Today we are looking at the book Tigger: Memoirs of a Cosmopolitan Cat by Susanne Haywood. The paperback version of the book will be released tomorrow (28th of Jan 2015) and to celebrate this the ebook will be on Sale for 5 days from this day!
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.
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. 😉
