Inspired by the heartwarming true story of James Bowen, and his New York Times Best Seller A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life , this picture book explores the familiar tale from a different point of view...Bob's! James and Bob are the best of friends--everywhere James goes, Bob the cat goes with him. But life wasn't always so happy for the scarf-loving tabby. In My Name is Bob , we learn what Bob's life was like before he found James. After his world was suddenly turned upside down, Bob found himself living alone on the street. His search for a new home ended when he met James, a street musician who needed Bob just as much as Bob needed him. Both children and adults will love this story of true friendship and second chances. A moving and uplifting tale (tail!) that will melt your heart.
