A Street Cat Named Bob

How one man and his cat found hope on the streets

(1)

The phenomenal Number One bestseller about best friends James and Bob. Soon to be a major motion picture starring Luke Treadaway.

When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet.
Yet James couldn´t resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.
Soon the two were inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures would transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other´s troubled pasts.
A Street Cat Named Bob is a moving and uplifting story that will touch the heart of anyone who reads it.

Tier mit Herz, ein Herz für Tiere
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 30.04.2014

Der Autor und seine Katze, zwei "Outcasts" der Gesellschaft, erkennen sich als Seelenverwandte und unterstützen sich gegenseitig. Ein Buch über Freundschaft, Verantwortung, Treue, auch bei Katzenwetter. Warum nicht das Schulenglisch auffrischen und das Buch auf Englisch bestellen.
