A Street Cat Named Bob tells the true story of street musician James Bowen who had no idea how much his life was about to change after finding an injured cat curled up in the hallway of his apartment building. James was living hand-to-mouth on the streets of London, barely making enough money to feed himself, and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent but very sick animal, whom he named Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining that he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas. This best-selling book teaches us about the transformative power of love between man and animal, and is guaranteed to win over countless readers.
