Product Description

Review

"Peter Gethers' trio of books about the globe-trotting Norton are witty and warm. We not only learn of Norton's sweet personality but also of the author's feelings about what really matters when it comes to love and cats" (Vicki Myron, author of DEWEY Los Angeles Times)

"Charming, witty and winning" (San Francisco Examiner)

"Witty and warmhearted - a delightful addition to the cat-fancier's bookshelf" (Kirkus Reviews)

"This book is the cat's meow as far as global romping with a feline companion goes ... There's plenty of wit and wisdom here for anyone who enjoys travelling with a loved one, especially if its a cat" (New York Newsday)

"Those who like this kind of thing will love this kind of thing" (Los Angeles Times)

Peter Gethers loses a star for (ironically enough) getting a bit preachy about his attitude to religion in one or two places. Other than that, well up to Norton's and his usual standards. It's a bit strange that this book, and the other one which I gather is due to come out in a few months' time, weren't published in sequence here in the UK, but that didn't really interfere with my enjoyment. Very much for fans of cats and/or France, of course, but there are plenty of us around.

This book follows the adventures of Norton, a small scottish fold kitten (Scottish fold is a breed of cats where the ears are small and folded over). Norton comes across as an extremely loveable character who has many adventures with his human companion over the years. A great book for cat lovers.

By A Customer on 29 Mar. 1998
Format: Paperback
Having enjoyed "A Cat in Paris", having lived in the City of Lights myself, and being a confessing and incorrigible cat lover, no less than three friends gave me a copy each of "A Cat abroad" for my birthday. I still appreciate their consideration, but would these dear, well-meaning people had spent their money on something more exciting, like books on "The Swiss Social Security System of the late 1800s" or even "Jane Fonda's Killer workout", all of which would have been a lot more enjoyable than the collected adventures of not Norton the Cat but Peter the puff-chested, name-dropping and show-offish author. I don't need to go through all the details again (see krupag@interquest.de's comments below; he or she is right on). Norton figures as a minor detail, and most of the time the reader will only be informed on what can of catfood little Furry dined on at any one specific event that otherwise revolves entirely about the author himself. And of course how much people admire him (Peter, not Norton) for such a great cat. The one credit that I do give Peter Gethers is that he writes a lot of nice things about my beloved France (let's just disregard the painful blunders that he makes when trying to bring French words across). Bottom line: please, my friends, if you read this - don't give me any more Peter Gethers books - see suggestions above!

I think this is a really cool book. Norton must be the coolest, best cat in the world. This book was cute and funny. The many incidents throughout the book were unbelievable. I think the cat could have been talked about more. I am going to buy it really soon, and I also hope to read the cat who went to paris.

I love this series of books by Peter Gethers. This is the first one I have read so far, (I am not reading them in sequence). It's just a pity the hospitality industry isn't so accommodating in this country as America and Europe seem to be. Having two Persian cats (did have three, recently lost one), I can really relate to how the author feels about this furry friend. They all have their own personality. Nice, easy read.

I giggled my way through a Eurostar/Belgian train journey with the first book and then spent the next two days adoring Norton in Provence - even if a few of the US references were a little obscure from a UK point of view.

In Europe the ground floor is just that and the one above is the first floor!

Looking forward to the 3rd book being available in the UK

Absolutely brilliant book. A book to make you smile, and if you love cats, and have your own, there was certainly places that relate. I do think the publishers should of made it clearer that it's a re-release of 'A Cat Who Travelled Aboard'. I love the Norton series and think Peter is a very good author.

This is a funny book spoiled by the constant use of bad language. The bad language had nothing to add to the book and if it was left out it would make the book more enjoyable.
