'Okay, okay. So slap my teensy little paws. I messed up - big time.' Tuffy can't wait for Ellie and the family to go away on holiday.

The Tulip Touchwon the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year Award; Goggle-Eyes won the Guardian Children's Fiction Award and the Carnegie Medal; Flour Babies won the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year; and Bill's New Frock won a Smarties Prize. Anne Fine was named Children's Laureate in 2001 and was awarded an OBE in 2003.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3–5—Tuffy the cat narrates this clever sequel to Fine's The Diary of a Killer Cat (Farrar, 2006). The tabby thinks he will get to do whatever he wants while his human family is on vacation-"A whole week of sunning myself in the flower beds"-but his plans are foiled when the vicar comes to cat-sit. Comedic errors abound when the man tries to get the cat down from a tree: Tuffy flies into a soft basket belonging to Ellie's best friend next door, who has been praying for a cat. Not recognizing the pet, she takes him in as a pampered companion. Tuffy is loath to reveal his true identity; he endures being called Janet and wears a doll's frilly nightie, all so he can escape the austere clergyman and enjoy the neighbor's delicious cooking. Eventually, he can't continue the charade and an overweight Tuffy is found among the shredded remains of the nightgown, with no sign of Janet. The cat is triumphant when his owner's mother arrives home and catches the vicar at the exact moment he loses his patience with the shenanigans. Black-and-white cartoon illustrations are mostly merely serviceable, except for the perfectly captured surly expressions that amplify the protagonist's personality.—Debbie Stewart Hoskins, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI
