There are only three things a cat needs for a fine life - good food, a comfortable bed, and universal praise and love. Luckily - after converting his human, Peter, from cat hater to cat lover - Norton has plenty of all three. And they're about to get better, as his Peter and girlfriend Janice decide to up sticks and spend a year in rural France.
Norton in Provence is like - well - the cat who got the cream, whether he is hunting for mice in the rambling garden, hanging out with the local stray cats in the sun-drenched town square or being treated to delicacies in fine restaurants. And with Norton by his side, Peter finds that his Gallic neighbours welcome their new guests with open arms.
Over the course of the year, Peter learns how to sit back, relax and enjoy the pleasures of a simple life. In addition to being the internationally bestselling author of A Cat Called Norton,Peter Gethers has written two novels and, using the pseudonym Russell Andrews, five bestselling thrillers. In his spare time, he is a book editor and runs a film company.
It's also a good read but not as charming as the first one. Then again, Norton is a exceptional cat. Once you know that, nothing is quite so surprising any more. Also a bit more showbiz narcissism from the author. Still good for a lot of feline humour, though.
