If you are already a fan of Maru, either from his blog or from I Can Has Cheezburger, then you will enjoy this book. It is much like Maru's blog with lots of cute pictures of the expressive, round-headed Scottish Fold, narrated in the same whimsical, slightly lost-in-translation style. If you're not already a Maru fan, I suggest you visit YouTube for some of his box-sliding adventures before picking up this book. In short, general cat lovers & Maru fans will give it a big thumbs up.

Review by

Unbelievably self-indulgent pap. I'll give it 1.5 stars because the cat can be cute, but this was one of the silliest, stupidest books I've read in a while. I'm glad I checked it out of the library instead of paying for it. Recommended only for cat lovers.
