Book Description

7 May 2009 The Killer Cat

'Okay, okay. So stick my head in a holly bush.'

Tuffy knows what he likes. And he doesn't like the 'art' that Ellie's mum brings home from her new classes. So what's a cat to do?

A few scratches here just happen to shred a painting. A nudge there somehow slips a vase off a shelf. Dad hope a horribly lumpy clay pot will be next, but Tuffy's having none of it. The killer cat will go his own sweet way!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun - Tuffy is back! 29 Aug 2008
By Karen W
Tuffy is back - and wins the battleground for himself as ever. I might be an adult but these Killer Cat books really make me laugh. Tuffy reminds me of a cat I once had - I loved this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting children to read 24 May 2013
By P. Dunn
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having purchased another in this series as a gift for a family member was delighted at the response of the child who asked for more. Anything that can persuade a child to read is worth its weight in gold - these books make you laugh as well.
