The Cat Who Came in Off the Roof

Publisher: Pushkin Children’s

Tibble is a reporter, but he is about to be sacked because all his newspaper stories are about cats!

A young woman is chased up a tree by a dog. Tibble rescues her and discovers she was once a cat called Minou. She knows all the local cats and through them she discovers the neighbourhood's human news. Tibble has found the means to keep his job.

Soon Minou uncovers a story of major injustice, but Tibble can't print it without proof. Can the cats come up with the facts? Will Minou turn back into a cat, and does she really want to?

Written by a famous Dutch author, this is a humorous, surreal and satisfying story with an old fashioned feel.
