9780140369311: The Diary of a Killer Cat (The Killer Cat)

Everyone loves the wickedly dry sense of humour of The Diary of a Killer Cat by Anne Fine.

Okay, Okay. So hang me. I killed the bird. For pity's sake, I'm a cat.

Poor Ellie is horrified when Tuffy drags a dead bird into the house. Then a mouse. But Tuffy can't understand what all the fuss is about.

Who on earth will be the next victim to arrive through the cat-flap? Can soft-hearted Ellie manage to get her beloved pet to change his wild, wild ways before he ends up in even deeper trouble?

The hilarious antics of Tuffy and his family as told by the killer cat himself.

Review:

"Cox's cartoon illustrations, complete with talk balloons, add to the wicked humor.  Readers will hope for an American release of the sequel, "Return of the Killer Cat.""  --"Kirkus Reviews""" "The author of "Alias Madam Doubtfire" and other popular stories writes with the same delicious wickedness for a younger audience."  --"Booklist""" "Funny throughout. . .the black-and-white sketches, some full page, bring movement and personality to the characters."  "--School Library Journal""" "Wry first-person story of a not-so-fearsome feline.  Fans of this cheeky fellow will meet an equally likeable narrator . . . in Fine's "Notso Hotso"."  --"Publisher's Weekly""" "The sardonic British humor . . . and hilarious surprise twist at the end makes this and Fine's similar dog's journal, "Notso Hotso", excellent choices for kids ready to tackle a chapter book."  --"Reading Today"
