  • Fleet, funny and tender... Arikawa clearly knows cats as well as any human can.

  • A book about kindness and love, and about how the smallest things can provide happiness

  • 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
