We take journeys to explore exotic new places and to return to the comforts of home, to visit old acquaintances, and to make new friends. But the most important journey is the one that shows us how to follow our hearts....
An instant and international best seller, The Travelling Cat Chronicles has charmed listeners around the world. With simple yet descriptive prose, this novel gives voice to Nana the cat and his owner, Satoru, as they take to the road on a journey with no other purpose than to visit three of Satoru's longtime friends. Or so Nana is led to believe....
With his crooked tail - a sign of good fortune - and adventurous spirit, Nana is the perfect companion for the man who took him in as a stray. As they travel in a silver van across Japan, with its ever-changing scenery and seasons, they will learn the true meaning of courage and gratitude, of loyalty and love.
"Anyone who has ever unashamedly loved an animal will read this book with gratitude, for its understanding of an emotion that ennobles us as human beings." (Lynne Truss, author of Eats, Shoots & Leaves, in The Guardian)
"It's the wisdom and stoicism of the feline narrator that makes this book such an engaging read...but ultimately it doesn't matter that it's about a man and a cat. Like Of Mice and Men or The Kite Runner, Arikawa's central concern is friendship and the things we'll do for the people, or animals, that we love." (John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, in The Irish Times)
"Has the warmth, painterly touch, and tenderness of a Studio Ghibli film - and is a delight to read." (Financial Times)
“Arikawa examines loyalty and the nature of belonging - of people belonging to animals, and the other way around. Her book gives in to emotion without slipping into sentimentality. And like cats themselves, it walks with dignity.” (Time)
