Review first posted on wwwFantasyLiteraturecomAnnie MG Schmidt who died in 1995 was a beloved and well respected author in the Netherlands her native land In 1988 she won the Hans Christian Anderson Award the most distinguished international award in children s literature which is granted to authors and illustrators whose body of work has made a lasting contribution to children s literature Unfortunately until now Schmidt s work has not been published in the English language so she is not well known in the US That may change with the 2016 publication of her 1970 book The Cat Who Came In off the Roof Dutch title Minoes translated by David ColmerTibble a painfully shy reporter is on the verge of losing his job with the Killenthorn Courier newspaper his editor is tired of his articles about cats there s never any news in them The problem is that Tibble is too introverted to approach and talk to people and find out actual news in his town On his way home he helps an attractive young redheaded woman who has been treed by a furiously barking German Shepherd When he finds her later that evening rummaging for food in his garbage bin soaked with the rain and stuffing a large fish skeleton into her mouth he feels sorry for her and invites her into his home to dry off and share a mealThis mysterious young lady who introduces herself as Miss Minou tells Tibble that she can talk to cats because she was once a cat herself Tibble considers her totally bonkers but he has to admit she has an unusual ability to communicate with his cat Fluff So he lets her stay the night curled up in a large box lined with fresh newspaper On her way to bed Minou mentions that another cat Cross Eyed Simon told her that his owner a schoolteacher is depressed because no one in town has remembered his twenty fifth anniversary as head teacher at the local schoolAnd suddenly Tibble has his first legitimate news story His editor is delighted and Minou develops an awesome ability to glean all the latest news from the local population of cats who watch what their owners do and say although some cats are helpful than others Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament the School Cat said Make sure it s in tomorrow s paper Thanks said Minou He d been sitting in on the history lesson againSo Minou stays with Tibble and feeds him news scoops while he feeds her fish This arrangement works out well for everyone involved although Tibble has some trouble with trying to break Minou of overly cattish habits like rubbing up against people and stalking birds and mice Minou herself is torn she can t decide whether she wants to remain a human or assuming she ever gets the chance go back to being a cat But when the local cats find out that Mr Ell the president of the local Animal Lovers Association is not only cruel to animals when no one else is looking of course but is committing criminal acts it will take the combined efforts of cats and humans to try to bring his nefarious deeds to lightThe Cat Who Came In off the Roof has an original uirky flavor that may derive from its European origin and setting For example most of the main characters are adults rather than children The various cat characters are particularly appealing and memorable including the Tatter Cat a stray who views humans with deep distrust but is Minou s primary source for interesting news and the misguided School Cat I ve got some news Henry the Eighth got divorced Minou s Aunt Sooty turns up occasionally to offer her suggestions and adviceWash yourself with spit Lick yourself That is the beginning and end of all wisdomIn its original Dutch form The Cat Who Came In off the Roof was the 1971 winner of Dutch Zilveren Griffel Silver Pencil literary award for children s literature It was the basis for the popular 2001 Dutch film Minoes which was later dubbed and released in an English version under the titles Miss Minoes and Undercover KittyThis charming fantasy novel is written at a middle grade level but the humor and deft characterization of the local cat population will endear it to adults as well as children It s a simple but heartwarming tale and a must read for anyone who loves cats I received a free copy of the ebook from the publisher in return for a review
