If you’re not already one of the hundreds of thousands of fans of James Bowen and his street cat Bob, this is a good time to get to know the amazing duo. Since the publication of A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life was first published in 2012, Bob and James have been capturing hearts around the world. The book became an international bestseller which has been translated into 25 languages, and there are rumors of a movie deal.

The sequel, The World According to Bob: The Further Adventures of One Man and His Street-wise Cat, was published in the UK last summer and is now finally available in the US.

James and Bob have been on a remarkable journey together. James Bowen went from being a homeless drug addict to a bestselling author. The pair’s public events draw hundreds of people.

The second book picks up where the first one left off.  Bob is by James’ side through thick and thin and becomes his guardian angel on more than one occasion. Click here to read my full review of the book.


James and Bob are currently promoting their newest book in the UK. Judging by the photo above, Bob approves of My Name is Bob! Read my review of My Name is Bob here.
