The Diary of a Killer Cat

“OKAY, OKAY. So hang me. I killed the bird. For pity’s sake, I’m a cat. It’s practically my job to go creeping round the garden after sweet little eensy-weensy birdy-pies that can hardly fly from one hedge to another.”

Tuffy the monstrous mog is in BIG trouble! On Monday he killed a bird. On Tuesday it was a mouse. Now it’s Wednesday, and he’s dragged a dead rabbit through the catflap. But when his horror-struck owner Ellie realises that it’s their neighbour’s pet rabbit Thumper, pandemonium breaks loose… Stuffed with vivid illustrations and killer chuckles, this crafty comic caper is an absolute hoot.

    The diary of the killer cat allows you to get into the mind of a killer cat. So you get to see the explanation for the mouse he brought home, the bird and the somewhat unfortunate rabbit

  • I jsut thought this book was so comical, and can remember reading it in the back garden, and imagining our main coon prowling around, just like the cat in the story. The way the storys written, I loved everything about it, and I just think it’s one of those one time stories that really make you go into fits of giggles.
