Bad Kitty’s in Trouble Again!

Bad Kitty just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. In her latest chapter book, Bad Kitty: Drawn to Trouble, the author, Nick Bruel, draws her into the book while explaining to readers how to create a story. Using Bad Kitty as an example was a great idea that doesn’t go as planned. Bad Kitty starts to take control of the story—deleting characters, erasing parts of her own body, and even changing the ending!



In keeping with the book’s interactive, “hands-on” approach to story-writing, Scholastic Reading Club has put together the Bad Kitty: Drawn to Trouble Contest. This competition invites second and third grade students to draw a picture of Bad Kitty making trouble and then write a short story about it.


The grand prize winner of this contest will win a classroom visit with the creator of the Bad Kitty series, Nick Bruel. Ten runners-up will win a Bad Kitty classroom library, a congratulatory letter from Nick Bruel, and Bad Kitty pencils for every student in their class!


Send entries by 2/11/14 to: Bad Kitty Drawn to Trouble Contest, P.O. Box 714, New York, NY, 10013-0714.


Visit our website to learn more about the Bad Kitty: Drawn to Trouble Contest and to gain access to a reproducible template that students can use as their entry form.
