When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.

This is the story of one Dow and out struggling to make a living. That is until he met a stray cat that he named Bob.
Bob helps him to rebuild his life and become the sort of person he only wished for. Read the book, see the film, listen to the story. Brilliant. Xx

Stephen Fry made this book great listening.
He keeps you engaged and in suspense. I will be buying the rest of the series. Great for all age ranges.

She has no intention of spending the rest of her days in an armchair and is determined to fund her way to a much more exciting lifestyle. Along with her four oldest friends - otherwise known as the League of Pensioners - Martha decides to rebel against all of the rules imposed upon them.
