The Cat Who Came in off the Roof Paperback

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Tibble is a reporter. He only ever writes about cats, and he's about to be fired.

Minou is a young woman who has moved into Tibble's flat.

She hates dogs, likes rooftops, loves the fishmonger, and happens to have been, until very recently, a cat.

With her feline friends listening out for all the local human news, is Minou the answer to all Tibble's problems-or just the beginning of them? A hilarious, charming story of cats, dogs, and learning to dare.

Review by

Minou (and I have a friend with a cat called this and kept thinking of her) finds herself human, instead of properly Cat, and she has a friend in Tibble, a journalist who is running the risk of being fired because he keeps writing small stories instead of big stories, but he's following his interests and he loves what he does. Minou helps him and while doing this discovers some town secrets.A little simplistic in places but charming.
