The author did an amazing job at writing out of the perspective of Tigger as the true story of his adventures across the globe get unveiled. His journey starts of in Western Australia before he has to follow his family on a long long journey to the USA!

But that is only the start of the journey! His family moves to a few more places across the journey and us readers get to experience it through the eyes of Tigger a smart ginger tomcat as he conquers challenges and grows wiser and older with each step.

Over-all verdict?

We loved the book! There are not many authors that are as empathic as Susanne and manage to have such a strong bond with their cat companion that they can produce a truly convincing view from their companions perspective. And this style of writing is exactly what enthralls us cat lovers / owners as we are able to relate to our own companions and their adventures, at times it feels like she must have been crawling along the floor with her companion to be able to really capture the cat point of view. You will not want to put the book down until you are done. 😉

After a career as teacher, university lecturer and higher education manager she now devotes her time to writing. Having won some recognition in Australia for her short stories, she embarked upon the memoirs of Tigger, the world-travelling cat. An Australian story and a World War II biographical novel are also in the pipeline. Susanne has three children and lives with her husband, a fluctuating number of their young people and an assortment of animals in West Sussex, England.

      1. Barnes and Noble doesn’t sell (at least not for Nook) outside the US so no reason for you to think of them.
        One of my favorite books is actually a series of adventures written by Peter Gethers about the real adventures he had with his cat….it starts with “The Cat Who Went to Paris”. It from more than a few years ago but they had quite the adventures. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves cats.
