A charming Dutch classic that withstands the test of time worldwide and will appeal to readers young and old--and dog and cat lovers alike! "A charming, refreshing, and funny treat." -- Kirkus Reviews, Starred Shy reporter Mr. Tibble is close to losing his job because he only writes about cats. But when an act of kindness brings him into contact with the unusual Miss Minou, his luck suddenly begins to change. Minou provides Tibble with juicy news. But it's who is giving her the gossip that's newsworthy. Minou claims that the tips come from her local feline friends, who are the eyes and ears of the neighborhood. Tibble is appreciative but can't help wondering: How could this be? And why is Minou so terrified of dogs and so skilled at climbing trees and rooftops? It's almost as if she's a cat herself. More praise for THE CAT WHO CAME IN OFF THE ROOF "Schmidt raises questions about what it is to be human, what it is to be a cat . . . and what it means to accept someone for who she is." -- Shelf Awareness, Starred
