This is a great easy read about two fellas finding and caring for each other. The story is being adapted for children in a book called (I believe) 'No Ordinary Cat'. Bob the Big Issue cat (you can see him on YouTube) just brought a huge smile to my face...and still does. This is a heartwarming story that any cat lover can appreciate.

An easy, quick read. Lovely story about how a down and out cat helped change the life of a struggling young man. They turned both their lives around.

I absolutely loved this book. I love a good underdog story and I have always believed in the healing aspects of animals. Bob sounds like an exceptional cat and his owner, equally so.

A heartwarming, honest and straight-forward story, but very disappointed this book contains no photographs (except on the cover).

I was fortunate enough to meet Bob and James on the street in London when James was still selling Big Issue. Of course I bought the book. A really good example of how animals make us better humans.

Great story about a cat who helps a recovering addict reclaim his life. Poignant and honest and simple description of what it is like to live on London's streets. Eye-opening.
