“The Travelling Cat Chronicles” by Hiro Arikawa
When I borrowed this book I was expecting a silly cat story. Boy was I wrong! This is truly a chronicle of a cat who traveled. In fact he traveled all over Japan. The cat is the narrator and he is very funny and wise. His relationship with his master was one that made me smile page after page. This small book is packed full of interconnections of small boys as they grew into adulthood and the emotions run the gamut. I recommend this book for anyone who is an animal lover, especially a lover of cats.
A book that “speak[s] volumes about our need for connection—human, feline or otherwise” (The San Francisco Chronicle),
