    A lot of adults enjoy the "Bad Kitty" series, but this was a little meh for me. I'm sure children will probably enjoy it a lot more than I did, but it is still fun to look at the illustrations.

    Using papers and pencils and brushes and ink, some rulers and a marker that’s pink, anyone can make a comic. Even Kitty can, who sleeps in his bed, with the help of a cat with a hat on his head, along with quirky tips in rhyme from Bruel, referencing Dr. Sueus’ The Cat in the Hat. The play between rhyming narrative and funny dialogue makes this how-to more than just an activity book in the “Bad Kitty” series.

Although these tips are very basic for comic making, they are a good start for the Early Reader doodling with a pencil and paper. Bruel encourages readers to make copies of the exercise pages for practice, especially if the pages are from a library book. If that reader wanted to try a higher level of comic activities, Comic Strips: Create Your Own Comic Strips from Start to Finish in the “Art for Kids” series by Art Roche might be an option for ages 8 and up. Overall recommended for the beginning comic dabbler. So I personally thought the cat wearing the hat was creepy, but funny and friendly creepy haha. I think some kids will enjoy this book.

    What the world needs now is not just love but more Bad Kitty books. If creator Nick Bruel has his way, that's exactly what will happen. In this lively how-to book, Strange Kitty arrives at Kitty's house and teaches her--and the book's readers--how to draw comics. Covering the caption, thought and word balloons, panels, sound effects, and panels with storylines to get readers thinking about how to finish a cartoon, the book is filled with encouragement, humor, and best of all, Bad Kitty with her What the world needs now is not just love but more Bad Kitty books.

Fans of Bad Kitty will appreciate the opportunity to continue Kitty's adventures while branching out in their own creative directions, thanks to the examples and pages that Bruel encourages them to copy for their own use. With Bad Kitty's help, just about anyone could become a cartoonist. (Well, maybe not, but they'll have lots of fun trying to become one.) Gosh! I wish this book had been around when I was a youngster. I'd have worn it out.

    Bad Kitty Makes Comics by Nick Bruel – Non-Fiction- This is an absolutely fantastic book packed with “copy me please” pages for teaching about writing, creating comics, drawing and so much more. In addition to the “how to” element, there is additionally a hilarious story and comics running throughout. Highly recommended. Side note: This feels like those classic old comic books with paper that is a little less strong. I only have a concern with the length of time this book will hold up in normal Bad Kitty Makes Comics by Nick Bruel – Non-Fiction- This is an absolutely fantastic book packed with “copy me please” pages for teaching about writing, creating comics, drawing and so much more.

The cost isn’t too high considering, but that’s the only thing that gave me pause. I think this is a perfect book for a personal gift to a student who loves to do art or loves Bad Kitty.

    I've always been interested in comic books and graphic novels, and can't help but think that if I only had this awesome Bad Kitty book as a kid, I would be a famous comic book artist today! Okay, maybe I wouldn't be famous, but I would have been less afraid of trying it on my own. I also wish Nick Bruel had published this book when my kids were little (instead of being 17 and 19 year olds); they would have loved this as much as I do.
