Nick Bruel is the author and illustrator of the phenomenally successful Bad Kitty picture books and chapter books, as well as other popular books for young readers. He has received the 2012 CBC Children's Choice Book Award, as well as several major state awards for his work. Nick lives near Westchester, NY with his wife, daughter and not-so-bad kitty, Esmeralda. When he is not visiting schools from coast to coast, he collects PEZ dispensers and grows tomatoes in his backyard.
In this seventh installment of the New York Times–bestselling series, Kitty encounters what may be her most formidable foe yet: her creator! Kitty soon learns that feline manipulation works both ways—especially when you're at the wrong end of your author's pencil. Along the way, Nick shows kids how a book is created, despite the frequent interruptions from you-know-who.

Praise for Bad Kitty Drawn to Trouble:* "Surprisingly (and sneakily) instructional, totally hilarious . . . and worth every penny." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Bruel’s sky’s-the-limit attitude will encourage boys and girls to use their imaginations and get writing." —Booklist "In this seventh installment in the series, readers are introduced to the process of writing and illustrating a book in a fun and humorous way." —School Library Journal Praise for Bad Kitty School Daze: "Bad Kitty’s legions of fans will not be disappointed." —Kirkus Reviews "As usual it’s Bad Kitty’s personality that rules the day." —Publishers Weekly Praise for Bad Kitty Meets the Baby: "Just plain hysterical. . . . Fun for all, especially fans." —Kirkus Reviews Praise for Bad Kitty vs. Uncle Murray: "The style gives the book a fast pace and adds to the comedic atmosphere. However, it’s Uncle Murray’s good-natured bumbling against Bad Kitty’s cranky craziness that will get the giggles going." —School Library Journal
