Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of The Cricket in Times Square comes this charming tale of courage, friendship, and what it really means to be human. This classic, which originated in Holland and has withstood the test of time worldwide, will appeal to listeners young and old - and dog and cat lovers alike!
An act of kindness brings shy reporter Mr. Tibble into contact with the unusual Miss Minou. Tibble is close to losing his job because he writes only stories about cats. Fortunately, Minou provides him with real news. She gets the juicy inside information from her local feline friends, who are the eyes and ears of the neighborhood. Tibble is appreciative, but he wonders how she does it. He has noticed that Minou is terrified of dogs and can climb trees and rooftops with elegance and ease.... It's almost as if she's a cat herself. But how can that be?


What the Critics Say

"To discover Annie M. G. Schmidt is to feel like the cat who got the cream - and the salmon fillet.... Guaranteed to make anyone seven-plus to 107 who likes to curl up with a book and a cat purr with pleasure." [The Times (UK)]

Fun to listen to, and kids can listen too!

we love to listen to audio books while drawing or picking up or especially in the car. it can be hard to find things for both adults and kids. Though a touch on the unbelievable side, still fun for me and the kids loved it!
