Book Review: “The Cat Who Came in Off the Roof” by Annie M.G. Schmidt
Book Reviews / January 4, 2016

Annie M.G. Schmidt’s “The Cat Who Came In Off the Roof” was originally published in 1970, but its publishers are smart to reissue the title now – the character at the story’s core, Mr. Tibble, would fit in quite well with today’s cat video-obsessed culture. As Mr. Tibble’s boss points out at the beginning of the middle-grade novel, “Apparently you only ever associate with cats.” Been there, Mr. Tibble. Been there.
