The Diary of a Killer Cat




A bestselling Puffin Audiobook, now available in eAudio format.

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Diary of a Killer Cat, Anne Fine's classic story about Tuffy the murderous cat. Fabulously narrated by iconic comedian Jack Dee.

Poor Ellie is horrified when Tuffy drags a dead bird into the house. Then a mouse. But Tuffy can't understand what all the fuss is about.

Who on earth will be the next victim to arrive through the cat-flap? Can soft-hearted Ellie manage to get her beloved pet to change his wild, wild ways before he ends up in even deeper trouble?

The hilarious antics of Tuffy and his family are told by the killer cat himself.

Praise for The Diary of a Killer Cat

'This is one of the best book tapes ever. It contains two brilliant stories by the leading children's author Anne Fine ... But the thick, delicious icing on the cake is that they are read by the comedian Jack Dee. This is the first time Dee has done a tape for kids and the results are fantastic. His voice, so charming, wicked and absolutely ruthless, really brings Tuffy the killer cat to life. You'll love it
