The hilarious confessions of a ferocious feline
Poor Ellie is horrified when her cat, Tuffy, drags a dead bird into the house. Then a mouse. Before long, another apparent victim arrives though the cat-door. Can softhearted Ellie get her beloved pet to change his wild, wild ways before he ends up in even deeper trouble? Especially when Tuffy can't understand what all the fuss is about?
Chock-a-block with lighthearted illustrations, readers experience a deliciously sharp and funny view of the world through a cat's eyes.

Anne Fine is the author of many books for young readers, including Madame Doubtfire, basis for the hit Robin Williams movie. Steve Cox lives in Bristol, England.From Booklist:
Gr. 2-4. The author of Alias Madam Doubtfire (1988) and other popular stories writes with the same delicious wickedness for a younger audience in these two illustrated chapter books, originally published in Britain. Pets are the narrators here, and they speak with venom and spirit about their owners. In Diary, Tuffy the cat is in trouble for killing a bird ("So hang me. I killed the bird. For pity's sake, I'm a cat"), but did Tuffy also get the rabbit next door? Mystery is woven into the sly pet story, and Cox's black-and-white artwork shows the hissing, spitting cat standing up to a furious dad and a "sniveling" kid. The hero of Notso Hotso is a mangy dog, Anthony, who is treated with disgust when he gets a bad itch ("in places my bum was raw"). After his owners have him shaved, the once gruesome, yucky mongrel feels suddenly powerful and confident--because he looks like a scary lion. Ross' line drawings, full of action and expression, effectively capture the transformation. Both books will be great for reading aloud and reading alone. Hazel Rochman
