So stick my head in a holly bush...
Tuffy, the killer cat, knows what he likes. And he isn't loving the 'art' that Ellie's mum brings home from her new class. So what's a cat to do?
A scratch here just happens to shred a painting. A nudge there somehow slips a clay pot off a shelf.
Dad hopes a particularly hideous sculpture will be next, but Tuffy's having none of it.
The killer cat will go his own sweet way!
Mischief and mayhem rule in Anne Fine's brilliant new story, with hilarious illustrations by Steve Cox throughout. It is perfect for developing readers aged 5-7 years.
