Description

Préface
A charming, funny tale of felines and friendship, from the Queen of Dutch Children's Literature.

Auteur

Annie M.G. Schmidt (1911-95) was regarded as the Queen of Dutch Children's Literature and her books have been an essential part of every Dutch childhood for the last fifty years. She trained as a librarian but burst onto the literary scene when the newspaper she was working for discovered her gift for children's verse.. Having won numerous awards during her lifetime, including the1989 Hans Christian Andersen Award, Schmidt is now included in the Canon of Dutch History taught to all Dutch schoolchildren, alongside Spinoza, Anne Frank and Vincent van Gogh.
David Colmer has won several international awards for his translations of Dutch and Flemish novels, poetry and children's books. He has translated much of Annie M.G. Schmidt's work.

Résumé

Tibble is a reporter. He only ever writes about cats, and he's about to be fired.
Minou is a young woman who has moved into Tibble's flat. She hates dogs, likes rooftops, loves the fishmonger, and happens to have been, until very recently, a cat.
With her feline friends listening out for all the local human news, is Minou the answer to all Tibble's problems-or just the beginning of them?
A hilarious, charming story of cats, dogs, and learning to dare.
