More About the Author

Anne Fine leads a double life as an author. Of her eight novels for adult readers, she describes seven as black comedies and the first, The Killjoy, as simply 'dead black'. These adult novels cause readers to squirm with mingled horror and delight as she peels away the layers in all too familiar family relationships, exposing the tangled threads and conflicts beneath. It's therefore perhaps not surprising that Anne has openly expressed astonishment at the fact that murder in the domestic setting is not more common.
A great favourite for discussions in reading groups, Anne Fine's work has been published in over forty-five languages. Despite this, she remains best known in her home country, Britain, as a writer principally for children. She has twice won both the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Awards, the Guardian Children's Book Prize and numerous other prizes and awards. She was the second Children's Laureate from 2001-3, is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and was awarded an OBE for services to children's literature.
Anne Fine is an entertaining and engaging speaker on the subject of books and reading, and is in demand the world over for her tireless enthusiasm, common sense approach to literacy, and for the deliciously wicked humour that permeates all her writing.

A lovely, irreverent look at the mind of a cat - in French. The text is very funny and the drawings are hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful, Dark, Very Funny 23 April 2010
By dennis wentraub - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I recently found this French language translation while on vacation in a French bookstore in the Caribbean - what a treat! If you are a beginning student of French, you will adore this book and read it more than once. It is a children's book for adults. I cannot pass judgment on the faithfulness of this translation by Veronique Haitse to Anne Fine's original (in English), but I promise that you will relish this "journal" so devilishly illustrated by Veronique Deiss.

Tuffy is our mischievous hero, notre chat assassin, who tells us in a short, week-long diary of his deeds. Tuffy is smart - too clever for his owners who include the quick-to-weep Ellie "une vraie fontaine" of tears. About an ill-fated bird, Tuffy is so innocent! What is one to do when that "little ball of feathers throws itself into my mouth?" But the story turns on the death of a neighborhood rabbit - the beloved Thumper - and Tuffy's possible involvement - "lapinicide avec premeditation". And a Saturday morning visit to the veterinarian is a predictable and laughable disaster. You will have fun with this book!
