The Kidliterati Ten is an interview series with young readers. We ask them about a favorite book and hope that you enjoy their answers. Tell us a little about yourself: what is your first name, how old are you, and what is your favorite flavor of ice cream? My name is Stella. I'm 8 years old. My favorite flavor of ice cream is strawberry.
What book did you read and why did you choose it? I read Puppy's Big Day. I picked it because I love dogs and cats.
Can you describe this book in one word? Puppies!
What was your favorite part of this story? I loved it when Uncle Murray's pants fell down, and he was wearing heart underwear!
If you had a problem similar to the main character's problem, what would you do? I would try to escape the pound!
What would you say to your best friend to convince them to read this book? It's really good, and crazy things happen in it.
What do you think about the book's cover? It's funny! I like Puppy's drool.
Would you want to read another book about these characters? Why or why not? Yes. Because Puppy and Kitty are funny together.
Can you name another book that reminds you of this one? Bad Kitty Runs for President, or any of the Bad Kitty books.
If you could ask the author one question about this book what would it be? Why did you choose to write about Puppy and Kitty?
From an interview author and illustrator Nick Bruel did in 2017: "I was at home contemplating unique titles I had never seen before. Bad Kitty came to me, and when I asked myself what a cat could do that would be so bad, I came up with so many ideas." And according to his website, Bad Kitty is modeled after a cat Mr. Bruel had as a child.
Thank you for the interview, Stella!
