Summary

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.

Critic reviews

"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." ( Sunday Times)
"Hilarious" ( Guardian)

Superb!

This is laugh out loud funny and appreciated by young and old alike. Wonderful story and superb narration as you'd expect from Jack Dee.

Unfortunately, I also bought The Return of Killer Cat which, as others have noted, was incomplete and therefore a wasted credit.

Could you give those of us affected an additional credit please Audible? I have just had to buy it again as a cd as my grandchildren and I were all so disappointed.

Too short.

It was too short for me because I like long books but if you sleep a little while after you go to bed then this is the right book for you!
