"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."" --"Kirkus Reviews""" "The author of "Alias Madam Doubtfire" and other popular stories writes with the same delicious wickedness for a younger audience." --"Booklist""" "Funny throughout. . .the black-and-white sketches, some full page, bring movement and personality to the characters." "--School Library Journal""" "Wry first-person story of a not-so-fearsome feline. Fans of this cheeky fellow will meet an equally likeable narrator . . . in Fine's "Notso Hotso"." --"Publisher's Weekly""" "The sardonic British humor . . . and hilarious surprise twist at the end makes this and Fine's similar dog's journal, "Notso Hotso", excellent choices for kids ready to tackle a chapter book." --"Reading Today" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It was a bit shorter than I expected but I can still recommend it without any reservations.
One thing I didn't like: it opens with a forthright "So hang me" at the start of one of the cat's confessions. Not entirely comfortable with talking about hanging or explaining what it means to young readers/listeners, and I think that should have been edited out and replaced with a lesser proposed punishment! But otherwise, great fun.
