The Killer Cat Strikes Back

(2 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Puffin

This is Tuffy's third adventure, in which he takes exception to Mum's art class, and ruins almost all of her new masterpieces. Unfortunately the one which the arrogant Tuffy refuses to break (because he's not prepared to help Dad) holds a secret which could change the family's life. What's more, Tuffy keeps chasing the boy next door when he tries to deliver an important note, and it's only when Tuffy begins to feel ashamed by his behaviour that everything turns out well.

Tuffy tells his own hilarious story, and Fine's short chapter-book shows careful observation of cat (and family) behaviour which proves to young readers that spiteful and selfish behaviour can lead to unhappiness for everyone unless we put it right.
