Bad Kitty is visiting Doylestown in promotion of her new book, “Drawn to Trouble. ” Children will have a chance to get their photo taken with Bad Kitty and receive free Kitty swag. 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. Ages 7-10, Reading level 2nd-5th
