Product Description


“Say goodbye to Hello Kitty and hello to Maru...the elegant book of full-color photos captures the magic that is Maru.” (USA Today)

“I Am Maru takes readers inside the lives of Maru and his owner mugumogu, peeking into boxes, boxes, more boxes...With his big, round eyes and white-glove paws, Maru finds a way to burrow inside anything–and don’t be surprised if one of those places is your heart!” (People.com)

From the Back Cover

Meet Maru!

This round, adorable Scottish Fold cat may be an internet sensation, but he knows how to keep his celebrity status from going to his fluffy head . . . mostly. Maru and his owner, mugumogu, give readers a peek into the low-key life of the world’s most famous cat. See all his favorite hiding places—trash cans, cupboards, cereal boxes . . . if it’s cozy, he’s there—meet his treasured toys, and learn what it means to wield just the right amount of cat-titude.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous Maru 12 Oct 2011
Having watched all the Maru videos many times, i was really happy to buy this book on my feline hero! Must admit i am a 'cat person' & my tabby & white best friend does lots of things that Maru does, especially loving boxes.
Maru is a natural 'show-off'! There are so many lovely pics in this book & it is also nice that there is a bit of Maru's life history there too!
Would tell any Maru fans to buy this book, it is worth the money for sure. Long may Maru play!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Cat-tastic book 18 Jan 2012
By hekubis
This is a really fun book, full of a-mew-sing photos of Maru, the cuddly and chubby looking Japanese sensation. Great to flick through after you've had a hard day at work. Hard to imagine anyone not smiling after looking through I am Maru!

5.0 out of 5 stars MARU 22 Jun 2014
By Jessica
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I brought this as a present for somebody and although I haven't read it properly, I had a quick flick through. The person I brought this for is a fan of Maru's and has been watching online for a few months. This book has so many amazingly cute pictures from kittenhood through to adulthood. Lots of information and even a little description of his personality. I think this is a great buy for any Maru fans out there :D

Thoroughly scrumptious pussycat. The book is as enjoyable as the You- tube videos. Makes a great gift for cat lovers and all Maru followers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book, shame the cover was a little ripped 16 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great product, prompt delivery. Unfortunately the paper cover of the book was a little ripped at the bottom when it arrived - not sure if it was already damaged or was ripped in the process. Otherwise - a very cute and unique Xmas gift.
