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.

From Booklist:

Gr. 2-4. The author of Alias Madam Doubtfire (1988) and other popular stories writes with the same delicious wickedness for a younger audience in these two illustrated chapter books, originally published in Britain. Pets are the narrators here, and they speak with venom and spirit about their owners. In Diary, Tuffy the cat is in trouble for killing a bird ("So hang me. I killed the bird. For pity's sake, I'm a cat"), but did Tuffy also get the rabbit next door? Mystery is woven into the sly pet story, and Cox's black-and-white artwork shows the hissing, spitting cat standing up to a furious dad and a "sniveling" kid. The hero of Notso Hotso is a mangy dog, Anthony, who is treated with disgust when he gets a bad itch ("in places my bum was raw"). After his owners have him shaved, the once gruesome, yucky mongrel feels suddenly powerful and confident--because he looks like a scary lion. Ross' line drawings, full of action and expression, effectively capture the transformation. Both books will be great for reading aloud and reading alone. Hazel Rochman
