Publisher's Summary

The sequel to the bestselling A Street Cat Named Bob continues the remarkable adventures of James and Bob showing - through new stories - how Bob's extraordinary street wisdom has shown James the meaning of friendship, loyalty, trust - and happiness.
"Since Bob had appeared, I'd made huge strides in my life. For more than a decade I'd been a homeless drug addict. I'd been lost to the world and forgotten what was important in life. Now I'd got myself back on my two feet, but as I put the past behind me, I was still stepping unsteadily into the future. I still needed help in the right direction. Bob was always there to offer guidance and friendship."
James and his street cat Bob have been on a remarkable journey together. In the years since their story ended in the bestselling A Street Cat Named Bob James, with Bob's help, has begun to find his way back to the real world.

How can you not love this book!

I was brought to tears in the middle of my office whilst listening to the last chapter. James mentioned a lady from Wales who lost her fight to cancer and I am proud to say I was one of her carers and that she was my reason for falling in love with these books! Every time is see Bobs face I think of her and how much she enjoyed the first book. I only wish she had got to read this one. Thank you James and Bob for sharing your story and giving hope and peace to people who truly need it.
Ps I really enjoyed this book as much as the first one.

Would you consider the audio edition of The World According to Bob to be better than the print version?

I have read A Street Cat Named Bob and listened to The World According to Bob and enjoyed both. The narrator was excellent.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Because I am 'a cat person' obviously Bob. The bond between James and Bob is so telepathic.

What does Kristopher Milnes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

I just can't get enough of the details regarding this story and even follow James on Facebook. I am also looking forward to the film. I just missed seeing Bob whilst I was in a shop in Notting Hill. I only saw the cameraman with 'A Street Cat Names Bob' written on the camera. Pity.
