    A fantasy story about a cat who becomes a woman when she eats something out of the rubbish bin outside The Institute When Tibble, a newspaper reporter, rescues Minou from a tree after being chased by a dog, she moves into his attic apartment When Tibble is almost fired from his job for only writing about cats, his boss gives him onechance Minou is still able to communicate with cats She hears what s going on around town by speaking to them and passes the information on to Tibble He A fantasy story about a cat who becomes a woman when she eats something out of the rubbish bin outside The Institute When Tibble, a newspaper reporter, rescues Minou from a tree after being chased by a dog, she moves into his attic apartment When Tibble is almost fired from his job for only writing about cats, his boss gives him onechance Minou is still able to communicate with cats She hears what s going on around town by speaking to them and passes the information on to Tibble He is now able to write breaking news stories, thus keeping his job But when he has a story about a local bigwig doing something wrong with only cats for witnesses, he has to decide if he will write the story or not He finally decides he will and then must decide whether he will stand by it or not Minou is also given the opportunity to turn back into a cat and must decide if she wants to change back or stay a human being.A cute book with talking cats This book was originally written in Dutch and has been translated to English There is a little bit of mystery, quest for the truth, a cat lady, and a whole host of cat characters Throughout the story Tibble is trying to get Minou to become less catish but he eventually accepts her for what she is An early chapter book that readers in early junior would enjoy, especially if they like cats The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley

    Cute cat storyThis is a good book about a woman who used to be a cat The author is supposed to be the children s book author that everyone in the Netherlands reads She has won the Hans Christian Anderson Award I am not sure if this is not the best example of her work, or if the translation is not the best that it could be, because although it was a pleasant read, it was just that, pleasant.The story is of Minou, the former cat, and the human that takes her in Mr Tibbles, who writes for the l Cute cat storyThis is a good book about a woman who used to be a cat The author is supposed to be the children s book author that everyone in the Netherlands reads She has won the Hans Christian Anderson Award I am not sure if this is not the best example of her work, or if the translation is not the best that it could be, because although it was a pleasant read, it was just that, pleasant.The story is of Minou, the former cat, and the human that takes her in Mr Tibbles, who writes for the local town newspaper He only wants to write about cats, because he is so shy, and since Minou can talk to cats, and the cats want to help him, they feed him news stories, which works out better than writing about cats.As I said, there is nothing wrong with the book, and it is cute, but It isn t likely something I would reread, as I would the Moomin books, or E Nesbit

    First sentence Tibble Where s Tibble Has anyone seen Tibble The boss wants to talk to him Where s he got to Tibble Premise plot Don t mistake Tibble for a cat he s a very human reporter for a newspaper If he can keep his job that is Tibble s news stories don t qualify as news according to his boss But his reporting takes a turn for the better after he befriends a young woman, Miss Minou He first sees her up a tree Up a tree Yes, she d been chased there by a mad dog And that i First sentence Tibble Where s Tibble Has anyone seen Tibble The boss wants to talk to him Where s he got to Tibble Premise plot Don t mistake Tibble for a cat he s a very human reporter for a newspaper If he can keep his job that is Tibble s news stories don t qualify as news according to his boss But his reporting takes a turn for the better after he befriends a young woman, Miss Minou He first sees her up a tree Up a tree Yes, she d been chased there by a mad dog And that isn t the only odd thing about Minou She also likes to climb in and out of windows, hang out with cats on the roof, and sleep curled up in a box The premise of this one Minou used to be a cat now she s a human She can still communicate with cats hence why Tibble is suddenly good at his job All the cats in town are talking to Minou about their humans, what they see and hear.My thoughts The Cat Who Came In Off the Roof is newly translated into English it was originally published in Dutch in 1970 This is an odd little fantasy for children But overall I liked it.Tibbles meets Minou when she came in off the roof and into his window If Minou were still a cat, it wouldn t be odd that he takes in a stray He keeps her because she s super useful to him Not that knowing her is without risk Minou doesn t make a good impression on most people For one thing, she rubs herself against people literally Tibbles keeps trying to train her to behuman and less cattish.I think this would make a lovely cartoon special
