Product description

Review

[Bob] has entranced London like no feline since the days of Dick Whittington. - Evening Standard

heartwarming tale - Islington Tribune

It was only a matter of time before a rubber stamp was used to autograph a book - but in Bob's case, we'll let him off. For Bob is the famous ginger moggy belonging to one-homeless busking Big Issue seller James Bowen, whose A STREET CAT NAMED BOB hit bookshop shelves last week. Fans, some bearing feline treats, queued around the block at James and Bob's first signing at the Islington branch of Waterstones last week. The purrfectly behaved Bob signed an impressive 180 books in just two hours. You gotta be kitten me. - Bookseller

a heartwarming tale with a message of hope - Daily Mail

an instantly bestselling memoir that, beside its heart-warming tale of their friendship, offers an insight into the injustice of life on the streets that's by turns frustrating and life-affirming. - The Times

This is a revealing glimpse of London's underbelly and the resourcefulness needed to survive it. But mostly it's a love story that will make your heart purr - Daily Mail

I recently read a book that reminded me how amazing having a cat can be. A Street Cat Named Bob is the story of a homeless guy and his cat, Bob... It's a true story and ideal for anyone like me who's a bit mad when it comes to felines - Glamour

The story of how Bob, the ginger cat, and James, the Covent Garden busker, transformed each other's lives has become a phenomenon: a feline urban fable. Throughout James' tale - their shared need for emotional and physical warmth; the hairy highs and lows on the streets; the growing global love for this one man and his super-loyal cat - his deep, grateful fondness for Bob shines out. - Sainsbury's Magazine --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Publisher

James Bowen is a street musician in London. He found Bob the cat in 2007 and the pair have been inseparable ever since. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
