he’s there to renew his driver’s licen

    Bad Kitty’s back in his 9th chapter book adventure, and this time, it’s a doozy (isn’t it always?). The Society of Cat Aptitude has decided that Kitty just isn’t cutting it as a cat, so she needs to take a Cat Aptitude Test to determine whether or not she still deserves to be considered a cat. Kitty shows up to take her required course and test, but things… are not exactly business as usual, starting with the instructor. Poor Uncle Murray shows up, thinking he’s there to renew his driver’s license – maybe he’s spent enough time with Kitty to qualify as a cat, too!

    I love Bad Kitty! My sons introduced her to me back when they were little guys, and I’ve laughed along with her antics ever since. She’s the star of picture books, chapter books, 8×8″ paperback picture books, board and activity books, making her a household name. Kids come into my library asking for Bad Kitty books about as often as they do Babymouse, Goosebumps, and the Wimpy Kid; she’s kind of a big deal. Her latest adventure is filled with the usual laughs, wacky plot, and black and white art. Part Wile E. Coyote and part Bugs Bunny, this latest story puts kitty and company into a classroom with an instructor that’s working with a hidden agenda, and Uncle Murray, who has a habit of blundering into burgeoning catastrophes, is here for additional laughs.

    You don’t need to have much familiarity with the series to begin enjoying the books; you can just jump on with any one of them, incuding Bad Kitty Takes the Test. Intermediate readers and reluctant readers will get their Bad Kitty fix with this latest entry into the series.

    I wanted this book to read to my grandson. I read it and really liked it and I know he will next year at Christmas. I am going to collect some of the other Bad Kitty books. They will be a staple bedtime story, I am sure. Thank you for the opportunity to become acquainted with Nick Bruel and Bad Kitty.

    What a joy this book was. I am pretty sure I have said that with every Bad Kitty book I have read but Nick Bruel never fails to give us a fun book full of hilarity, facts, and at least one important lesson to be learned.

    I love the concept of Kitty getting her Cat License revoked for 'bad' cat behavior and having to go through the process of getting it back by taking a test. My girls obviously wouldn't get it but I had to chuckle at it all because it reminded me of having to sit though defensive

    What a joy this book was. I am pretty sure I have said that with every Bad Kitty book I have read but Nick Bruel never fails to give us a fun book full of hilarity, facts, and at least one important lesson to be learned.

    I love the concept of Kitty getting her Cat License revoked for 'bad' cat behavior and having to go through the process of getting it back by taking a test. My girls obviously wouldn't get it but I had to chuckle at it all because it reminded me of having to sit though defensive driving class after getting a speeding ticket, (way back when and whoops) I also loved all the other little aspects that they may not yet catch on to as young children but that I loved and kept me entertained. The idea that there is a pencil company with plans to take over the 'world' though standardized testing, the lessons that standardized testing isn't beneficial to learning or proof of learning.

    The chickens, the girls and I may always side eye any chicken we come across from now on, Uncle Murray, poor fellow just can help but find himself in the thick of things every book, and Kitty herself who isn't really so bad but man the poor 'girl' just can't seem to catch a break. I mean what kitty doesn't love a game of hide and seek or tag with birds? There are just so many reasons to fall in love with Bad Kitty and I hope we'll continue to see more witty, hilarious, educational misadventures for this little cat and her 'friends'.

    I will make one note and that is, my oldest daughter who is 11 loves all the facts and information, but my 7 year old doesn't quite get it all. That doesn't change the younger child's enjoyment of the book at all but it DOES mean that whether you are 7, 11, or 42 (whistles) you can find something interesting and fun in this series!

    If you're readers love books like Dork Diaries, Diaries of a Wimpy Kid, or Terrible Two they will love Bad Kitty and teachers and parents will as well. I guarantee if nothing else, you will learn something you never knew in each book!

    ~ HAPPY READING ~

    Humorous, beautifully drawn, and chock-full of surprises, Bad Kitty Takes the Test shows strange, ironic twists at every turn. With a surpassingly perfect demonstration of unhelpful facts and random details provided in quizzes, under a different, unfamiliar perspective. Loveable, funny, and with a strong connection to chickens in multiple scenes, this book truly illustrates real-life situations in tests, minus the real-life part.

    In this newest installment of the popular Bad Kitty series, Kitty gets her cat license revoked due to a number of "shameful un-catlike embarrassments". In order to remain a cat, she must take a course that culminates in an all-important test. The bulk of the book shows Kitty in the classroom along with three classmates. The story is a pretty transparent commentary on the excessive amount of test-prep and test-taking that takes place in the actual education system. Despite the fact that this book

    In this newest installment of the popular Bad Kitty series, Kitty gets her cat license revoked due to a number of "shameful un-catlike embarrassments". In order to remain a cat, she must take a course that culminates in an all-important test. The bulk of the book shows Kitty in the classroom along with three classmates. The story is a pretty transparent commentary on the excessive amount of test-prep and test-taking that takes place in the actual education system. Despite the fact that this book is making a serious point about a real-life issue, there are enough feline antics, wacky scenarios, and ridiculous dialogue to make this book just as silly and fun as its predecessors. The fact that the antagonists are chickens keeps the tone light.

    Every teacher and student that has to take or give a test anytime in their lives should read this book! Hilarious!

    This book was really hilarious. Some of it was so ridiculous that it bordered on being too much so. However, as I was reading it with two children who loved every moment of it, the silliness was great. This definitely wasn't the best book from this series, but it wasn't the worst either.
