Diary of a Killer Cat by Anne Fine

Book Description

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. "Anne Fine knows how to make readers laugh". (Guardian).

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » So hang me. I killed the bird. For pity's sake, I'm a cat. It's practically my job to go creeping around the garden after sweet little eensy-weensy birdy-pies. . . . " Tuffy, the cat of the title, enjoys the funeral his owner Ellie and her parents hold for the bird the next day. This doesn't stop him from bringing a dead mouse to them the following day. Then he goes much too far, or so his family thinks, when he drags in Thumper the rabbit from next door. Ellie and the family spiff up the corpse and put it back in the cage only to find Thumper had died of natural causes, rather than at the claws of Tuffy. Published in Britain in 1994, Fine's take on the urban legend dubbed "The Hare Dryer" is made all the more fun by giving the telling of the tale to the supposed perpetrator. 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. (Fiction. 7-10) (Kirkus Reviews)
