Top Customer Reviews
However upon reading Tyfoon's Tale, because a friend made me promise to, I have
rediscovered the pleasure of literature. This is a wonderful book. It's so much more
than a story about a cat. I found myself on an amazing emotional journey that takes
in relationships, travel, love, death and the magical bond between a woman and some
of the animals with whom we share this wonderful planet. Since finishing this book I've
found a new passion for reading and am actually on my second reading of Tyfoon's Tale.
A great book - buy it.
Tyfoon is a really impressive cat and Sylvia an astonishing and strong woman with a great heart.
Witty and entertaining I read it in one sitting and loved it. I hate the idea of weepy animal books and this one had the right balance.
Thank you Sylvia Murphy - another great read.
I didn't put it down again until I finished the last page! I just couldn't put it down until I knew the whole story of a cat, his adopted parents, how they met and the path their lives took together.

Admittedly I am an addict. I am addicted to stories about animals and particularly cats, so when I came across Tyfoon's Tale, naturally I had to have it and I was not disappointed. Read morePublished on 6 Sept. 2013 by yetismith
Looks quite a slim book but the story is so good that it really did not matter. Quite a sad story in parts but I couldn't put it down. Extremely well written too.Published on 12 Oct. 2012 by Diana Howard
