  1. There has been a long line of awful and obscenely wealthy Baddenfield men To say that the Baddenfield family had a checkered past is to insult innocent board games everywhere It is also inaccurate The lives of the Baddenfields were not checkered If their family tree had been a chessboard, their squares would all be black.Thankfully, none of them seem to live very long In fact, there s only one left 12 year old Alexander So how bad was Alexander Alexander always wanted to be a bully When on the f [...]

  4. Twelve year old Alexander comes from a long line of bad to the bone Baddenfields, all of whom died at an early age, possibly because of all the bad karma they have created for others After providing background about Alexander s family, the author describes how the wealthy young boy decides to have his cat s nine lives transplanted into his body, thus, allowing him to die and then have several second chances Despite the resistance of his faithful family retainer, Winterbottom, he finally finds a [...]


  5. Dark comedy for kids about a boy who is the last in a long line of tried and true baddies and who asks a quack doctor to implant his cat s nine lives into him so that he can live forever He proceeds to die in all kinds of dramatic and wild ways, attended by the last in a long line of loyal servants who is as cautious as his master is reckless Enjoyable for those who appreciate dark humor and THIS is the point of my review Daniel really enjoyed this book and suggested that my library book club re [...]


  6. Alexander Baddenfield is an anti hero a terrible boy at the end of a long line of despicable Baddenfield men, who have all died mercifully young No female Baddenfields or wives are ever mentioned and, considering that some of Alexander s ancestors died as young as 17, it seems they spawn asexually and all but raise themselves, with limited guidance of the likewise all male line of Winterbottoms who attend them Determined to escape the fate of all the Baddenfields before him, Alexander finds a ma [...]


  7. We read this aloud as a family The kids liked it, overall, but they were sad that Alexander died a bad kid I think this might be the first book they ve read where there was no redemption at the end My husband and I kept calling it their intro to goth The book is a tad darker than Lemony Snicket s books the death by bull scenes were a little too much for all of us My husband called the book morose, I called it morbid The kids got to learn what those words meant, so that s something Which reminds [...]





  8. It s the dark, witty style of Lemony Snicket, without the greatness Could have done with length one of the nine lives is one page long, which could have been hilarious, instead it felt rushed and investment in character development Was not much moved.



  9. I can t say really how I feel about this because I m not sure I m not surprised I bought it where I bought it It wasn t the greatest, but it wasn t the worst.Read for POPSugar 2018 Reading Challenge Book about death or grief.


  10. I read this with my daughter before bed She laughed a lot It s a cute little story with charming illustrations.


  11. Excellent premise and opening chapter the last Baddenfield he and his family really lived up to their name they were called the Baddenfield s for a reason comes up with a Great Idea which involves transplanting his cat s Shaddenfrood 8 extra lives into himself giving him a grand total of 9 lives After the ridiculously dangerous surgery works, Alexander lives his previously sheltered life s recklessly and preferably in the most outrageous ways Since Baddenfields have a history of dying young all [...]


  12. Alexander Baddenfield is a bad, bad boy He is filthy, stinking rich and a spoiled brat His faithful retainer, Winterbottom, is desperate to prevent Alexander from dying an early death like his ancestors But Alexander is as reckless as all the other Baddenfields and when he decides to remove his cat s extra eight lives and give them to himself with the help of a mad scientist, who had discovered that cats have extra stem cells in their belly buttons , he seizes the opportunity to live wildly and [...]


  13. After a weird and annoying first chapter I fear most kids won t have the patience for, it gets going fast The main character is horrible to the core, and steals his cats 9 lives which he promptly and mostly purposefully blows through.





  14. tries too hard to be like lemony Snicket, and doesn t quite make it It was interesting to see a bad protagonist dies without any real redemption Also, I m not a fan of lemony Snicket in the first place Wait Why did I even read this
