When Cats Go Wrong is more than just another cat book. Written to the tune of a tango, Norm Hacking's song provides the perfect framework for a spirited look at life with a wicked cat. When a young boy comes across a stray cat on the street, he brings it home to his mother and begs her to keep it. She agrees, warning him that if the cat gets in any trouble, out he goes. Her words prove prophetic as Hell Kitty dips his paws into the goldfish bowl, sharpens his claws on the couch, and snacks on the butter. What to do? The author's witty rhyming text and Cynthia Nugent's vibrant illustrations based on French dance hall posters give energy and life to this captivating tale.

Everyone has experienced the naughty kitty in one way or another, but no one has set down the dirty deeds in rhyme and song. The included CD is intoned by a low voiced songster and backed up by a tango played on bandoneon. These humorous lyrics are made to be shared with other cat lovers!
