A Gift from Bob: How a Street Cat Helped One Man Learn the Meaning of Christmas, is the latest Bob the Cat book from James Bowen. A Street Cat Named Bob and The World According to Bob, along with various children’s and youth versions of the story, have topped best seller lists all over the world.

Recently a friend introduced me to Bob The Cat, probably the most famous cat out there right now besides Grumpy Cat, especially in the UK. There are two full length books about this amazing cat–A Street Cat Named Bob and How He Saved My Life, and then the more recent release of The World According to Bob. Both are written by Bob’s owner James Bowen. These books are now on the top of my list for favorite books ever!
