The perfect Christmas gift for any cat lover

DISCOVER THE BESTSELLING HEARTWARMING STORY OF A JOURNEY AROUND JAPAN WITH A CAT

‘Bewitching... as self-possessed and comforting as – well, a cat’ SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

It's not the journey that counts, but who's at your side.

Nana is on a road trip, but he is not sure where he is going. All that matters is that he can sit beside his beloved owner Satoru in the front seat of his silver van. Satoru is keen to visit three old friends from his youth, though Nana doesn’t know why and Satoru won’t say.

Set against the backdrop of Japan’s changing seasons and narrated with a rare gentleness and humour, Nana’s story explores the wonder and thrill of life’s unexpected detours. It is about the value of friendship and solitude, and knowing when to give and when to take. TRAVELLING CAT has already demonstrated its power to move thousands of readers with a message of kindness and truth. It shows, above all, how acts of love, both great and small, can transform our lives.

Review:

"Anyone who has ever unashamedly loved an animal will read this book with gratitude, for its understanding of an emotion that ennobles us as human beings, whether we value it or not" -- LYNNE TRUSS * Guardian * "The Travelling Cat Chronicles is delightful. Like a tender feline companion the uniqueness of this book is its subtle yet persistent charm that insinuates itself into your heart long after the encounter has ended." * Fiona Melrose * "It has the warmth, painterly touch, and tenderness of a Studio Ghibli film - and it is a delight to read" * Financial Times * "Bewitching... as self-possessed and comforting as - well, a cat" * Sunday Telegraph * "A book about kindness and love, and about how the smallest things can provide happiness" * Stylist * "Arikawa has a lightness of touch that elevates this to a tale about loyalty and friendship ... while speaking to our basic human need for companionship" -- JOHN BOYNE * Irish Times * "Prepare to have your heart strings tugged by this quirky tale . . . It's a deceptively gentle story that you won't need to be a cat lover to fall for." * Sunday Mirror * "Sweet, sad and lovely, this is a roadtrip novel with a difference" * Psychologies Magazine * "Heart-wrenching but uplifting" * Red Magazine * "The Travelling Cat Chronicles is why I read books. This beautiful story has everything. It's funny, heart-warming, heart-breaking and kind." * Foreword Books * "This is the book I am giving everyone . . . the book I am recommending to anyone buying something Japan-related or cat-related, and, quite possibly, the book I am placing in someone's hand when they ask me what my favourite book is. For a bookseller, that is the highest accolade a book can ever receive." -- Cat McMillan * Waterstones York, Bookseller * "Stunningly beautiful. Tender, warm, sad and uplifting" * The Last Word Review * "A beautiful travelogue" * Sydney Morning Herald * "This story of a cat, a man, self-sacrifice and friendship will have you totally captivated ... An addictive tale of friendship and love." * Woman's Weekly, Australia * "I would urge people not to dismiss this as a 'cat book'; it is too much about human interaction and relationships to be so simply defined. A novel with wide appeal. I predict it will make a popular Christmas gift." * Readings, Australian Independent bookshop guide *
