Product Description


Close proximity to animals does wonders for your mental health. Close proximity to this book will do wonders for it, too. (Daily Mail)

James writes with searing honesty ... it is an un-put-down-able book. (The Daily Mews)

The ultimate 'feel good' tale of how very, very special the bond between a man and his cat can be. (Your Cat magazine)

The second instalment from one of north London's most loved double acts... The long-awaited sequel picks up where the first book left off, telling the story of what happened to this odd couple of cool cats after their initial success. It's another tale of friendship and the value of cats, complete with lovely illustrations. (Evening Standard)

Bowen writes with compelling, brutal honesty. How refreshing that he does not sugar-coat himself, his actions or the events he describes... The World According To Bob is an eye-opening and insightful look at what it can be like to live on the streets... After the hardships of his past, it's an incredibly emotional read. A modern-day urban happy ending beckons and as it turns out Bowen was right to hope... Ranging from heartbreakingly sad to laugh-out-loud funny, The World According To Bob is a life-affirming story of sheer human strength in the face of adversity. It shows that sometimes you can find light in the darkest of places and friendship in the most unusual of creatures. By the time their story comes to a close, Bowen and Bob will have you reaching for a box of tissues. The tears may be streaming down your face and making a mess of your shirt but you'll be too happy to care. (Daily Express)

Demonstrates their remarkable bond, and how much joy a loving cat can bring (Yours magazine)

Since becoming an internet sensation, followed by James' first autobiographical book, A Street Cat Named Bob - which shot to the top of the bestseller list in 2012 - Bob fans all over the world have been waiting with bated breath for the sequel... Despite giving an honest account of the hardship of life on the streets, The World According to Bob is often humorous...
