"As Marciano is descended from Ludwig Bemelmans, so might Alexander Baddenfield be descended from Madeline's nemesis-turned-friend Pepito 'The Bad Hat.'"* Alexander Baddenfield is a horrible boy--a really horrible boy--who is the last in a long line of lying, thieving scoundrels. One day, Alexander has an astonishing idea. Why not transplant the nine lives from his cat into himself? Suddenly, Alexander has lives to spare, and goes about using them up, attempting the most outrageous feats he can imagine. Only when his lives start running out, and he is left with only one just like everyone else, does he realize how reckless he has been. With its wickedly funny story and equally clever illustrations, this is dark humor at its most delicious. *Review from "School LIbrary Journal"

Praise for The 9 Lives of Alexander Baddenfield "Deliciously wicked"--Booklist "Fun for a sophisticated reader, with puns, anagrams, and good-natured satirical potshots"--The Horn Book "There's devilish humor to be found..."--Publishers Weekly
