A Street Cat Named Bob

Cover: 'A Street Cat Named Bob'

Staff Review: "A Street Cat Named Bob" by James Bowen


Wounded, hungry and full of fleas, a stray ginger-colored tom cat catches the eye of James Bowen, a street musician struggling to free his life from drug addiction. The two lost souls instantly form a bond. Even though James can barely get by himself on the money he earns performing on the streets of London, he knows that he has to take care of this cat. This heartwarming story of the profound effect that two living creatures have on each other will linger long after this book is closed. A must-read for everyone.
