Description

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.

About the Author

James Bowen is a former “busker” or street performer living in north London, and the author of the best-selling book A Street Cat Named Bob and A Gift From Bob. James found Bob in 2007 and after nursing his injured leg back to health, the pair have been inseparable ever since—even riding the bus together, where they always try to get a window seat.

    A Great Cat Lovers Book About A Real Cat!

    By on

    My husband and I saw the movie. We fell in love with Bob. Since books are always better than the movie and give you more details, I looked the book up on Chewy. I loved the book so much that I bought it for my mom and she ended up talking her book club ladies into reading it also. It's been a hit to everyone that I've recommended it to!

    I'd heard bits and pieces about this story and wanted to know the rest. Only half way through, but I'm enjoying the simplicity and honesty the author brings in the telling of two lives. It's a remarkable story.

    A touching story.

    By on

    Okay, I'm a softy for rescue stories. This is so well written though, about how Bob helped his chosen human. of course, that's usually the way with out fur-friends; who rescued who. Still, I think you love this story and will want to get the sequels to the Bob story.

    AMAZING Book!!!

    By on

    How is it that I just heard about this book??? An easy and truly uplifting, heartwarming read. I literally laughed out loud (in public) and even cried a bit several times. I read this book in two days, immediately ordered two other books about Bob and searched out every youtube video about Bob, the author and the movie. One of the BEST cat books I have ever read.
