School Library Journal - 01/01/2018 POPGr 2–4—Bad Kitty returns in a complicated tale of amnesia, mistaken identity, and camping fun. After Kitty's bowl hits her on the head, she believes she is a dog and imitates everything Puppy does. Baby notices how Kitty is acting and says, "Kitty no cad! Kitty dog!" but no one will listen. Puppy goes to camp, and Kitty tags along for sing-alongs, campfires, games of fetch, and swimming in the lake. Even camp director Uncle Murray believes that Kitty is a small dog. Interspersed throughout are fun facts from Uncle Murray about why dogs are better at fetch or like to swim more than cats, and why cats like catnip. Fans of the series will love this newest adventure. The role reversal of Kitty wearing Puppy out with demands to play and the antics of the dogs at camp create plenty of hilarious moments. Bruel's images of Kitty with unfocused eyes, droopy ears, and tongue hanging in classic dog fashion complement the uproarious story. VERDICT A seamless melding of text and illustrations. A must-have for early chapter book readers.—Suzanne Costner, Fairview Elementary School, Maryville, TN - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
