Bad Kitty for President

Bad Kitty has decided to run for President of the neighborhood kitty group because she is annoyed by the stray cats in the area. Uncle Murray tries to teach Kitty about politics and election rules, but she has to learn some lessons the hard way.

This is a well-timed release with the presidential election coming up later this year. The election information may be better geared to third or even fourth graders and older. This will likely disappoint Bad Kitty's younger fans. There are also at least two incidents where the author includes a group of symbols to replace a curse word. Kids will ask what those symbols are supposed to mean (and some adults may ask themselves why the author didn't choose some other way to express those particular thoughts).
