5.0 out of 5 stars Bob and James 3 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a heart strings pulling story. Didn't want to put it down once I started reading it, so I read it in one sitting. I am not really a cat lover but Bob is an extraordinary "person" cat and clearly loves James as much as James loves him. I wish them both all the luck in the world and look forward to reading more of their adventures in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very inspiring 24 July 2014
By Anne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A wonderful tribute to the power of friendship between pet and owner. The need to car for Bob was the start of James road to recovery. This is a lesson to us all to care more for each other as well as the animals, and support those who are struggling daily to get by in a hard, seemingly dead end life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning! 4 July 2014
By Caity
Format:Kindle Edition
I love the bob books, so when I saw this listed on Amazon I pre-ordered it straightaway. However, I soon found out when I started to read that it is the same book as The World According to Bob. On checking I see it is a specially adapted book for children (though there appears to be little different). So a note of warning - if you already got World, don't buy this one. If you haven't - go and buy it immediately, it's fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL BOOK! 1 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Once again, another fabulous Bob book, this one especially adapted for children from The World According to Bob. Every child in every school should read the story of James and Bob - their journey from despair on the streets to finding hope and a place in society again will give youngsters a good insight into how it's always possible to turn your life around as well as showing them about the joys of having an animal to love. They don't come much better than this.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the love of Bob. 8 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I gave 4 stars because all bits from other previous books James Bowen had written and nothing there was new however I still did enjoy the book, it makes me laugh and is very thought provoking. This book is the kind of book that will appeal to anyone who likes animals, it makes you understand how animals heal and help in many ways. Thank you for the 3 most enjoyable books about Bob I have ever read cannot wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars One can't hear this love story too much 20 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback
Another lovely book about Bob and James. One can't hear this love story too much. In this day and age of terrible cruelty and suffering, this compassionate bringing together of Souls is uplifting. In addition, I hope that by buying these books, some of my money may go to Bob and James. They help charities such as The Blue Cross too, extra love!
