  • "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."

  • "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."
